Burn, Baby, Burn...
Have been out of action with a fever. No, not Olympic* fever – although that too is infectious – but my very own personal heat source.
I’d forgotten what it’s like to be downed by a fever – the strange delirious dreams, your perception of familiar objects and rooms distorted, the sense of being distant from your body, time doing wacky things with your mind – all this due to the body’s own mechanism for fighting some invasive virus or bacteria.
Feeling so off-kilter sort of reminds me of the days I once… Hmm, never mind that bit of irrelevant history.
Today I’m at 98.6 – or close enough. The psychedelic glasses are off and it’s back to reality. My own special version.
Please pass the brownies. (Just kidding!)
*At long last, the first Gold medal for Canada as an Olympic host country! It’s been many, many years. Congratulations and bless you, Alexandre Bilodeau.
