406. brain-eating amoebas

keaton said, maybe your sickness is from brain-eating amoebas. i just heard about them on cnn. once you get them, there is no stopping them. quick death is a certainty.
i said, i thought you stopped watching cnn because of fear news stories like these killer amoebas?
keaton said, i know. can’t help myself. but seriously, suppose it is that?
i said, nah, i have some kind of flu, that’s all.
she said, well, if it’s just the same to you, would you take care of adding that software to my pc now, you know, on the off chance that you’ve got the amoebas and don’t have much longer.
i thought for a moment.
then i said, sure, no problem. and you know what to do with my regret jar (see #405) right?
she said, yup. you’re the best honey.

and she took off to work rather content.

i suppose then i'll need to suspend my weekly skinny dipping at cranelegs pond (although i should probably suspend the weekly operation just on general principle).
