I don't get sick very often. I get symptoms, but it's only once every few years that I get bed ridden. There's a good and a bad side to that. Shaw said that convalescence is the best part of illness. Or something close to that. I don't remember where he said it and that's why I restrained myself from quotation marks.
I don't get sick because I eat right, I exercise every day, and I drink lots of tea. Then when I start feeling sick I pump myself full of healthy herbs, hot citrus, and, well, lots of tea.
Yesterday I started coughing. Today I'm in a strange place because I woke up with my lungs in a vice and coughing up things of many colors and sizes. But I feel totally normal. Like I could run a marathon. But I know that if I did, or even if I walked my normal three miles in the December ocean air I'd be slammed to the bed. Once again, good and bad. I usually like to be slammed... oh, just skip it.
So today I did my usual work, which is mostly sitting in front of this very computer. Then I sat and read and didn't do a heck of a lot else until tonight.
Opus read at the Liquid Den. I haven't seen Opus since last Friday, but before that I hadn't seen him since Charles and Phish's wedding. Opus rules.
Right after the reading I left to get home and get resting. My body's used to rhino charging all the live long day so I'm sure the shock of all this extra rest will beat the holy crap out of my cough.
