Wow, Christmas mega-vacation is about over. Maybe.
Turns out D has, just this morning, contacted the stomach flu his mother had at the end of last week. The same sickness his cousin had a few days before that. Unfortunately, we were supposed to get on a little ol’ airplane today and fly back to Germany.
Murphy’s law of sickness? I called the company’s travel department in Germany this morning (afternoon there) and explained the situation – right now it’s looking like there aren’t any flights available until next Tuesday. Yep, a week from now. The only good thing about it being so far from now is that if, by chance, I catch the sickness too, we’ll both be recovered by then. Hmm.
Right now the poor guy is covered in blankets and asleep on the couch.
