I would really, really, really like an overpriced Fourbucks drink right now. Something iced, caffeinated, milky, and filled with lots and lots of sugar. It is 10PM and I still have 8 papers left to grade for tomorrow.
Iced drinks are bad for colitis.
Caffeine is bad for colitis.
Milk is bad for colitis.
Sugar is bad for my immune system, which is ultimately bad for colitis.
Instead I am having hot organic herbal ginger tea.
This is what I have been reduced to at 32 years of age: I now sit around at night, sip unsweetened herbal tea while mumbling a feigned “mmmm” with every sip, (pretend to) grade undergraduate papers, fantasize about overpriced coffee drinks from a chain coffee shop, and write on my miscarriage blog to avoid having to actually grade said papers.
