How I'm Feeling

The mystery cold is still in my chest. I tried to describe to my students how I felt. I think this picture accurately summarizes my state. I feel like I'm floating.

I'm feeling restless, though. I normally go to the gym five days a week, but I'm subscribing to the "neck-up/ neck-down" theory of exercising if you have a cold. The deal is, if the cold's just sniffles and that sort of thing, you can exercise. If, however, you feel a deep chesty cold, you need to take a few days off.

As for the picture, apparently balloon-cluster flying is a sport now. That's a real dude . . . with real balloons.
