My dad suddenly called me today, he was in the neighboring town, visiting his older sister. Yes, she is my aunt, but I have met her like once before in my life. I don't see him every year either, not nearly. So I went there today. She is like 85+, ten years older than him. They don't keel over easily, these people. He seemed much the same as I remember him, and acted much the same too, except he had a few lapses of speech this time. Like presenting me as his brother. Admittedly he corrected himself before I needed to. And frankly, that is close to how I feel too.
Apart from all that, I wonder if I may be coming down with the flu. Sore throat, dry eyes and headache, but no fever so far. We shall have to wait and see.
