Being a grumbling whine.

Feeling quite grotty today, thick raspy lungs and a very sore throat. I fear a nasty cold or virus is arriving. This is probably due to spending the day with Slim and Larry at the zoo on Sunday (after Slim and I had planned to go for an afternoon walk while Larry was with his father's new family). The other kids came down with a virus infection which worried Slim enough for her to bring him back home early, but not enough to protect me—or his kindergarten fellows—from the infection. Her standards are quite remarkably one-sided: her kid must go to kindergarten when he is probably carrying a virus, because she's a working single mother and cannot stay home with him, but other parents' kids must stay home from kindergarten when they are probably carrying a virus, because she's a working single mother and cannot afford for him to get sick and have to stay home.

Anyway. To bed, hopefully this will all blow over with careful rest and feeding. Wish me luck.

Best wishes, of course for a rapid kicking of the viral interloper.

Sorry for single mums, but how about everyone else that gets sick because of it? I just think of the women at the bank I used to work at, keeping up their 'perfect attendance' record while infecting everyone else when they should have stayed home. Bah.
Hope you get better.

Gluten bastardrung, indeed, poor Udge! I hope it exits your system very soon so you can kick Slim in the shin.

Thank you, my dears; there has been some gluten, some hunkering and a bit of oldfashioned vitamin C, and the virus/cold (while) still present appears to be receding.

May, Slim is a buddy rather than a girlfriend. I've known her for many years, long before Larry was born.

...which seems to prove that a pure friendship between a man and a woman is possible.
