Yes I'm going to gripe. I'm going to whine, piss and moan.
I've been doing pretty much noithing but shivering, sweating, coughing, blowing my nose and sleeping since Tuesday night.
I called in sick Wednesday and Thursday. Friday I woke up and decided I could go to work. By the time I got on the El headed downtown, I knew I'd made a horrible miscalculation. I was back home and asleep by noon.

My jacket, plaston, knickers and lame are hung on the back of my bedroom door. My weapons stand in the corner, sheathed in PVC. My bag is empty except for a clean t-shirt.
Everything is ready.
Everything except me.
I miss the club. I miss my opponents, classmates and coaches. I miss the chats between bouts. I miss the fencing.

I woke up this morning feeling better, but not well enough for a workout. My body needs more rest, so more rest it will get.
Monday night, I better be back at FAP.

    Sleep. Dream about fencing. When you're well enough, go back. They will be there asking where you've been and how you are.

    Thanks guys.
    I consoled myself with the FIE youtube channel today. Focused on distance and learned some things.
    I think there's light at the end of the tunnel. I should be at the club for class on Monday. Finally. It's only been a week, but I'm itching to get stabby.
