Spreading beneficial diseases to the people


I have been running some kind of weird, low grade cold for a few days. My throat is scratchy and I'm run down, but there's not a great deal more to it than that.

So I came to work.

And I am very, very tired.

I am sitting here at the front desk of the library on by no means a quiet day. My front desk partner, being a self-involved manager, has abandoned me, but I don't mind that as it's usually less stressful for me to be alone at the front desk. If things get hectic I just step it up. And if they don't, well, it's oddly cozy.

Yes, cozy. 

I have been at the library for many decades now. My level of self possession with the public has grown large indeed. Get me a toasty blanket, and a warm drink, and sure, I can nurse my quiet illness here, right in front of a thousand library goers. Usually I stay home sick from work, so as not to spread disease, but I think this ailment won't kill anyone. 

It might just mellow everyone out. 

In fact, this might just be what everyone needs right now. Everyone just needs to mellow out.

So look for my calming, only slightly miserable disease to come your way soon. I'm spreading it in your direction. Aye, I'm spreading it everywhere!

It's going to save the world.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
