The O'Brien ...

... is a little under the weather. Here is some important footage in lieu of her usual brilliance.

It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature. Wouldn't be great if the frog suddenly puffed up and swallowed the tormentor with one big "GULP".

Get well soon.

BTW, does anyone know the origin of "Under the Weather"? Seems to me we're either "In the weather" or "Out of the weather." Of course that is likely attributable to my drug addled brain.

Erin, feel better. Maybe get a humidifier up and running in your house. It can really help in these Great Lakes winters we have, with this one working extra hard be be sure it doesn't go unnoticed.

RJ, I *think* the phrase is akin to that image of the cloud standing over one's head no matter where one goes whilst everyone else moves about in sunshine and flowers.

"Weather" (the kind that elicits this phrase and that image) comes with drops in barometric pressure, and some people react quite powerfully negatively to that reality whether in attitude, sinus-tude or arthritic joint-itude.
