Spring Fever

I have a very serious case of “spring fever.” The doctor is calling for immediate “blog-rest” saying this could develop into a serious case of “blog-burnout.” Oh, dear.

The doctor suggests no blogging, no emails, no computer, no newspapers or periodicals for about a week. I am going to do my best to try and follow the doctor’s orders.

Plus she (the doctor) has noticed that lately I’ve been tearing my hair out over Mayor John Moak’s political actions.

After the consultation, it was obvious that it just isn’t worth it to go bald over this administration. I just happen to like my hair, thank you very much.

So she (the doctor) stressed even more firmly that it might be a good idea to take some time off, calm down and try to get some sort of perspective on the situation. Personally, I think this is optimistic. I don’t think I’m going to have any better perspective in just one week, four or five years maybe, but just one week, no. But, I’m willing to give it a shot. It’s most definitely worth giving it a try, especially if there is any possibility that I might be able to keep my tresses.
