Still out of action

I’ve been suffering from a stomach complaint the last several days. I’ve essentially eaten nothing since Saturday at least — maybe Friday — and I don’t know at this point whether I feel horrible because I’m still sick or whether I feel horrible because I’m starving. Either way, I’m afraid to eat anything. I felt good enough to actually get up and go out last night, bought a gallon of milk and thought I’d try drinking that to start, but this turned out to be a grave error.

Today I ate a little cup of applesauce. So far I’ve kept it down, but I really don’t feel any better than before.

Of course, fascinating though it may be, the book of crime scene photos I’m currently reading is probably not helping the nausea either…
