I feel like I have a golfball lodged in my throat. Hurts to swallow. Hurts to laugh. Don't make me laugh.

"I'm staying home today. My lymph nodes are swollen."



"Have you been kissing anyone?"


"Maybe you have mono."

"I'm pretty sure I don't have mono, Dad."

"But you can get it from kissing someone."

"Then it is very unlikely that I have mono."

Unless it's something you can also catch from having your neck breathed on every morning on a packed streetcar.

Well, M, when you get back and if you haven't fully recovered, there will be plenty of chicken soup left for us to share :)
