Sick

I came down sick yesterday.  I should have been writing papers and editing proposals and doing nice scholarly things. 

Instead, I lay on my bed, in a half state of consciousness for 10 hours before my roommate came home and we chatted for a few minutes before I slept again.  I think the cat even started wondering how I could compete with him for number of hours slept in a day. 

Do you know what I found is impossible to do while sick? 

Think! 

But you know what I did do?  I watched hours of mindless TV and held a baby and sat lazily on the couch and watched Pitt win over UNC.  There's something delightful about occasional mindlessness. 

But I really do hope my brain returns with my appetite.
