It was my birthday, and rarely have I been this sick from a common cold! In earnest, a birthday to remember. My friend suggested I’d stay at home and rest, before we went out for dinner, while she went uptown to take more photos. She took off, and I took two of those cold medication pills that seem to be so popular here in North America. I’d never really tried them before, but I felt so bad I thought “it can’t hurt”. Well … it certainly didn’t [hurt]. I became all perked up — much more so than my usual self! It was almost unbelievable. So I called her up, and we decided to meet at Starbucks uptown. It was the hottest day so far. We roamed around the uptown area and took random photos.
