The Agony and ... Well, the Agony

WE MUST APOLOGIZE for not having posted any new blog entries over the last five days. However, we can assure you that for the most part, we were not having all that much fun during this little break of ours. Oh no. Rather, we were in agonizing pain for much of it.

For with the coming of spring comes our annual Bout With Sinus Troubles, and along with that came a particularly bad cold. As such, we suffered through awful aches and pains and hardly ate; and we spent most of our free time sneezing, sniffling, and praying for God to somehow deliver us from this malady. After a couple of days of it, we didn't care how He did it, either. If He would have caused a jackhammer bit to fly off and drive into our forehead, we would have thanked Him for relieving the awful pressure.

That said, we are doing a bit better now, although posting will be rather light for the next few days. However, we can assure you that we'll be back in action soon -- provided we don't suffer a relapse of that pounding, aching, miserable, incapacitating pain.

NOTE: We just checked our voice mail to find a message from Simon From Jersey. A building in his apartment complex caught fire last night, and his car was apparently within spitting distance of the blaze. We are still waiting to hear the fate of the car -- but we must say that in comparison, we find our sinus troubles far more bearable.

Ah -- excrutiating sinus pain. Been there. It would also explain the delirium you must have been in when you found yourself enjoying listening to Avril Lavigne.

I kid because I love...

God, Geoff; if I ever actually experience the DTs, I want the delirium to be "wicked intense," as we say up here in New Hampshire. Finding out that I happen to like a particular pop musician's current radio hit would not, in my book, count as being wicked intense.

That said, the sinus pain hurt. It hurt so bad.
