dear people,

if you are someone i know, and i was supposed to call or email you or do something for or with you this past week, please know that i’m sorry it didn’t happen. i got a cold and then i contracted a severe case of listlessness, depression and general malaise.  for days i couched and stared at the television and took naps from which i woke sweaty and disoriented.  you wouldn’t have wanted to be in contact with me for fear i’d give you my cold or lower your morale in some way.

you’ll be happy to know that the cold is mostly gone, as are the listlessness and malaise.  the depression i’ve had since i was eighteen, and it’s gonna take more than cough drops and bad naps to get rid of that.
