It has been a quiet start to November for me. I have spent the past few days recovering from a major chest cold so I haven't quite felt up to writing much. I still feel a bit under the weather, but I'm determined to make a speedy recovery. I have too much to get caught up on and too many things coming up to allow myself to be out of commission for too long.
But even in sickness, I found something fitting to mention here.
Having gone through at least one box of Kleenex in the last two days, I now understand why I aways believe in having plenty on hand. And for those of you with the morbid streak, why not try black tissue? For those in mourning, wanting to look sophisticated, or depressed about the status of health care in America, Diashowa, a Japanese company, released its own line of black facial tissue... though with a price tag of $178 for 20 boxes, it might not be a wise choice of you're sick!
Though if you prefer blowing your reddened nose with toilet paper, Renova has a cheaper black alternative for mourning losses of a different kind. They also have more cheerful, vibrant colors if your bathroom would like a chipper feel to it.
