PS – This is not a comprehensive list and is not in any way intended to a Methods-quality description of our actions. I know some of you, being science heads, will naturally notice and feel almost compelled to mention any holes in my plan. No need to point out any half-completed actions I forgot to mention.

PPS – I didn’t mention “blow nose,” but that’s what I’ve been doing every 30 seconds or so all morning. I’ve never had allergies before, but this summer I’ll wake up and spend the entire morning sneezing and blowing my nose. Some days are worse than others. Today is a Very Bad Day, possibly an entire Kleenex box day. When I get a real doctor (whenever that may be), I should get allergy testing. This is pretty miserable.
