It's probably because your ALMOST getting another year OLDER and that's what happens to us OLD people...we get sick. Next will come the walker and we'll be pushing you through the marathon!! Heaven help us!!! (i do hope you feel better! really :) ) wont even leave a rude remark about having to do verification letters today.

But by being sick now you will certainly be healthy by then. See. And while you are waiting you can listen to NPR and learn more amazing facts.

i agree with angie. about the getting it over with now part. 13 days? no problem. maybe it's your body's way of saying "slow down, crazy woman!"

i so wish i was there to run that marathon with you.
