The Kindness of (non)Strangers

9.07.2010 | My Blog

Now, as you all know I’ve been pretty sick for the past few days. Not sure what it was, but it seems to be subsiding now. I couldn’t figure out why it was taking so long to rid myself of this bug, but then my brother summed it up pretty well, “you were just on a freaking mountain, idiot. Your body needs to adjust to THAT before it can adjust to you being back at sea-level, you dork” (ok, so maybe I’m paraphrasing, but you get the idea).

Anyway, seems that the only thing my body was allowing me to store in my gooey tangle of guts was fruit and the occasional vegetable.

Speaking of fruits… remember my friends Keith and Joan?

NO! NO! NO!  That is NOT what I meant! Keith and Joan are NOT fruits. (However, what they may call one another in the privacy of their own home is up to them…)

What I mean is, I had a knock on my door a few minutes ago, and when I opened it, this is what was handed to me:

Isn’t that AWESOME?! They sent me a huge fruit basket! Full of all the things that I can actually eat right now! THOSE GENIUSES!

So thank you, Keith and Joan. Thank you for the many acts of kindness you have shown me since I mentioned this journey to you, and thank you for your unending support since Day One.

With much love and a full belly,
