Taking Some Morning Medicine

I’m pretty good at fighting a cold (a present battle): I quickly make a batch of chicken soup; I rest and drink liquids; I stay warm when outside; I make my students talk more during class. But like much of daily life nowadays, Czech wisdom reaches up to affect my normal processes.

Case in point … my 8am student this morning offered me coffee, as usual (and usually I accept), but today I suggested water only, as I had a bit of a sore throat.”Then you need some whiskey!” he declared. I checked my watch: 8:01 a.m. “Isn’t it a bit early?” I asked. He shook his head, giving me a sternly avuncular look. “You need medicine. So?”

So. Sure, why not.

Irish Whiskey is good for you!He went out to his admin and requested some “medicine” be brought in. And in it came: a nice double shot of Irish whiskey. Of course he joined me. Preventative medicine, I’m sure he was thinking.

In fact, I felt better by the end of the hour. Is there any wonder why?
