Things to be grateful for...

...when you have an ear infection, are coughing up phlegm, your voice is dropped an octave because you're congested and your nose is stuffed:

1. Health insurance.

2. Parents who have good jobs so you have health insurance.

3. Kleenex pocket packs that look like candy!

4. Duane Reade on nearly every corner in Manhattan.

5. Puffs tissues with lotion.

6. A nice roommate who lends you her big purple pillow so you can sleep sitting up.

7. Not being allergic to medication.

8. A nice apartment-mate's white kumkum.

9. Living around the block from the school buildings.

10. A second nice apartment-mate who gives you tea and honey for sniffly times.

Refua shelaima, Apple.

If you need anything, you know where to find me.

G said...

ohhhhhhhhh, you have a stove but no teakettle...right, NOW it's all clear to me - what!?

the apple said...

A kumkum is an electric teakettle. We have no regular teakettle, so we use this one instead to have hot water.

Feel better soon! Thank G-d for the small things that are not really so small once you think about them...

Well maybe Obama will give all us poor folks with poor parents some health insurance.

I just hate choosing between feeding myself and health insurance.
