Fraiku: Booster

More puddle than person
drowsed and draped on a couch
fever builds antibodies

    Sending you virtual chicken soup and a kiss on the forehead. Unless you’re sweaty then a cool wet rag.

    Holy moly – “fever builds antibodies” – Indeed it does.

    Here’s my effort re. dealing with IT ….

    Nothing like as strong, concise, to the point, shiver-making as yours.

    Holy moly Bartholomew – few words, much meaning, again.

    Being an old person I’m due to get my fourth jab – takes me out for the best part of two weeks – but I know it to be worth it.
