February 2

After days of enforced solitude, yesterday was surprisingly social — brunch with one group of friends, late afternoon donuts with another — and I spent the entire time pretty much leaning back and hoping that I wasn’t infecting anyone (Kate to everyone, at more than one point: “He can’t be infectious anymore, he’s been sick for too long,” as if that makes me feel better). Nonetheless, it was apparently good for me — I feel better today than I have done in almost a week, which might be a sign that I’m finally on the mend.

Of course, the fact that I started taking cold medication properly yesterday after days of just hoping that relaxing, hot tea and watching Star Trek The Next Generation might also have something to do with it. But I’m placing all the credit on the friendship.
