This last week, I played in our library staff concert. It went pretty well, but my throat was super dry, so I wasn’t able to play as well as I normally do. I thought it was just the weather, but the next morning my throat was really sore. As the day progressed, it turned into the full-fledged flu, complete with fever, chills, body aches, etc.
I’m still fighting it off, despite sleeping most of the weekend, and I really need to get better pronto because I fly out to ALA Midwinter on Thursday night! Speaking of which, who is going?
I also find it funny that I’ve been reading Spillover all week, which is about diseases that jump from animals to humans, and then I get the flu. Way to illustrate the book, body!
Hoping to finish:
Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic by David Quammen — loving this book, but it’s a beast. It’s very slow going and long, densely packed with information.
Dr. Frankenstein’s Daughters by Suzanne Weyn
Hysteria by Megan Miranda
