Antoinette had brought gin over for us to drink by the pool at the Sofitel and we never got around to it. Trevor ended up making us a drink out of the book Steve Olson had given him as a birthday gift. It was called “Death in the Gulf Stream” and was apparently something Earnest Hemingway created as a hangover remedy (!) Well, it does have sparkling water in it – maybe that is the re-hydration part of the hangover remedy?
In case I ever want to keep score, I cried very little today – and towards the end of the week, so perhaps I really am getting better. But Sunday (when the downstairs tenant’s friend wake me up by ringing the bloody doorbell), I wake up in FLOODS of tears – and bleeding so heavily I am faint and sad and can’t walk much.
