Haiku Ode to Modern Pharmaceuticals

Oh shiny capsules,
Containing wondrous relief--

I have a sinus infection. Isn't that awesome?!?

Let me 'splain; I have been feeling like a truck ran over me for a week and a half. I've had constant sinus pressure and headaches that retreat only briefly with aspirin and decongestant, major exhaustion, barely dragging myself through the days... and it just today finally occurred to me (and not until I woke up with a mild fever) that, hey, maybe there's something legitimately wrong with me. Am genius, thank you.

So thank God for antibiotics, I say. Supergerm breeders or not, they sure come in handy sometimes. Hopefully they will also lead to more frequent posting, since the aforementioned exhaustion was cutting back severely on my output.

Have also postulated that symptoms may have had an affect on my perception of Casino gaming floors as seventh circle of hell. Also, that flying yesterday probably did not help.

I'd just like to provide independent confirmation of your observations regarding Las Vegas. They were not too much more pleasant minus the sinus infection.

I'm glad you went to Vegas, because now I don't have to.

Sinus infections are...horrible! When they're bad, antibiotics are like magic. I'm glad you got a scrip.
