Thursday’s open line

If things seem a little slow around here, or I seem particularly thick, it’s because I’m having my semi-annual bout with bronchitis. This, combined with a new (and soon to be ex-) doctor who doesn’t see the value of my own insights into my health (or lack therein) is making for an excruciating week.

I write this not to elicit your sympathy, but rather to excuse my stupidity. Carry on.
