From the title you might assume that Bugbears are blessed with a mighty constitution. Well your assumption would wrong. What a Bugbear usually has is a wee streak of stubbornness about 5 leagues wide. Consequently, I generally go to work in spite of a variety of aches, pains, twitches, and sniffles. I know it's politically incorrect to do so but generally you've already spent time infecting your workplace by the time you notice you're ill.
There are two things that will keep me home though. Nausea and diarrhea. On Tuesday I had the former and on Wednesday I stayed home with the latter. The last time I stayed home I had mononucleosis and I missed a week and a half of work and then worked half days for another week.
This week also heralds another date. I went on my first date with Mrs. Bugbear just about this time 6 years ago. Now we have two daughters, a dog, a cat and a house in the country. All I need is a truck for complete happiness!
