On Being a Shut-In

March 31st, 2006 · No Comments

I have been under a self-imposed pseudo-quarantine (plus hyphenation-fest) for the last three days as I fight tooth and nail to get over this cold.

Not once have I stepped foot out of my apartment.  Not even into the hallway.

Fortunately I remembered to grab my laptop before I left work on Monday, and have been able to take care of my duties from home.  Perhaps more effectively than usual, what with my swanky dual 19″ LCDs.  Yum.

Planning to vanquish the foul demons that afflict my system tonight, I find myself thinking strangely about tomorrow.  Thoughts like: oh, yeah, I have a car!  Will it still be out there?  On what part of the street did I park it?

I don’t even remember where I parked my car. 

During the last three days the thought of my car did not even enter my mind.  Out of sight, out of something.

I don’t know what the temperature is like outside.  It has been nice and toasty in here, but it could be 35 degrees outside.  All I am sure of is that when I open the window it is colder out there than it is in here.

Well, I have once more kept myself up much later than I ought.  Time to sleep, and see if I can answer some of these burning questions tomorrow.  I am excited to explore… THE OUTSIDE!
