In other words, I haven’t been here.
Now, there are two schools of thought regarding truancy. One is the old cliché, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Then there’s the opposing, but equally hackneyed, out of sight, out of mind. Hmmm.
What to believe? What to believe? My experience tends to prove the latter, but my hope remains pinned to the former. I guess we’ll find out, won’t we? Either you’ll have missed my posts or you won’t even have noticed my absence.
You see, I’ve had the flu. Yes, my dear and faithful reader, this is a clumsy and obvious bid for your sympathy. And no, I didn’t have a particularly severe case. It was just your average, run of the mill virus: coughing, sneezing, aching, and lots of nose blowing. Wait, did I forget to mention the chronic whining and complaining? I had that, too.
Sure, I could’ve been stoic; I could’ve hung tough and continued posting, but I didn’t. Instead of regaling you with amusing tales and anecdotes, instead of thinking of your needs, I curled up like a salted snail. I did, I turned into a dull, slow-witted, heavily congested slug.
But like a slimy trail, I’ve left all that behind me. Showered and dressed in freshly laundered clothes, I’m prepared to return to the world of the living. And you know what? It’s good to be back.
Imagine that. Absence has, indeed, made my heart grow fonder : )
