A crust of blood on the driven snow

I continue to lose blood through expectoration and snot; never quite a nosebleed, but too much to ignore. A vicious cough, but only a hint of clots.

Since there is little chance that I have the Consumption, or a similarly infectious problem, I will admit that I am enjoying the experience. I have always loathed biology and the non-ecstatic bits of mammalian life.

Of the filthy petri dish that is life as we know it, I've had the best of times. The revenge of the flesh as a wicked cough and minor amounts of blood seems acceptable.
