Coffee Log, Day 294


Coffee: Earl Grey Tea, Bigelow; my sick stomach couldn’t handle coffee this morning. The tea was enough.

I was hacking and coughing all night long so I called out of work this morning. I’ve spent the day in a t-shirt and socks and boxers binge-watching Riverdale on Netflix. It’s a good show. Just the right amount of soap opera. Though I’m sure it’s even better through fever-goggles.

I still remember a time when you’d wait each week to watch another episode of something. I guess some people still do that, but I haven’t had cable for ten years, much like the rest of my generation. There was a nice bit of community wrapped up in the waiting. You’d talk to friends trying to guess what would happen next.

What does anyone wait for anymore? Paddling our kayaks like we’re in white waters even when it’s calm as a gentle lake. I don’t know if this is a good thing, bad thing, or just a thing. Hell, I’m too sick right now to make much sense of it.

  1. I’m sick too:( Feels like I have been for the past 4 months. I saw something that said “health is a crown that only the sick can see” and I remember that every time I’m sick, even if its just a simple cold. You probably know this, because you’re 30 and all, but DON’T GOOGLE YOUR SYMPTOMS! Anyway, happy belated, I enjoyed your writing today.

    1. That’s a good quote. I’ve been seeing bling on everybody this week! Thanks for the wishes and thanks for reading, glad you enjoyed. Maybe this weekend will have both of us feeling better. (p.s. I only googled them once…okay twice…and I have at least another week to live)
