Day Fourteen : Recreate a Single Day
Yesterday I woke up at 4 in the morning, I get up early, because I’m required to offer, the morning prayer before sunrise. I went back to bed after an hour, and woke up the second time at 6 in the morning.
I was still having a dull toothache and wasn’t sure what I could eat to avoid the pain from getting worse. Incidentally I had the tooth ache since last Saturday, because of the week-end and holiday on Monday, I was lucky to get an appointment with a Dentist on Tuesday .
Going back to recreate my single day and the food I was about to take,I poured a mug of milk and warmed it up in the microwave oven. I felt like eating some solid food, it had to be soft, because my dentist told me to chew on one side of my mouth, which is the right side, the left side went through an hour of trauma, it needed two fillings.
I grabbed a slice of bread, tore it into bite size pieces and mixed it with warm milk, I simply put the pieces directly in the mug. Then began my ordeal of eating bread and the milk, it wasn’t a pleasant experience, this was the best way to put something in my stomach.
I tried to do my assignments but my brain did not cooperate, how could it, it’s been deprived of food all day. I didn’t like to push my luck, so I watched some tennis matches, although I lowered the volume, I heard some fuzzy sounds in my head.
I lay down and dozed off, when I woke up the tennis match was almost over.It was time for lunch, the very word food made me nervous, I knew I’d be taxing left side of my mouth if I tried to eat solid food.I was trying to think what could I safely eat to prevent pain then recalled my daughter bought some pudding, there were two kinds, Tapioca and Chocolate. I tried the first one, it was all right, there was no need to chew, the pain still warning me not to indulge in too much food. My head was giving me a very different message, ‘eat something or you’ll faint.’
This tug of war between food and pain continued until my daughter returned, I complained about pain, she reminded me to take two Advil, well I must admit it’s a miraculous pain killer, I swallowed two and in fifteen minutes the pain was gone. By the way this is not a jingle for Advil, this is how things went during this long painful day.
I forgot to mention I had an appointment with a gentleman who came to my house to discuss certain things, it was done in an hour, he left and I tried to do the assignment again, but failed.
It was a rough day, I could accomplish hardly anything. In the assignment yesterday I had the option of writing a fifty word or a hundred word story or a Haiku. I picked Haiku, three lines 5-7-5 syllables it’s doable I thought, which is what my mind permitted me to do.
For supper I was craving for some spicy food with rice which was in my fridge, I warmed it up mashed it and ate, it felt so good.
In the evening I watched my favorite show Jeopardy for half hour, got ready for bed, that’s about it for, ‘my recreate a single day,’ for today.
