the 24 hr. G.I. menu

Pick one or more from each category:
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • headache
  • fever
Bug had his version of this Wednesday night and was chipper and rearing to go, although not hungry, on Thursday. CD succumbed Saturday afternoon after his bike ride with Pook. Monday morning CD was still not well enough to go to work when first I had symptoms and then Pook followed soon after.

My neighbors thankfully entertained the now healthy and bouncing Bug for most of the day, including feeding him lunch. The rest of us were a miserable mess. We introduced the metaphor to Pook, "sick as a dog". Why a dog? What's the origin of that?

And yet, here we are Tuesday morning, weak but back on our feet.
