Leave of absence

And while on that, why do people talk of “leave of absence”? Tautology, no? Anyway — two ODIs in three days for the team; for me, a quick trip to Kerala (Calicut, specifically) in the offing. Leaving about now, back Monday night, back here Tuesday morning. Will leave you with a blog a friend pointed out to me on Twitter yesterday, and with a piece that is all kinds of fun.
