My head hurts. A lot. I thought the hardest part of this trip, next to not being able to breathe, would be not having ice. Europe doesn’t have ice, or at least not readily available. Why??? I have ice at home- as much as I want any time I want without even having to be burdened by opening a refrigerator door. Even my Saint Bernard loves getting ice from the dispenser. Spoiled dog. Here, no ice.
However, this headache I woke up with is not ice withdrawal. Caffeine, baby. All the way. I haven’t had a Dr. Pepper since I was in Phoenix. If I don’t have caffeine soon my head may explode. Of course, at this point, that may be a relief.
I gave up Dr. Pepper for missionary work. (Not necessarily voluntarily, but because Poland doesn’t have Dr. Pepper.) Sadly, for me, that is a sacrifice. Number one for the new year’s resolution list next year.
