good for what ails you

I'm laying in bed with my laptop catching up on all the bazillion posts in my Goggle Reader cause that's about all I have energy to do.

My head hurts, my chest hurts and my throat hurts.  My nose is giving Niagara Falls a run for it's money and I might be suffocated by the mountain of tissues next to the bed at any moment.  All I can think about is how wonderful a nice cup of hot coffee would be right now. Sigh. It's too late and I'm feeling too lazy to do anything about it.  Sigh.

Even back in 1699, folks knew that coffee could cure what ails you...
“Moderately drunk, coffee removes vapours from the brain, occasioned by fumes of wine, or other strong liquors; eases pains in the head, prevents sour belchings, and provokes appetite.”                                                                  ~England's Happiness Improved

The "moderate" may be a problem for me...

"Actually, this seems to be the basic need of the human heart in nearly every great crisis - a good hot cup of coffee.”                 ~Alexander King  
In my world everything is better with either coffee or wine (or on really good days, both). This makes me think of Jason Myles Goss and his song Coffee and Wine.  

At least the promise of hot coffee will give me some motivation to get out of bed in the morning (cause we all know climbing out of bed at 5:00 am, even on a good day, is hard).


  1. I drink tea, but I still have love for this post.

  2. So hope you feel better and some angel delivered coffee to you!

  3. You really are a girl after my own heart! Anyone who mentions wine and coffee in the same post!! And, I got up early cause my throat is screaming! I think I may just have caught strep from my more denying it!
    Hope you feel better!


Random love is always welcomed...
