getting sick

Thursday, March 01, 2007

May God Bless those affected by the tornadoes in Alabama.
I just came back from a short and impromptu business trip to a more northerly state. My travel partner rented a big honkin' SUV. I said I ain't driving that thing. It was a nice and short trip and we left the afternoon of the day it started snowing. We were treated to the scenery of fresh blanket of snow everywhere (except on the road, thank God). So we've seen mountains, foothills, snow, and snowfall ... we were both ready to return to good ol' warm Texas. We didn't particularly enjoy standing in 22-degree F with light snow and wind waiting for the rental car shuttle to take us to the terminals.

I woke up this morning with a sore throat. It hasn't gotten better. I think I'm trying to get sick. I was sitting in the office after hours making use of the speedy internet connection to browse Gizmodo, when it got colder and colder. I think I left the office when my body was no longer able to generate heat. My right shoulder is sore too. I must have hoisted my luggage over my right shoulder at some point. My body keeps reminding me that I'm no longer in my 20's.

G'night. I need some sleep.
