I have been out of the pool for more than a week due to a bad flu/ebola-like cold (I am convinced that patient zero was the cherubic toddler who sneezed on me two weeks ago on the M79). Thanks to the miracle of antibiotics, I hope to be back in action by Thursday. I really miss the exercise (that says alot). I have consumed so much chicken noodle soup that my local ramen shop will be sad to see me go back to work.
In the meantime, I stumbled across "Can We Please Stop Talking About Kale Now?" -- it amused me to no end, in light of my health/self-improvement efforts over the past year. Where the Mermaid's health is concerned, "Jewish Penicillin" (in this case, made by a guy named Yoshi) trumps kale any time. Even if I still sound like Darth Vader.
