Why I've Been AWOL

It has been more than my customary maximum of five days without a blog post,but I think I have a pretty good excuse.

Sunday,I was going to drive over to school to run off a test I was going to give the next day. On my way out, I sideswiped my neighbors car. I stopped of course. When I got out of the car, I could barely walk. My neighbor insisted I sit on his step while he called an ambulance. I told him he didn't need that but he very wisely ignored me. There were no accident-related problems that made the ambulance necessary. I was just very feverish and weak and confused.

I just got out of the hospital today. My database class never took their third test.Exams start tomorrow, and I made up one that a colleague is going to proctor for me tomorrow.

My nurse told me not to go to work at all tomorrow and Friday.I told her that I couldn't promise her that,since there were exams to be given and these were very time critical. She gave me a look. The kind of look mothers give teenagers. But I did promise her I would exert as little effort as possible, and if anyone asked me to do anything extra during those days I would say "I'm not even supposed to be here."

So in the interest of keeping my promise to exert minimum effort,I am going to wrap up and give more details later.

Well,one detail can't wait. Elle was an angel during my stay. As she always is.
