I am sorry, but I will not be partipating this week. I had to take a sick leave and I will extend it to my participation of Daffynition. I lost way too much hair over the last two years. I am now wearing a winter hat in class when teaching; otherwise, I am catching a cold every time I am without it. I often end up with no energy because of a severe fever; last time I paid the doctor a visit, he told me my temperature was 98.7 degrees Fahrenheit, or 37,05 degrees Celcius. It was an awful experience to feel so hot and not knowing how to cure myself. I just hope it s nothing serious. See you around if I ever get better.

@agagug, are you a man or a mouse? Show some valetude, man! Pull yourself together, flex your muscles, look in the mirror and say, I am a big, strong valetudinarian! Believe it! 
 
Valetudinarian: bold, strong fellow/woman.

I am no woman indeed, therefore not gifted of the essential stamina sustaining a healthy life. I caught a what we call here a: "mans cold". Along with fibromyalgia and fear of heights... Poor old me, I am six foot five.

@agagug, I am beginning to believe you are serious, in which case, I wish you all the valetudinism in the world.

A valetudinarian is obviously a person who believes that valets should have an arrogant attitude towards people who wish to check plebian automobiles (i.e., the cars that ordinary people drive).

@cunnliffe Serious? I need to check in the dictionary for that word, but we are not allowed to use one in a Daffynition contest... Anyway, I could not even lift one in my condition. I went to the doctor this morning showing him how I could easily lift my right arm above my head yesterday and how much I am alarmed today that I cannot even lift it passed my shoulder. Now, my doctor is sending me to the Shrink. Poor old me... Would that one be able to help me about my height issue?

@agagug, I agree, you are too big. Ask your shrink to shrink you.
