December 16 - 25 Days of Christmas Blogging Challenge
He mentioned that the woman sitting next to him on the plane from Taiwan was sick and he suspected he must've contracted the flu or something from her because he felt like he was about to die from the headache and nausea. So, I quarantined him in the bedroom and slept on the couch.
This morning, I went up to check on him. He said he felt better, but he still had a slight headache. What's weird, is that, earlier this week, I had a significant headache for nearly two days and the headache pain I described, was much like the headache he was having. (Throbbing pain, across the forehead, etc.) As we were discussing the headache I had and the headache he was having, he asked me if I changed up anything while he was gone... foodwise. I couldn't think of anything and then he asked. What about the coffee?
And then it hit me... I went to check the bag of coffee and we had been drinking decaf coffee! My withdrawal headache happened 4 days prior to his withdrawal headache. And his was happening at that moment! I immediately, tossed the decaf coffee out and brewed up a pot of regular coffee and it was like he was as good as new. It was a miraculous recovery.
Who would've thought that two days without caffeinated coffee would wreak so much havoc on our lives?
