Yes. This picture had so much potential with the setting sun's rays adorning that one goose. But you see on the right that the other goose has been decapitated, thanks to the so-called photographer's inability to center the subjects. (Truth be told, I was centering the main goose and the impressive sun light - I didn't even see the headless goose to the right.)
Speaking of being off-center and feeling as though only decapitation will bring relief, I turn now to the subject of my health, or rather my sickness.
For the first time in years, I woke up yesterday truly sick. All day long I watched the thermometer rise to new heights of fever, and I bent over double in pain as my chest took a pitch fork to my lungs and a blow torch to my throat every time I tried to inhale. Then, when I was feeling my worst, CB Baby Sister and I had to play basketball for a fundraiser at the high school. You know, the normal thing you'd do when you're deathly ill.
(BTW - CB Baby Sister, who scored over 1,000 points in her high school basketball career, did exceptionally well at this event. CBW and her raging fever and inability to see, much less inhale, almost scored a bucket for the opposing team.)
Rather than focus on my ailments, though, I'd like to hear what a healthy person is doing this weekend.
Tell me what it is you're going to do--or even better what you'd like to do.
In the meantime, I will be ten toes up underneath blankets, wrapped up like a cigar.
Have a great, bronchitis- and fever-free Saturday.
