Despite a reprehensible diet and shocking exercise habits, I’ve been dodging bullets like flu, colds, and mononucleosis all semester. First, DK came down with mono and spent three weeks sleeping. E and MB have both had bad colds, and my partner BD just got his own mono diagnosis, but so far I’ve been sitting pretty.

But my luck may be changing. I noticed a twinge of sore throat a couple days ago, and despite copious vitamin C consumption it’s still lingering.  Tonight I’m trying a cup of tea (courtesy of MA). If that doesn’t work, I might have to officially declare myself sick.  Ugh.
