Yesterday I was on the beach at our Agua Hedionda Lagoon with a friend, taking photos just before sunset when the light was perfectperfectperfect.
It took me about ten minutes to walk home.
Without warning, I was shaking with chills, a headache, and a 101.5 temp.
Just like that.
It hit me like a wrecking ball.
I couldn’t get warm. I took a hot shower, drank scalding tea, and made miso soup.
Finally, five hours later, my teeth stopped chattering and I started burning up.
You want to know when I really miss my tugboat man?
It’s times like this, when I wish he were here to bring me Tylenol and a cold compress; toast and tea.
It’s these little things; the “in sickness and in health” kinds of things-that weave the fibers of a marriage.
Yup, I’m feeling a bit sorry for myself right about now.
Anyone want to bring me a cuppa?
