Well, Man Flu is definitely receding... only to be overtaken by a bad back, brought on by coughing too much. This has to be the longest run of bad health stuff that I have ever had the misfortune to suffer. But enough about me, how about you guys? Everyone at work seems to be snuffling or coughing o ...

"OK, enough of the man flu, already", I here you cry. But listen, it"s good news... the Man Flu era is passing. Seriously, I"ve only had one bad coughing fit this morning, and my head doesn"t feel like a steel bucket filled with bolts that has an elephant tap dancing on top of it ...
