I've been feeling like crap for about a week and a half. Coughing, congestion, stuffed up. I woke up a couple different mornings and thought ah it's gone but then it would come back. I read a wonderful book by the wonderful Lawrence Durrell and that made me feel better.
Then my friend Jane ... she's the wife of my buddy Jack at work ... she went to Newport and stopped along the way and picked fresh strawberries and sent some with Jack to give me. I dumped them on a pint of half-melted Haagen-Dazs vanilla. This too made me feel better.
Finally I remembered that I have a doctor. I went to see him today. "Bronchitis," he pronounced. He gave me some scripts. Now I'm not going to just feel better but am going to get better!
