The [Friday] Papers

I had a stomach issue yesterday. I'm on the mend, but it meant that I only slept for about an hour Wednesday night. Then on Thursday morning, I joined a friend at a cafe for work and tea. But it wasn't long until I got the most irresistible urge ever to go back to bed buried under as many blankets as I could muster. Who invented blankets? I mused. Whoever it was is one of the greatest people to have ever existed. So I looked it up. And that's how the image on Thursday's (non-)column came to be.
