This ongoing illness has finally snapped into a pattern I've seen before, and I didn't like it much then:

The medical profession's answer to my ongoing cough is a nasty lozenge seemingly made from the bowls in which Chia Pets are grown, which, I am told, will actually increase the level of coughing. It is a measure of how bad things are that I accepted this at face value.

This particular version of the ailment dates back to 2001; it began during a 4444-mile (literally) road trip, and persisted long after I'd left the driver's seat.   The general feeling is that of having one's lungs filled with cotton candy, and not a good flavor of cotton candy either.

I am the very model of a modern minor generalist

I've been writing online for half my life, taking time out for meals of course, and in all that time, it has never occurred to me that someone might actually want to read something I'd written.

My range of interests may be fairly characterized as a thousand miles wide and about three-eighths of an inch deep.  And if you ever thought it was tricky explaining your devotion to pony to family members -- well, imagine what it's like when all those family members are younger than you are.
