At first, I couldn't believe it when my carrier pigeon returned with a scroll from Sah Thoth telling me he didn't believe I had the flu and he commanded I appear immediately at the workshop, interrupting my planned trip to the jousting finals. Then, my spider-sense went nuts when I was greeted by Sieur Godefroy with a worried look on his face. They were afraid I'd mishandled some rings so I spent the day under surveillance while they watched carefully for signs of metal fume fever while lecturing me endlessly on safety.

So next time, don't call in "sick" right after you worked with venomous metals or you'll have to attend a seminar on handling potentially hazardous materials.

PS Ask Arkbat The Dim for the recipe for his "special" tea [then post it here for me, I need to know what was in that tea...] he won't reveal the secret ingredient to me.
