Let me explain why this is a good thing. My beloved, pictured above on a movie set a few years ago, has recently returned from two dreary months on location. He was housed, along with some very big stars in a hotel that shared a parking lot with Walmart. The preferred restaurant in town was called, The Cracker Barrel, and was decorated with a prodigious collection of snow globes… During our sporadic and brief phone calls he would relate stories that would make me exclaim, “Just come home!” The last phone call was accompanied by sneezing and coughing, as he had been caught (along with everybody on the crew) in a torrential downpour, unaware of its approach. He returned two days later. May I say that as his plane was touching down at LAX the phrase that kept repeating, over and over, in my mind was: by this time tomorrow I will have a cold. If you don’t see me around for the next couple of days just know that my fondest wish has come true. Ciao and gesundheit 😉 .

Hallelujah for true love reunited! Look! I even have to break out that little heart emoticon: <3 hehehe Let love rule!
(And on a sadder note, dear me, Cracker Barrel. Take a look at this little gem from Wikipedia:
During the 1990s, the company was the subject of controversy for its official stance against gay and lesbian employees and for discriminatory practices against African American and female employees. The company's treatment of minority customers was also criticized; patrons complained of racially segregated seating and service quality. Following an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice and the implementation of non-discrimination policies, the company has focused on improving minority representation and civic involvement, particularly in the black community. Company shareholders added sexual orientation to the company's non-discrimination policy in 2002.)
Congratulations on the cold and the homecoming… though I must say if the other half keeps smoking that way then a respiratory tract infections would seem inevitable.

Way to take lemons and make lemonade!
that’s such a beautiful (missing him) and pragmatic (that cold will be mine) missive via the interweb.
This is truly excellent.
