Few days ago I came down with the Flu and had to cancel all my bookings for Pittsburgh. I was laid-flat, all fever-ish, confined to my bed all day.
Some of the photographers were happy about the 24 hour notice and gladly re-booked with me for early April... others... well... lets just say others were not 'shiny happy people holding hands'.
Matt wrote me an email... asking me how I was feeling. Explained to him that my temperature was skyrocketing and it was difficult to keep food down (yet, of course, more descriptive and gory-like.... because I was writhing in pain and hoping for a virtual sympathy hug)...... To which he replied,
"Wow.....that is basically terrible - but you will look great by the time we go to Florida, keep me posted I love you ........"
That would be Matt for you... my Virtual Love Muffin!
Took five days.... but I am almost back to feeling normal again. Temperature is back to where it should be, my body no longer feels like it needs an exorcism. I am now thriving on a diet that consists of nothing but oyster crackers and chicken-broth (I am too scared to eat anything else - nothing will stay in my body) - I have lost almost twelve pounds. So in a way, Matt did find the cloud's silver lining.... It is true, once I tone-up at the gym - I will look really good for Florida next week.
