I took the precaution of waddling over to Health Services to confirm this was indeed a cold and not the much dreaded H1N1. (I have no chills, or aches and only slightly elevated temperature.)
So I have been laying low these past couple of days and therefore have no access to the scuttlebutt or MK grapevine.
I go to the dining room at the very end of mealtime when few guys are around and use a napkin to take silverware and handle serving spoons. I either push the elevator button with my elbow or ask some very wary soul to push it for me.
N'Sha'Allah I will be up and about on Wednesday and can bring you all up to speed on the goings on at Mother Knoll.
Till then, stay healthy!
