After several days of doctor-ordered bland food, I experienced “flavor” yesterday as if for the first time. “SWEET BABY JESUS, WHAT PLANET DID THIS PICKLE COME FROM?!!!!”
And caffeine. I know that some of you think that life without caffeine is actually worth living. But it isn’t. My first Diet Coke after four days of abstinence was shiver-worthy. I didn’t see the hand that reached inside my head and removed the wads of cotton, but suddenly I remembered that I have hopes and dreams. Excellent!
