Every day my cold gets better, and every night I go to the bar, drink a few beers, and come back much worse. You'd think I'd make a connection, right?

Well, even I eventually draw conclusions. I know the coffee I've been drinking all day is bad too; it just feels toxic going down. Problem is, without something to drink other than plain old water, I just have to break the monotony. If not with something healthy, it will be something bad. So today I went to the herbalist, and he gave me this packet of stuff called 'abango'. It's wood chips, flowers, dried fruits (apparently), anyway a lot of different stuff, possibly all from the same plant. I made a tea of it by just putting it into my drip coffeemaker as I would a filterfull of coffee, and have been drinking it for the last few hours. I don't know if it's helping my cold, but I've been having diarrhea starting soon after the first cup, so at least I'm getting rid of some of the toxins in my system. And I'm not drinking coffee nor beer. So maybe it's a good thing.
