I think I have Bubonic Plague, so there will be no reason (Insert your humorous comment below…) to this mornings post. The involuntary expulsion of a midnight phlegmball resulted in a four hour wad of insomnia that had me wondering if my current health crisis was somehow attributable to “King Corn.”
