It's Still Hanging On

Even after a night of sleep uninterrupted by clingy cats, my cold is worse today and I worked from home today smothered in Vicks and gargling salt water. Nice way to celebrate spring, dang it.

The next box was shipped to Bananas today and coincidentally, she picked up the last one today. It's a little like being in a time warp--our packages are about a week ahead of her, and her letters back with what worked/what doesn't/what she'd like more of are about 3 weeks behind, so the fourth package made adjustments from the first package--all very confusing if you think about it too long, or while drinking a white chocolate martini.

And in token of our honorary trail names, Boris & Natasha, a line from season 3 of Rocky & Bullwinkle that made me laugh out loud:

"Now there's something you don't see everyday, Edgar."
"What's that, Chauncey?"
"A squirrel in Congress."
"Oh I don't know, Chauncey. It was just a matter of time."
"How's that?"
"They've had so many nuts in Congress, a squirrel was bound to show up some day."

Ha! It could be the election year, or the cold medicine. Either way--I found it hysterical. And now I'm off to take a large dose of Nyquil & go to bed.
