July: From good to bad to better

I missed most of July.

I remember it coming in and I remember the ending, but all that middle stuff is totally lost on me.

The reason?

It started with a tickle.

I can pinpoint it to the minute. I can't tell you why I checked my watch but I did.

2:01 p.m. Tuesday, July 17 my nose tickled and I looked at my watch. By nightfall, my nose was stopped up and the next morning I felt the crud creeping into my chest.
