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.
