It's discouraging, at the very point when you are trying finally to be comfortable in your own body, to have that body laid low by a virus. Too much time to lie in bed and think about the transient nature of happiness, and such.

What is it men in women do require
The lineaments of Gratified Desire

What is it women in men do require
The lineaments of Gratified Desire

She dwells with Beauty—Beauty that must die;
  And Joy, whose hand is ever at his lips
Bidding adieu; and aching Pleasure nigh,
  Turning to poison while the bee-mouth sips:
Ay, in the very temple of Delight
  Veil'd Melancholy has her sovran shrine,
    Though seen of none save him whose strenuous tongue
  Can burst Joy's grape against his palate fine;
His soul shall taste the sadness of her might,
    And be among her cloudy trophies hung.

—O, damn you and your Paris fads, Buck Mulligan said. I want Sandycove milk.
