After Hours

Recovered from personal bio-combat

Those who know me known my reputation of rarely getting seriously ill.

It's the one trade-off I've earned from massively overactive

allergies—my immune system is always at Threat Level: Red, so incoming

infestors stand little chance of avoiding my fanatic hunter-killer

lymphocytes.


That said, last week, a nasty bit of stomach flu forged some entry

papers, set up shop in my digestive track, and instigated a nasty

rebellion against the forces of peaceful food consumption. After a

brutal 36-hour combat that saw great suffering and hardship on both

sides, the forces of freedom and health were once again victorious, and

I was able to safely eat and sleep again. Today, I return to the

blogosphere scarred, but stronger and wiser than before. I know that I

and the veteran T-Cells that fought with me during those harrowing

hours will never forget what we saw (or tasted), and that we vow to be

even more vigilant in the future.
