My vacation so far has been...
1 sinus infection, which I came down with the night before my drive to Maine
1 antibiotics prescription, which my doctor kindly gave me before the trip because I could see this coming like a train on a distant track (a large unfriendly train subject to sudden crashing)
1 80-pack of cough drops (many cough drop wrappers strewn around my car)
3 boxes of kleenex
1 bottle of nyquil (nectar of the gods)
1 bottle of daytime cold medicine (might as well be water for all the good that's doing)
3 Lemony Snicket books read (reading slowly, taking many breaks/naps)
1/10 of a crossword puzzle done (these things are really really hard when you can't think!)
1 lobster roll eaten (I'm sick, not dead)
Hoping the antibiotics kick in by morning, so I'll be coherent enough to start enjoying the trip.
