Sick leave: Requiem

Day 87. 79 pages, 33,429 words.

Feeling better and I went back to work today after a solid day’s rest with only occasional headaches (unwelcome) and bouncing-on from children (more welcome). Wump is off school for autumn holiday which is nice.

So a solid day of catch-up sleep and a thorough emptying of my digestive backlog (you’re welcome), and all is well with the world.

Well … aside from missing a day of work and having a few fires to put out (or at least dance around) today, all was well. But that’s fairly standard.

Weekend approaching. Tonight we’re off to watch a theatre adaptation of Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness which should be fascinating. I hope I won’t lose too much SAN. Then tomorrow we have the traditional Palokas family grill event where I fully intend to repack the remains of my colon (you’re welcome, again).

In fact…

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
