the mysterious powers of belief
I got home from work (which I was bored to death from because was so dead; compared the Christmas rush it seems like I didn't have any customers) and I find that my mother, and my two brothers are both already in bed with the flu or some type of severe cold. Of course, in an effort to stave off the effects of this possibly debilitating illness, I immediately set to work making a pot of Chinese Green Tea.
I'm convinced that this stuff is really good for you. This may not be the case, but the truth is that sometimes people are able to physically change their reality simply by believing something strong enough. I'm going to convince myself that if I drink this pot of tea and watch a comfort movie (something like Star Wars or Moulin Rouge) this will keep me healthy and strong. And I just might be right.
