Joe Umland
It's a very exclusive institution.

Joe could only shrug slightly in response to the comment that his head was probably not the only thing which hurt. “Pulled something in m’back,” he conceded.

He put up a hand to protectively cover his badge when he noticed her looking at it, perceiving a threat to it in her tone. Had to keep that. Both of the others had had one. “It’s too late for that,” he observed. “I’ve been to two classes. It’s just this headache, and m’back - I can think.” There was a bridge between those thoughts, he was sure, something tying how he could not presently think to his back and head but he would be able to think in his later classes, but it was hazy and vague, and he didn’t even really want to keep fighting her on this. He actually wanted to do as he was told and go to sleep, as he’d been hovering on the edge of falling asleep sitting up all day. Hours was...a lot of time, though. Maybe half an hour wouldn’t do any harm.

“I want to go to sleep,” he said, allowing himself to slump - or at least making the decision to slightly control his slump instead of waiting until it became wholly involuntary on his part. “I’ll sleep through lunch, ok? Just wake me up in about half an hour, ok? Please? I gotta go to Potions. I'm saving my E f-for Transfiguration.”

OOC: Feel free to write/assume Joe accepted medicine after vague soothing noises if not outright lies.

    Oh good. She had a little soldier on her hands, who wanted to keep on trooping. She could overlook the borderline rudeness in his tone, given that she doubted he was functioning anywhere near normal... more

        She was glad she hadn’t confirmed his identity using his full name, because that meant she still had it up her sleeve, said in reproving tones, to wield if he continued to be difficult. Which he... more

            • Some hours earlier, implications - however solid - would have flown over Joe’s head. Now, though, he still felt terrible, but he was much more in command of his faculties, enough to realize a losing... more

                  “Not regular, no,” said Joe. “Food didn’t appeal, but I was...really sleepy and thought it would wake me up.” He paused and added, “It didn’t work.” He raised his eyebrows slightly in surprise when... more
