Night vision

I can’t tell the difference between emphatically reasoned thought, and though that demonstrates reason emphatically. Yet as I lie here awake, consumed by a common flu, I reason with emphasis that the only entity served by my being ill is the producer of the painkiller that I’ve been munching all day like a little boy eating his first tube of smarties. For me, logical thought, despite being doped up on paracetemol, prevails. In my virus induced confusion I see that my suffering is not necessary, and there is an ability out there to remedy it immediately. Yet me, and all of the other flu suffering paracetemol purchasing people are putting food on the table of those (forgetting the big dogs) who rely on their jobs that are indicative to bringing such medicinal products to the shelves. In this I realise a certain calm. The virus won’t kill me. The product encourages recovery. The man packaging it feeds his family. All is well. Or perhaps the pills are inspiring this drivel.
