“It’s the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.” –Marlene Dietrich
Having just spent the last several days in a medicine-induced stupor with neither a voice nor an ability to eat anything without a violent protest from my stomach, it occurred to me that I am grateful for illnesses that help me to lose a pants’ size in a weekend without having to jog. I’ve now sneezed several times into a jar and plan to bust this monster virus out again after the holidays. With any luck, it will mutate by then into a new and improved version that also gets rid of wrinkles and cellulite.
And on that note, I am also grateful for lifelong friends who will travel from another town to hang out with you during said illness, despite the fact that there is a good chance you’ll yak on them at some point. Those friends are awesome.
Finally, I am grateful for Jason Bateman. Because he is just beautiful. © Racheal Lee Bradford
