I think Mr. Needles loaned me his most recent attempt at a cold. I don't feel unwell, but I can sleep the days away. After Mr. Needles left for work, I crawled back to bed (and I will do that again today), I had a nap after lunch - a four hour nap- and then went to bed and fell asleep at 8.
Falling asleep at 8 was inconvenient because I should have been at the lecture last night. I knew that what I I needed most was to sleep. So I did.
