I fell off the face of the earth yesterday. Actually, I did something highly unusual for me: I laid on the couch and didn’t move. It all started Monday evening when my stomach thought it might be feeling a bit wonky. I tried to convince it otherwise. I’m guessing I ate something that would have preferred not to have been eaten. In any case, it kept me up the entire night, making its re-aquaintance with the world about 3:00 a.m. Tuesday morning. I felt remarkably better after that. Where ‘remarkably’ means I could actually sleep. At least for the hour and a half before my alarm went off. At which point I stubbornly dragged my exhausted carcass out of bed, fully intending on heading in to the day job.
As it turned out, that wasn’t the best idea I’ve ever had. I made it downstairs before becoming aware of how bad an idea it actually was, phoned in my absence, and went back to bed.
I’m not the best at being sick. I tend to feel I should still be doing something. Anything. Laying around and I don’t really have a long-term relationship. Sure, I give in to it. I relax…usually with a good book, or watching a movie, but spending the entire day napping on the couch and not even venturing near my office, is out of my comfort zone. I must have needed it, though.
So, here I am, bright and early Wednesday, giving a skeptical look at anything food related, (Also against my nature. I LOVE food.) pounding out a WIPpet post, before I head off to work.
Today you get a simple six paragraphs, immediately following last week’s installment, but we’ve now switched to Jannis’s POV.
Janni should have let Tork eat him. She still could. The young dragon hadn’t had his evening meal yet and though the pompous, illiterate son of a drunken noble wouldn’t be more than a mouthful, Janni would at least be rid of him.
“Probably just give him indigestion,” she muttered.
“What’s that, Janni?” Fiona, Dracon Hold’s head cook, glanced up from her dinner preparations. “Who has indigestion? I’ve got a remedy for that, you know.”
“No one. Yet.”
Fiona’s round, soft face scrunched as she surveyed Janni. “You have that look.”
As always, you can find all that preceded this by going here.
I should have a ROW80 update as well but, sadly, there is nothing to report on that front.
As for my basking of last week…still laying on my rock in the sun…waiting…
