I get knocked down

There is a gremlin in my throat and his name is Streptosaurus.

He's kept me in bed for three days and demanded a light diet of soup and smoothies.

He growls when I talk and lashes out when I swallow.

He keeps me KO'd for 14 hours a day.

I'm starting to forget what the world beyond my bed is like.

But God bless Monday morning, the reopening of the doctor's office, the rapid strep test, and the drive-thru pharmacy.

Let the penicillin v. Streptosaurus fight to the death begin.
