Thankfully, I'm feeling much better now, though this has reiterated how much more irritating it is to be sick when you're not at home. Example: last night while feeling crummy, I was on the phone with Jon and he suggested I make myself a cup of tea... This would have been wonderful for my throat, but, alas, I don't have tea OR a coffee mug to make it in here, while I have a plethora of both at home. No fun. I swiped a glass and some tea bags from the dining hall tonight though, so it's all good.
As for the favorite fruit part of this post, I just wanted to say that I've finally tried raw figs and, wow, I'm in love. My family in France actually has a fig tree in the yard and we were able to pick some a few weeks ago and since then, I've been hooked. I'd never had a raw fig before and let me tell you, they're fabulous. They're fun to eat, since you can eat the entire fruit and easily break them apart, and they have a light, refreshing taste that's perfect for summer. I'm definitely going to have to keep looking for these babies when I get back home... DELICIOUS. If you've never tasted them before, I highly recommend it. Plus, they're really high in fiber. Win!
That's all I've got for now, folks. Sorry for the random post, but I haven't been on a run since Sunday, what with being sick and all (I miss it). Instead, I've been sleeping and watching True Blood on my computer (why is it that every time I come to Europe, I get addicted to a new American TV show? Weird.)
