So, here you all go, writing me such fascinating and thoughtful comments on my last post. They were (are) great. I really wanted to take the time to respond to them properly - to write a second post, in fact, in response, because the comments deserved that.
And instead I dropped off the face of the blogosphere.
Unfortunately, this is not that post, either; I ran out of an allergy medication this weekend (don't you always run out of prescriptions at the beginning of a long weekend, when your pharmacy is only open M-F? I always do, anyway!), and thought my allergies were just killing me. Then I got the medicine today and figured out that, no, in fact, my allergies aren't THAT bad--I have an actual COLD.
One of those obnoxious summer colds where my nose is running like a tap and my throat is sore from post-nasal drip and from sleeping with my mouth open because I can't breathe through my nose. (It's really dry here, which is what gets the throat going.) And my head is full of gunk and I feel kind of hot and achy. And I basically can't come up with any good response to your wonderful comments because any mental energy I have has to go to figuring out Evidence and Labor Law and co-organizing our annual Moot Court competition. Or watching the U.S. Open. You know, priorities.
But I promise I'll get back to it. At some point. Maybe this weekend?
In the meantime, hope everyone's Labor Day was wonderful (if you're in the U.S.). Now it's a countdown to Thanksgiving!
