The mind does some pretty strange things when the body isn't feeling well.
I've been fighting off some kind of cold-fever thing, and when I'm not fast asleep, I've been having very odd thoughts, indeed.
I've been trying to get some knitting done, but have been making all sorts of stupid mistakes, and have been doing an awful lot of un-knitting.
This makes me think of Penelope, wife of Odysseus. Which makes me wonder how Robb might be like Odysseus.
The fact that Robb was out cycling and presumably having adventures while I was moping around at home seemed to fit with the stories about Odysseus. As did the fact that unlike many men, Robb doesn't act like a pig around strong women.
Jeepers! I'm not even taking cold medications!
