my body is nice and the weather inside my body is terrible!  I don’t know what I have, but this cough hurts and is making me wet my pants, which infuriates me; my nose is running, I’m hot, out of strength, petulant and guilty and uncomfortable because I stuffed myself with compassionate leftover food from a party I couldn’t attend.

I had a pertussis and tetanus booster at the beginning of the month.  I couldn’t have whooping cough, could I?
