Near bedtime I fell asleep in my chair and woke up choking. I continued coughing and trying to clear my throat off and on for another three hours before I got to sleep. I overslept and woke up right before I would have to run to reach the bus. (It's an hour between them now in summer.) I managed to catch the bus and bought breakfast in the city, but I didn't have time to shave. I am not comparing myself to a porcupine for nothing. Luckily my work with people is through mail or at worst telephone most days of the month, so it should be OK for once. No calls so far, which is good since my throat is still a bit raw.
