What would you give to never ever see another picture of TomKat?

1. I’m back.
2. Still having those headaches.
3. Tried to call the doctor today to schedule a physical and the office was closed. Must call back tomorrow. I’m asking my body, Are you going for some kind of record? If so, there are better, less painful, ones we could try.
Even with a little sit on the highway near four this morning due to a huge pile up, we made amazing time.
We were nearly side-swiped by a BMW somewhere in Eastern Pennsylvania; I was having a little trouble staying in my lane. For a while there Paul and I were trading off driving every two miles because we kept having narcoleptic fits. As Paul had already driven the majority of the way I tried to be a hero and therefore continually struggled to stay right of the dotted line.
We got in around 9 and spent a couple hours hanging out with the husband and half the children of our hosts. When I tried to remember the last time I showered I couldn’t.
I am now fortified with coffee, a fresh bagel and a lengthy shower.
If I had the energy or inclination I could walk up to the roof and look at the Statue of Liberty.
Paul, unloading the car was tempted to say,”Howyadooin?” to a guy on the street and then realized, here, it is no joke. Matt told him if he does try it and gets a nod he’ll know he passed. I will keep you posted.
“All family of us” as Lydia used to say, are packing up to hit the road. We are visiting friends in New Jersey. It is a twelve hour drive and we are driving through the night. Lydia has strep throat but shouldn’t be contagious by the time we pull in some time tomorrow morning.
I have had a headache almost every day for three weeks and that’s no metaphor. I have been looking furtively at the carbon monoxide detector which shows “0”. We bought it the last time I had a non stop headache which I later realized was due to giving up caffeine. When I am not drinking coffee, I am sucking on a Coke, so that’s not it this time.
All that to say I am feeling a little less than able to pack up my colleagues and drive through the night.
Mr. Brave Man just asked, “What are you doing?” so I think I better hurry.
Christopher wanted to bring his popcorn popper and Paul just denied him his tennis racket.
We are going to have so much fun.
I just need some drugs…something stronger than Tylenol…I’ve never tried cocaine, but I’ve heard it’s good.
Paul is sounding harried.
If you pray, please do. If you don’t, would it be so much skin off your nose? Please.
Did I mention we are going to have so much fun?
Einstein’s Protege is reading over my shoulder and questioning my intent regarding the aforementioned drugs.
Hope everyone is happy and well.
