My generous neighbor L, prior to going to the city to celebrate the holiday with family, left me chicken soup and also a Christmas goodie…

I’ve long since proven to my grief that heavy doses of rich food/drink will cause me gastric distress even when I’m perfectly healthy. I could only imagine how long it would take to recover from this bout of flu or stomach virus or whatever it was before I could get into that bottle safely, but the problem is it has a finite shelf life.
So this morning I decided to take a very cautious taste, really just wet the tongue a bit, maybe pour half a glug into some coffee.
Yeah, big mistake. It’s delicious but after the second tiny sip of coffee my stomach told me in no uncertain terms that one more sip and it was sending the whole thing back along with everything I’ve eaten in the past two days. Which isn’t a lot.
Thinking of going over and giving it to D&L, because to waste it would be shameful but I don’t think I’ll be able to drink it in time.
