This weekend is the annual conference for the Editors’ Association of Canada. And this year, the conference has returned to my hometown. I haven’t been in 2 years, and I’ve so been looking forward to seeing people I know, sharing stories, and – most importantly – not having to shell out a fortune on hotels and meals to attend. The opening reception is tonight.
So what happens when I wake up this morning? Oh, tell us, Christina, I hear you say.
Well, I’ll tell you.
I WAKE UP WITH A COLD THIS MORNING, THAT’S WHAT.
Fuck. Goddamnit. At this point it’s only a sore throat, but it’s difficult to talk and I’m definitely feeling a change in sinus pressure. Of course I have to get sick right before the most important networking opportunity of the year. Of course I do.
Anyways, that’s why I’m drinking this. I have to admit that I’m not a fan of this blend, as it’s too heavy on the peppermint. But mint is what you need when you’re sick, and since I’m sick, I might as well finish up a blend that I’ll have a little trouble tasting.
Blech. Woe is me.
