Today I had a carpenter put in an extra level of wood in my closet to accommodate more stuff. Over the course of the quarantine I’ve tried to throw away so many things, but some very nice boxes of my action figures I still can’t get myself to dispose of just yet. I also dove into some of the old bills and bank statements that accumulated through the years and was able to throw many of them. I will buy a paper shredder once the risk of dying in the mall completely disappears.

As I was fixing some of my favorite action figure boxes which were super dusty I sneezed a series of violent sneezes and immediately ran to take in an oral antihistamine and sprayed my nostrils with nasal steroids. I can’t let any allergic rhinitis attack leave a trace, otherwise hospital screeners will refer me to undergo all kinds of COVID screening tests or require a lengthy quarantine.

Viber notified me that there was a Zoom meeting about to start, this time the regular Harrison’s Hour of our trainee residents. During Harrison’s Hour I am nothing but a hidden spectator, so I multitask by going on the elliptical while listening to topics that are sometimes now far beyond my comprehension. I was thirty minutes into the exercise when suddenly the moderator said “I see that we have an oncologist in attendance today… Dr. Special Agent Fox Mulder would you like to give your input and tell us what you think of this case? Do you think malignancy is a consideration in this patient with a fever of unknown origin?”

I would have said thank you for that wonderful question to buy me some time but I was already too dyspneic.
