Suffering from a raging cold or flu, this will be a fairly short and dull post. 🙂 But let’s not make this about me.
I’ve been cuddled up all day with my Butterscotch tea from Marriage Freres. If I hadn’t picked that up, I would have gone for the Noel from MF or the Joy from Taizo that Starbucks sells. When I’m sick, tea must have all those great spicy notes in it. Probably doesn’t make me feel better, but the smell is so comforting.
And my blanket. I’m attached to the Little Giraffe microfiber blankets. I get probably two of them a year, when dreamalittledreamwithme.com puts them on sale (they’re on sale now, plus 20% off with bigsale2010 as the code) because as much as I love them , I’m in heaven when I get a new one, it’s fresh from the package, and it’s my virgin snuggle blanket. Yeah, a little weird. But they feel amazing. And my new one I got on sale shows up today, early in the morning, and I wrapped up in it, with my Butterscotch tea, and other than being all sniffly, feverish and sick? It was perfect. There is something almost joyful it letting go when you are sick and just sinking into that semi-lucid fog, completely understanding how helpless you are, and that the sick has to run its course.
I thought about trying to put on some perfume and write somewhat thoughtfully about it and just gave up. I am loving that new Martin Margiela thing I got at Colette. It’s nutty-like, but more than that.
And Root beer. Zuberfizz root beer is the other thing I have to have. I’ll settle for Hansen’s or something, but Zuberfizz with real cane sugar in it is my first choice.
Now that it’s clear we just aren’t going to talk about perfume today, what’s your getting sick rituals or things you sink into when you stop fighting it?
