I've been whining a lot about being sick on all the social media things and for that I apologize, but I'm here to tell you the story of my triumphant return. Kind of. Friday night I went to bed around 8pm and then after spending all day Saturday lazing about and renting Rebox movies with Ziggy
for the third night in a row, I decided to do something about it. That something just so happened to involve a very dusty juicer that was hastily purchased with a LivingSocial deal approximately 12 months ago and used maybe thrice since (that's not even true, it's more like eight times. I just wanted to say 'thrice'). I Googled "immune system juice" and chose the one that suited me both in tasty and readily available ingredients: an apple, four carrots and a 1/4 inch ginger root. I juiced 'em up, poured them into a mason jar (duh), added a fancy straw and took selfies like a pixilated champion in need of a manicure.
But wait! The story doesn't end there! Sunday morning I woke up feeling slightly less zombie-like. Maybe it's because I did nothing except sleep, drink water and down cold medicine for several days, but I'd like to say it's because of this here juice. Either way, I loaded up the sausage pup and met my BFF Emma in San Francisco for Ziggy's first time in the city. We hiked and saw beautiful things, played on a pebble beach and then ended a lovely day with lunch at Hopscotch in Oakland where we ate yonsei oysters and beef tongue.
Basically Sunday was a perfect day and, justified or not, I'm giving the juice credit. So if you want to have a wonderful day after spending a lot of time being sick and lame, make this juice. Boom, logic.
