It's almost Christmas so, reverting to her childhood, Fiorella is sick. Not the scarlet fever or chicken pox of her youth, but a sinus infection--just enough to make her miserable. She got up at four this morning and ran a hot bath to warm herself and press a hot washcloth against the side of her nose so she could breathe. Today will be a chicken-rice-soup and hot-water-bottle day.
