My head is still so stuffed this morning that I have a pretty darned good idea what it feels like to be a prize 10-point buck mounted on the wall over the fireplace in the den. Get it? Stuffy head? Stuffed? I kill me.

So I contacted the office to let them know I wouldn’t be in today, then went back to bed. When I woke up a short time later, my sinuses were swimming in whatever goop fills up sinuses when I’m sick, making it impossible to breathe through my nose and giving me a pounding headache. I stubbornly stayed in bed until around ten-thirty, tossing and turning this way and that to see if I could get just a little drainage going, but no joy, so I gave up. I’ll probably spend the rest of the day propped in the recliner with a book, reading and popping antihistamine pills.

My Darling B pointed out that I was sick this time last year and my golly she was right.I spent the whole first weekend of October flat on my back with a monster head cold. “Maybe you’ve got seasonal allergies,” she suggested, and I suppose she could be right. I’ll have to wait and see if this happens again next fall. I’m not sure how much of a difference it’ll make, though. If I’m not infectious I suppose that means I could go to the office, but wouldn’t be able to get much work done in this condition. I’d have to get a doctor to give me a medicinal H-bomb for my sinuses so I wouldn’t have to ooze and snort my way through the working day.
