No, seriously. I know some of you think I can’t function without coffee and normally you’d be right, but we were in dire straits here at Chateau Felidae.
When I first realized, just after Thanksgiving, that I was coming down with something nasty, I dumped the caffeine. My go-to drink when I’m sick is a non-alcoholic hot toddy (hot water poured over fresh-squeezed citrus juice, honey, and a cinnamon stick), then slowly switching to herbal tea with honey as I feel better. I know for a fact that this helps the healing, so I was “okay, ride it out, you can survive a few days without your fix, Gilman.”
Besides, it wasn’t like I was getting much writing done, with my head so fogged-in.
