The Duck of Minerva

The Duck Quacks at Twilight


July 19, 2009

The weather favors us today, so much so that the dog refuses to come inside. It is 81 degrees and dry.

I have a beautiful new bike, which I have ridden only a few times. The wife and kid are out of town.

And yet my flu-like illness lingers. Not enough that I feel actively sick, but with sufficient tenacity that I cannot engage in strenuous activity.

In other words: teh suck.
