Thanks to the readers who emailed words of comfort (and gentle mockery). I am a bit better now. Because I spent hours and hours wrapped up in bed I was able to get in early to work and stay until late today.
Just goes to show: if you really want to be a macho workaholic, you don’t slave on through an illness; you rest until you’re better, and then you overwork.
Oh Damian, don’t be silly… I *never* thought you were macho.
