Some days, Fio whizzes around the house like The Flash, checking off fifty million entries on her to-do list. Today isn't one of them. She barely had the strength to hold the hot water bottle in place while she filled it from the teakettle to treat her sinus headache. And now it's noon and she hasn't done anything but read the paper, work the crossword, and answer emails. It's like she's in a drug daze.
Must be the aftermath of the bagels she ate for dinner yesterday. Everyone knows poppy seeds can make a person test positive for opium.
