I am now drinking my first cup of coffee since Saturday 2/23.
O Coffee! Thou dost dispel all cares, thou are the
object of desire to the scholar.
This is the beverage of the friends of God; it gives
health to those in its service who strive after wisdom.
Why did I deprive myself of the elixir of life? A nasty, nasty case of influenza. I literally couldn’t get out of bed at times. 102° and all manner of digestive mayhem. Bad enough that my doctor wanted to admit me to the hospital for rehydration. As of this morning, I’m down eight pounds. And now Erin is showing the symptoms I did last week. Ugh.
Yes, O Coffee, I need you now.
