My discussions with Dr. Fourway are progressing splendidly. In the meantime it seems I've caught this infernal New Babbage Cough. I suspect tonight's gathering at Novem will turn into an impromptu clinic. I've asked Ash to retreive my satchel. I should probably stay in Babbage a few days to see how this malady progresses...and to avoid spreading this outbreak to the other sims.
In the meantime I've found a steady flow of tea is soothing for the throat and sinuses. I can't say the same for some poor fool who made absinthe pie as a folk remedy.
