Man down

Posted: May 1, 2011 in Uncategorized

At least half of the past weekend has been spent unconscious. The rest hasn’t wandered far from it, as sometime around noon on Friday the weight of a cold settled firmly on me and only just started to let up Sunday afternoon. My standard routine when I get a cold is to essentially shut down, drink immense amounts of tea, and play various movies and books on tape in the background as I wander in and out of wakefulness under the covers of my bed. I simply entomb myself with my misery until it decides it wants to go play elsewhere, venturing on the occasional expedition to the kitchen to replenish my tea and perhaps some miso soup and an english muffin. Time ceases to have much meaning, and I’d almost enjoy this sort of carefree, womb-like cocooning if I didn’t feel so goddamn awful.

And just like that, it’s Monday again.
