Over dinner tonight I appointed Gailor in charge of Dining@Large when (notice I say when and not if) I get the stomach flu. Everybody but me in Baltimore has the stomach flu.
I'm obsessed with this. I've never missed a day's post since I started April 18, 2007, even through various illnesses. But I've never had to post during a serious stomach bug. ...
Now, though, I'm getting paranoid. Everyone around me -- although not my immediate family -- is about to get the stomach flu or is just getting over it. (I know, I know. Technically it's not the flu. But it involves a lot of distressing gastrostuff.)
Anyway, I tried to persuade Gailor she would really enjoy being a guest blogger for three to seven days, with friendly commenters telling her what an idiot she is, but all she kept saying was, "I don't want to. I'm on vacation."
Not to worry, I think I can persuade her.
