Our household is currently stricken with strep throat. While I'm personally not suffering from any obvious symptoms of such a thing (knock wood), both bk2w and tshuma are doing so to varying degrees. So, y'know, if you don't get a friendly lick from me upon seeing you, I don't mean any offense by it, and it's for your own protection.
I suppose it's just as well that I'm taking the second half of the fire-eating class tonight. P'raps that'll help sterilize my suspect throat a bit :-)
