Stir crazy. That’s what most people get when they’re stuck at home for days on end.
Well, in this past week I’ve travelled to northern Indiana, Chicago, Indianapolis, and Kokomo. I’ve visited with friends, went to cool museums, and ate in fantastic restaurants. As I write this, I’m surrounded by a plethora of old books about Quakerism and all the microfilm I could process in a year (my ideal location). But I’m a poster child for stir crazy.
Why, might you ask? Well, I’ve had a pretty bad cold, complete with a stuffy nose and the complementary elephant sitting on my chest. And, being sick, my two newest and favorite hobbies were off the table: running and drinking.
Today, however, I’m finally shaking the last bits of lethargy and clearing out the congestion. I think that’s cause for a celebration.
