Head Cold

I came down with a cold Saturday and ever since have been drugged on decongestants such that anything I try to write or to say comes out nonsense. It was particularly frustrating yesterday when I was put on the spot in a couple of meetings at work. But! Last night the thing broke! I remember a distinct moment in which I transitioned from an inability to breathe to breathing. It really was a remarkable moment, like when you thought you might have superglued your fingers shut but then suddenly they separated, and you sighed with relief.
