Contemplations of a quarantined Carl

This last week started as most second weeks usually do, with a regrettably early 1A. Midday Monday, however, my cold symptoms which I had possessed for the previous handful of days started to progress, and by Tuesday, I had accepted that at some point in the last week, I had…
