Okay, I’ve misled you. I’ve no flash fiction tale for you this time.
It’s just me, Kate Loveton, sneezing at the computer screen and hoping I’m not sending my germs over the internet.
I wanted to quickly drop in and say AH-CHOO!
Well, that and hello… and to admit to all of you that I haven’t felt much like blogging the last few days. Naps? Oh yeah, I’ve felt like napping a lot. And sending my poor husband out in search of Starbucks’ vanilla bean frappuccinos with the whiny plea, “But they make my throat feel so much better…”
The man is a saint. And I’ve gained a pound, probably, from all those cool, icy, and wonderful milky concoctions. Ah, but I digress…
Back on point, instead of my usual healthy appearance –
I’m afraid I’m looking like this –
Quite a difference, huh? Are you feeling sorry for me yet?
Okay, so I don’t really look like Marilyn Monroe. I’ll do anything for a bit of sympathy when I’m feeling unwell. I’m a sympathy hound. Bassets got nuthin’ on me!
See how little pride I’ve got left? I’m now using photos of cute dogs to get sympathy.
Anyway, my friends, I wanted to thank all of you for the nice responses to my last story, The Visit, and to apologize for my tardiness in responding to your gracious comments. I hope to get caught up this weekend.
There is one thing that’s been making life bearable for me while enduring this cold – aside from the wonderful frappuccinos and my wonderful husband – and that would be my baseball team, the Baltimore Orioles, who are having one of their best seasons in quite a long time. So I’m coming out of the closet and giving you a glimpse of the real Kate Loveton (minus cold), dressed in her dorky Orioles apparel. (Dig the cool ‘Orioles Orange‘ sunglasses… have I got class or what?)
Now…if only someone would introduce me to Nelson Cruz…
Go Orioles! As for me, time for another nap. 🙂 Just make sure to wake me in time for tonight’s game, okay?
