Gargling salt water tastes ugly. But it helps with a sore throat. And I lost my sense of taste anyway – yes, I know, one can only lose what one posseses, ah what a joke. My head hurts, my feet are cold and these goddam windows are crap! I even turned on the heating in my sleeping room, something I never do. Snow piles on my balcony. It’s all black and white outside, very few traffic, next days will be colder. At least there are some small pieces of Marzipan, since 1806.
