Jorth sat in front of the doctor, feeling rather miserable with a fever and an aching throat. The doctor looked at her sternly, and said "So, to recap, over the last few days you have done the following: shot a photo shoot for a small label in the rain, went to a friend's birthday party, rode all over the city doing errands, hit up the Roxette concert, went to a relative's 70th birthday celebration, wrote an article, baked a cake, made 18 pom poms and cut out 10 dolls for the school fete. Have I missed out on anything?"
"Whew!", said Jorth. "I feel tired just thinking about it!"
"Well, young lady, I'm prescribing lots of orange juice, some knitting on the couch and pulling out a pre-cooked dinner from the freezer. We need you in tip top shape so you can be creating crafty goodness again."
Jorth took the prescription, which had written upon it in block letters STAY ON THE COUCH AND REST UP, and agreed to take her medicine.
