Luckily Frank boo booed when he told me he would be away today, so I did have jin shin. I was ecsdtatic as I'm so sick from the fumes. I told him about the bbq fume thing, adding that I can't understand why an environmentalist would use charcoal, given the environmental devastation the making of briquettes for the (largely American) market causes. He said not everyone knows about that. He had a bbq story of his own that he related. I can't remember the details but the salient points are these: there was an airplane crash and a couple of people were killed. The bodies were horribly burned. Frank had to stay with the burned bodies until the coroner arrived. After that, it was years before he could be near anything barbecued.
I usually have jin shin at 9 on Mondays, and I had it at 2:30 today so my day is bizarre now. It feels like early afternoon but it's past 6pm. With a bit of luck my pounding headache will ease up as Frank said.
