Coffee With Mi

Mi, I toast you with a tumbler of freshly brewed kaapi!



Funny how, when we’re sick and in bed and can’t open our eyes because even the darkness is too bright, everything else comes into sharp focus. I remember thinking I should get up and switch off the fan, except the fan wasn’t on.

It is also weird how all sorts of past incidents do a marathon rewind in the head. Except, now, our perspective is different from when they happened. And thank heavens for that, eh? I don’t have much recollection of the rest of yesterday after I returned from the doc, except I am sure I did get up to eat something and of course, took my meds, thanks to Sury who did the same. I know that between us, we also kept in touch with Vidur.

Later in the evening today, I sat up for a while with a cup of tea. Eating is just a chore, because I can’t taste a thing and have an underlying bitterness in my mouth probably thanks to the fever. I decided to veg out in front of the TV and aimlessly surfed channels for a while before it became too much of an effort. I was drifting in and out from the realms of sleep anyway, dreaming crazy things that borrowed scenes from reality and my subconscious.

And of course, the old faithful didn’t disappoint: going to write an exam and having all sorts of bizarre things happen to mess it up before I woke up in a sweat, disoriented, then relieved to realize where I was. Heh.

Perhaps the worst part of being sick is not being able to read. But my headache just wont go away and sadly, I cannot focus on any print because it hurts. It feels like there’s a furnace in my head waiting to send a ball of fire out of my eyes.

How gory. Voice still hibernating, though. Needs a little more TLC I guess. I can’t even taste the coffee!

For no reason at all, Sting’s Fields of Gold keeps playing in my head. Not that it is a bad thing… it isn’t! I have so many memories associated with that song, Mi! Remember how we used to watch the video mesmerized? Sweet memories. Do you walk in fields of gold, now?

Now I am just compelled to listen to the rest of the playlist… Every breath you take – oh, the bass guitar! and Desert Rose … when I have the energy. Until then I’ll just let them play in my head.

It is Children’s Day today, by the way.

Sharing is caring!
