Yes

I am unpleasantly speckled tonight -- a rather common side effect, I have discovered, of this amoxycillin antibiotic that I've been on all week. I feel, and look, as if I fell asleep naked in a meadow full of mosquitoes.

I said yes to the internship today. I have seriously mixed feelings about it. People come and go all day to my little office, tis true, but they don't stay. They don't work beside me and they certainly don't wait expectantly for me to give them work to do.

I hope this all works out. And I am never going to take that damned amoxycillin again -- I am scritching like a backwoods hound-dog tonight.

Good luck with the intern and with your health.

Geez, ECD, this sounds like an allergic reaction to me! Be careful, and I am glad you are beginning to feel better.

And good luck with the internship. If I am understanding correctly you will now have an intern? If so, I am sure you will be a fine mentor...you already have practice with your school buddy.

Gosh ECD I sure hope you can shake this bug soon.
Perhaps this offer has come for a reason and will in the end provide you with some much needed free time.

Chase, Rebecca and Janice:

Thank you all for your kind words. I am slightly less speckly today and not so topically tormented. I mainly shared those details because amoxicyllin is such a common antibiotic and I wanted to sound a warning.

Freaky. But hey if you get bored in your recovery you can play connect the dots. :)

Best of luck with your intern!
