I appear to have underestimated the “allergies”. Now I have a head cold.
There are a couple of silver linings to this day.
A while ago a friend I was talking to half-jokingly said I was too formal, thanking him for doing something simple. The funny thing is I’m really not: I’m not being formal or polite or anything, I am genuinely incredibly pleased and grateful when my friends do nice things for me.
Today, for instance, two of them I’d had weekend plans with offered to bring me things — which isn’t a huge gesture in and of itself, but which I hugely appreciated.
And then there’s my room mate of course, who actually did bring soup and make grilled cheese — grilled cheese! — for us.
If I get sappy I can blame it on the DayQuil.
