Apparently I have whooping cough!


As a long-term reader of old novels, I've always felt a bit left out. All these characters would be getting german measles, and mumps, and consumption - and I, boringly, lived in a world with vaccinations, and couldn't get anything more exciting than a virus.

NOW, though...

Whooping cough!!!


So far? Not so excitingly romantic and fictional. It mainly seems to involve lots of coughing, losing your voice, and doctors sighing and giving you heaps of antibiotics.




(For my next trick, I plan to wear a long dress, participate in a taffy pull, and become a one-room-school teacher.)
