It’s day three of my cold and I feel physically wretched. You can tell I am a man: I log the duration in days of my ailments as if they were of national historic significance! But it only makes me admire my wife more and more. In the last two months she has physically endured so much that the mighty man-cold looks even more pathetic than it does when Annie is in full health. All the same, I do feel very sick and a bit sorry for myself.
