I yawned, my ears popped a little, and sound rushed in from all around. It was stupendous. My ears had been lightly blocked all day, victim of this viral infection I've been fighting; until that point, I hadn't even realized how much of my hearing had gone missing.

Like health, or solvency, sensation is something you don't fully appreciate until it's restored.

Also, apparently I care deeply about the taste of food even if I'm not hungry. I was stirring together a batch of chicken a la king, which I intend to be our go-to microwaved meal for the week (we often don't have time to do real cooking on work nights), and I found myself unhappy with the flavor. I kept adding and tasting, thyme and pepper and curry powder, until I was satisfied with it.

Then, for dinner, I served myself a tiny tiny bit. Because I'm sick. And I don't really want any food. Hopefully I'll want some tomorrow.
