i'm thinking though of going out for a burrito. this would be my reward for finishing my statement.
yes i know i eat a burrito almost everyday. i know a reward should be something special but those burritos are really special even in their everydayness. dinner is always a treat to which i look forward anew every 24 hours; when it is over i sometimes feel a little letdown, as though there is nothing left to stay awake for.
it's either that or beer, also not special but very special, but beer with a cold isn't that much fun. making yourself mentally fuzzy on top of feeling physically fuzzy only compounds the inertia of the sick. i might as well just go to bed early.
for sleep, while being not special, is itself very very special.
