Feeling Better (In Some Ways More Than Others)

Well, I was sick... I was feeling like crap for a few days, coughing, hacking, sneezing, etc. Then today I could actually feel myself getting better.

Of course, now RONI is coughing, though she's insisting she was sick before I got here. There is a cold making it's way through the SF Bay area, thought I still feel just a little like typhoid mary tonight, especially since I'm feeling excellent without the use of ANY meds at all.

Roni and I had a bit of a tiff last night over my comment about her not "getting" adaptation... she thought it was a slam on her intelligence. Mind you, I never meant it that way... I know a lot of REALLY intelligent people who don't get things, and I don't think they're stupid or lack intelligence.

(aside: Jerry Springer just asked if you were involved in a bizarre love triangle, to call the show. Suddenly I heard myself in my best white trash voice saying "Jerry, actually I'm involved in a bizarre love polyhedron..." /aside)

Any way, we spoke about it, and she was just upset with the way I tried not to be all hyper-sensitive about things, which I have been lately, freely admitted. I know that a lot of people I care about have been noticing it. All I can do is try to be patient with myself and work on being a little more aware of my shortcomings.


It'll all work out. That's going to be my mantra from now on.
