This poor observer of world events is down with the Monster COLD! It crept upon me in my bed while I was fast asleep on Friday and has been attacking my environment since! It forced me to sit in front of a television throughout the day of Saturday watching inane movies, WEEDs, and Jericho, both of which by the way, weren't bad! My normally optimistic viewpoint of the world kept the cough syrup and fluids going down faithfully believing that by this day I would be my old self and the MONSTER would have left my home, leaving me in one piece and ready to face a new week-alas! twas not to be...as I am still being mauled and shaken by this horrible beast! The only bright spot was the occasional glimpse of sunlight pouring through my window reminding me that better days are yet to come-- please, I beg you, cough and cold season be gone with YOU!
