Nothing Worse...

There's nothing worse than feeling sick, particularly with a sore throat. Add to that, having to speak with that sore throat. And then, add to that, travel, then you have my predicament. I woke up this morning feeling bad, and it hasn't gotten better. Right now, I'm in Houston and I'll be speaking about African American fraternal organizations in about six hours. What you do is simply gut it out. There's nothing else you can do. I remember being so sick at one event that I threw up before the lecture and then threw up after it. But I pride myself on being a professional, so my hosts didn't know a thing. Health is one of the wild cards when you lecture, and right now, I've pulled a joker.
