Kathy spoke to me this afternoon, and told me that the gaming group is willing to risk getting ill by coming out and gaming with me tonight.
She told me that the reason we're going to game tonight is because I'm obviously not that sick. This due to the fact that if I were really ill, I wouldn't be working the day job from home. And she's got a point, of course.
Out of respect for the fact that my voice still sounds "torn up" and ragged, I was informed we won't be doing any roleplaying games tonight. So, board games it is.
