The exception proves the rule. Unfortunately, I realise that 'prove' in this context is used as a transitive verb:

1 archaic : to learn or find out by experience 2 a:to test the truth, validity, or genuineness of the proves the rule prove a will at probate b: to test the worth or quality of; specifically : to compare against a standard -- sometimes used with up or out c: to check the correctness of (as an arithmetic result) 3 a: to establish the existence, truth, or validity of (as by evidence or logic) prove a theorem proved in court b: to demonstrate as having a particular quality or worth.
Mega night sweat overnight, yet I probably had too few calories (I got too busy to eat. Bob wouldn't understand this concept, he has a thing called hunger which reminds him), and stayed on liquids all day. It seemed that food provoked the big ones, so this was unexpected.

As a result I am rather more stuffed up and phelmy than the last few days. I am sleeping really soundly (good), but in wet bedclothes and pillows (bad). Also a bit dehydrated. Lemongrass and ginger tea, decaf coffee and other warming-for-the-soul hot beverages to keep my fluids up today.

When I saw that Farmers seek to ban 'couch potatoes', I immediatley thought of this delightful Leunig cartoon from September in the SMH calander.

    Carolyne, hope you're getting better each day; wet bedclothes doesn't sound too nice. Glad all is well with Bob & the pics are great. Take care of yourself & keep up the fluids. LL

    Loved the Leunig cartoon - bears a similarity to a particular couch in our house!!!!
