And no, the two have nothing to do with one another. The tremendous tissue usage is a result of a nasty cold/cough/sore throat that struck me a week ago. We’ve purchased three new boxes of tissues and a bulk load of tissue pocket packs this week. I lost my voice completely for two days and have been croaking a little more effectively each day, but I still sound like I’ve been gargling with broken glass.
As for HH (His holiness), the closest I came was being at work half a block away. Though there was an opportunity to get a ticket to attend his address at the General Assembly, I was scheduled for meetings at both the time the tickets were available and when he was speaking. So like most people, my only papal experience is a mediated one.
