It would have been nicer if I didn’t have this damn cold while my friend Olaf was here. I really haven’t been very high energy between all the coughing and phlegm purging. Still, it was nice having him here. Sometimes it is great just to hang out with a good friend, catch up on things, watch some TV together and share a few silly jokes. Olaf just left to go back to Germany, and I hope he has enjoyed his low-key time here with me as I have with him. We can save the all night dance parties and crazy gay nightlife for another time when I won’t be at risk of starting an outbreak.
