I guess it was inevitable.

My body was run down from all the Turkey Day activities.

The fall germ machine is already running rampant.

Consequence: I now have a case of the creeping crud.

It’s not enough to keep me from my desk, of course. Just enough to make me feel vaguely miserable — and a bit fuzzy in the brain.

I’m hopeful that this will be my one and only creeping crud episode this entire season. Wouldn’t that be nice if I could look forward to a germ-free winter?

Yeah, right.
