Why it sucks getting old: When one bit of your body goes down, it takes the whole damn system down with it.
I managed to get food poisoning (for the second time this year) yesterday, which took me out of commission for about 24 solid hours. Not only were there the expected… discomforts… but I managed to strain the right side of my back. And on top of that, my life is never simple.1 Practical result: I was incoherent for about twelve of those twenty-four, and asleep for eight of the rest.
(At least, I hope that’s what I did, as opposed to any of the other nasty possibilities.)
So I’m operating at about 75% efficiency today, and I’m more than a day behind. If you’re waiting on stuff from me, please expect a delay of one or more days.
1 This is, however, my own fault.
