02 Apr '17 — The only time of year
I was marveling at facades in the neighborhood. It's never this sunny in winter, so until late March, the buildings look drab, no matter what color they're painted.
There was an older facade at the cafe I visited today. I got really hot while sitting there. I only order hot drinks so I ordered a mint tea. Mint is suppose to cool, right? Well, I started sweating--profusely. My bench became uncomfortable under the sun.
After I finished my tea, my husband ordered me a fresh lemonade with basil. I was surprised how the drink cooled me off right away. I stopped sweating. I would've never order the drink myself.
I always thought it was less 'healthy' to drink cold drinks. Especially since I've been coughing recently.
It's strange to realize how little I know about my physical body. Now that I'm almost entirely sure that I caused my own allergies for six months, I'm open to learning what other 'healthy' habits have backfired.
