Still under the weather

Here, let me show you something:


You know what that is? It’s a coffee grinder. You put coffee beans in it, and it grinds them down for you, so that you can put the coffee in your coffee maker. Do you see the beans at the top? I put those there just after Christmas. And then I got sick, and decided that I shouldn’t be drinking coffee. So the beans are still sitting there. Lonely. Wishing they could be ground up, and have hot water poured over them, to make coffee. But they can’t.

You want to see something else? Here:


Do you know what that is? Of course you do. It’s a carton of Egg Nog. I bought that just after Christmas, too. And then I got sick, and, just like the coffee, I decided that I probably shouldn’t be drinking it, if I’m having urinary issues. (You probably can’t make out the expiry date, from that picture, but it expired 11 days before I wrote this post.) It’s too bad, because I love egg nog, and always have. But they only sell it around the Christmas/New Year timeframe.

Actually, it’s doubly bad, because I discovered, during the Christmas holidays, that if you combine the two—coffee using egg nog instead of cream/milk—it tastes really good. I was very much enjoying this holiday treat. Until I got sick.

This post sounds very pathetic, like I’m feeling sorry for myself, but I’m not. My symptoms are still very mild, and I don’t have any pain. I just wish I could get an appointment with the specialist, so that I could find out what’s wrong with me.
