20 Sep 2022: Eat Well Laugh Often Love Much
Sat&Sun: spoons are the only cutlery needed this weekend and the next few days. Still sore down the throat, healing slowly but surely. Will have to continue to avoid solid foods and hot foods&drinks for the week. Seems like this aging body is now demanding more time to heal. An excuse to dig my spoon&eat straight out of a 473ml ice-cream tub – no problems to finish the whole tub for a meal.
Might as well try to drink the ocean with a spoon as argue with a lover — Stephen King.
