I too will be going to
hell the Newly Elected Municipal Official Institute in Athens this weekend. We will all be suffering through it together. From what multiple attendees have told me, being water boarded while being sodomized by a rabid porcupine would be a more pleasant experience. We will see.
Nonetheless, the state commands that we be there with *cough* or without the flu — no excuses. I shall try not to infect you all, but again, that might be more pleasant than the lectures from what I’ve been told. In any event, I’ll be the near comatose guy in the back of the room trying not to cough my lungs up.
