Clearly, I am a zombie.

I know this because I have risen from the dead.

I know this because a child told me so. It was pretty much the first thing I heard from a student when I came back to school.

“Were you sick,” he asked, “and that’s why you weren’t here?”

I confirmed the accuracy of his assessment. He nodded sagely, then continued,

“People were saying that you died. Because we’ve never had two subs in a row.”

I’ve been on my death-stool (Santani, I have never forgotten this) for approximately four days now, since Sunday. This has required an (apparently) unprecedented three consecutive days of sick leave. I believe I am the victim of a virus.

Is that a good enough excuse for not posting?
