Hmmm. I think I know where this is headed. But I don't think it's just a romantic notion of mine, that change and the concomitant destabilization of routine can abet whatever germs are out there. More scientifically, though, the fact that I was on campus last week getting ready may have exposed me to something. Or the fact that my resistance was down from having to get up so early and drive into the center of hell -- climatalogically speaking -- may have lowered my resistance to something Skylar brought home from school. Generally speaking, the beginning of a new school year, at whatever level, is accompanied by a spike in casually transmitted illnesses. See the University of Kansas for a dramatic example of this phenomenon.
