Calling in sick

I am in the merciless grip of a stomach bug so the first time that I can recall, I’m going to have to take a sick day. Try not to miss me too much.

I hope it’s not the black plague. Not much hope if you get that bug.

This is without precedent in all the years I’ve followed this blog. Please get well, we need you!

Vale, Livius! Be well. Imperative mode. As a command

Thank you for all you do for us through this blog. I’m not exaggerating that if we could bring to you what we could, you would be drowning in chicken soup.

Rise, friend, rise again and take your rightful place near the altar, under the bridge, by the temple, over the hill, on the throne (!)….oh hell. Just keep fluid in (as above), and when you feel unchained from that porcelain (or what have you) throne, and the shakes and fevers wear off; get back to all of us! Yours, G ;)

Oh dear me, the dreaded tummy bugs. I hate them.
Take care, wrap up warm in front of the fire and watch T.V. There is bound to be some good programmes on to take your mind off it. Your brilliant posts will surely be missed.

Sorry to hear that you’re feeling ill and hope that you feel better very soon. :yes:

This was foretold. It is minor and will subside now. The guilt of calling in is what you are now feeling. Now what am I supposed to read about? I may be in a panic. I think I am sick now.

Sorry to hear it. Get well soon!
And now that I’m commenting anyway I’ll take the opportunity to thank you for your wonderful work on this blog; I’ve been following it for a while now and I absolutely love it!

Please get well.
I noticed you put this under the category of
“Ex Cathedra” – “from the seat” or “from the chair”. Is this an indication of what is ailing you? It congers up visions of you enthroned upon a porcelain stool dispatching all in haste.

Sorry to hear the news! Why do I suspect we’ll be seeing more medical and porcelain posts in the future? :) Get better!

Take care of yourself for as long as you need. We will miss you, but history will still be there when you feel better. i wou bring you tea and run to the drugstore for you if I could.

So sorry to hear you are unwell. I was ill in early December and the “stomach bug” this year seems to hang on. Take good care of yourself.

Things like that are nasty :-(
You have my sympathy!

Don’t worry about us, we’ll manage – if barely ;-)

Hope the flu ebbs sooner rather than later and that you are once-again “flush” with good health.

Your daily posts are a tonic for my morning grumpiness.

We most definitely miss you and our daily dose of history. I hope you feel better soon!

Take care of yourself with plenty of rest and hydration. However long it takes for you to feel better please use to rest. Will miss your writing in the meantime, but look forward to whatever you have in store for your return.

Hang in there!

Although I will miss your daily dose of enlightenment and entertainment, I can hardly begrudge you a sick day. Get well soon

2016-01-26 20:39:26

I do hope you are feeling better tomorrow dear. I’ve found this blog to be most entertaining and informative. If you have a cat just grab it and make a pot of tea and hunker down to wait it out. I’m sending all the energy I can to you.
