For the past week, I've drifted off to sleep with the help of a codeine cough syrup.
Sweet, coughless sleep. In my codeine stupor, I dream of Opium Dens. Luxurious beds draped in rich fabrics of velvet and silk. Reds, purples, deep blues. Beautiful women walking around in wraps of color holding trays. Trays of my sweet elixir.
A beauty holds out a crystal teaspoon full of cough syrup. Cherry or Orange?
I'm feeling so much better. If I could just get rid of this lingering hacking. Back to work tomorrow after an entire week on the couch. I bet my desk looks like a disaster area. But I'll be so happy to dive into it!
