I woke up this morning croaking like a frog. The dog owners who spoke to me in Central Park will attest that this is not an overstatement.
My voice is wrecked.
After escaping for ever so long, I now appear to have succumbed to my second cold in less than a month…or maybe the first one never really left. I’m curious enough — and congested enough — to head to the doctor this time to find out more.
My croaking voice and lightheadedness made me think of Kermit the Frog of Muppets fame…which then made me think of Jason Siegel, of “How I Met Your Mother” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” who is appearing in the next Muppet Movie.
I read online that Jason cried when he met Kermit the Frog in person for the first time, which I found very touching.
If Jason met me today, I think my voice would make him cry, too.
Or if he read this blog entry, he might cry. Or laugh. Or perhaps be confused?
I need medication.
Have a nice day everyone.

After a week on the road, a different city every day,very little sleep — actually skipped sleeping one night because there was simply too much to do — I was super excited about all the things I was going to do during the next week at home.
Hanging out with Rory was at the top of the list. Sleeping was pretty high up there, too. Movies. Reading. Just being home in New York.
But by the end of my first day home, I was sick. Sore throat. Swollen glands. That little tingle in your nose that promises the worse is yet to come.
Isn’t that always the way?
When you’re on the road, running around, crazy busy, you manage to motor through. But the minute you have a moment to sit down and breathe, the germs just race right in and take up residence.
I was a little bitter at first, I admit. But then I realized, this cold didn’t change my plans that much at all.
Rory still hangs around me when I’m sick — probably shouldn’t, but he does. He’s nice like that. And I’m betting sleep is all I’ll want to do, so that’s covered. I’ll still watch movies and read, and Rory will make sure I get out and about in the city for our walks.
So, I’ll motor through this, too…just at a much slower speed.
