Project Minot, volunteers

Sick Day

Unfortunately the sniffles is doing the rounds of the volunteers here in Minot, probably because the temperature seems to be dropping by ten degrees a day. Half the base is guzzling vitamin C tablets in the hope of staving it off and the other half is dosing up on DayQuil because they tried the vitamin C and got sick any way. But don’t be fooled into thinking the pace will slow. The All Hands volunteer is well known for sucking up sickness and injury, oftentimes to the point of foolishness, and getting on with the task at hand. Noses will run. Phlegm will be coughed. Houses will be finished. The project must go on.
