Don't fall ill on a Sunday



The feet feel like they’re on fire. When stretched as far as they’ll go, the weary, aching legs find temporary respite. Arms are limp and the lifeless hands are barely able to form a firm fist. The back hurts and the head throbs. But, it’s on your breath and on the eyelids that you sense the raging fever the most. Sleep doesn’t come easily and, so, you toss and turn, hoping to find a comfortable position that may help it on its way. But, comfort usually comes from stillness of body and/or mind, neither of which seem easy to find when you’re burning up. Strange images and thoughts and ideas flood your head as you float in and out of the mildly delirious state…
