Everyone here has been laid low by some vicious chest cold the past three days, though it might actually be the flu.
I googled "What's the difference between the flu and a cold?" and got answers that were not that useful. Apparently with a flu you have a high fever and with a cold you have less of a fever or no fever at all. Since we don't have a thermometer here in the delagar household, who knows?
Luckily, all the drugs are sold as cold and flu remedies, so I just bought one of each, and we've been doping up and sleeping fifteen or twenty hours a day.
Anyway I have.
I feel better now, except really light-headed and bizarre, probably due to not eating anything except tea and honey since Thursday. I just made myself some soup, though, we'll see if that helps.
The kid and Dr. Skull are asleep and not coughing spectacularly for once -- it's six minutes to three in the morning -- and the cats are so pleased that someone, anyone is awake that they are running madly back and forth through the house, tackling one another.
How's your new year going?
