A quick update on the roofing


I slept better last night. The pain medicine helps. And even during the day the pain is better than it has been for the last 10 days. I’m not yet certain if the one “mosquito bite” is improving. I think it is, but I am biased. I am going to say that I am cautiously optimistic that all the drugs are working and I am improving.

That said, they’ve had a strange side-effect. I am feeling incredibly Puckish today. You should see some of the amusing (to me, at least) e-mail I’ve sent at work this morning.

So if I seem a little odd2 over the next few days, understand it is not because I have had some kind of mental breakdown, gone round the bend, left for Coventry, or am playing a skillfully acting prank on you. It’s the medicine. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

  1. You know: shingles. Duh!
  2. Well, odder than usual, anyway.
