In 1996, Allora and I were travelling the UK. And I caught what was an epidemic level flu of either A(H1N1) or A(H3N2). I lost 30 pounds in a very short period of time. Partly because I did what seems to work for me, which is to bundle up and walk as much as I can. So I trundled around London and Canterbury, and Dover in layers under a Brooks Brother’s wool overcoat, scarf, wook cap, in the bitter cold, with the flu, with Allora as usual dragging me along. I have no idea why it is one of my fondest memories.
