FRIDAY: Hey, I'm over the flu! Everything's set for the MLA.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Come to think of it, perhaps I'm not over the flu.
SATURDAY: I am so not over the flu.
SUNDAY: Well, maybe I'm over the flu enough to interview these job candidates.
SUNDAY, TWO CANDIDATES LATER: Um, I hope nobody minds me while I contemplate fainting.
SUNDAY, ABOUT AN HOUR AFTER THAT: Mommy...!
In other words, I was in SD for the MLA, but had to relocate to Orange County two days early. Luckily, one of my colleagues kindly agreed to deliver my paper for me tonight. (Who knew I was actually a man on the verge of retiring? :) ) I'm feeling a bit better today, but am still hacking and coughing all over the place.
