I feel pretty stupid about the whole thing. I know no one's holding it against me, but still ...
Now I'm home, and probably going back to bed. My friend Dan is coming for a visit tomorrow, and that should keep me busy, if nothing else. But any kind words are more than welcomed.
*** EDIT ***
Dan called. That pain in his tooth is actually an infection under one of his crowns. He's on antibiotics, and major painkillers, and is unfortunately not road-worthy. This means that my weekend distraction has now gone kaput.
