Despite my best efforts, I finally caught a cold this winter. This is more than a cold—it's a burning throat and weird yellow chunks and a voice that sounds like one part Monster of Montauk and one part Kathleen Turner. It's not awesome.

And while I would've loved to stay in bed, I had to go to the store this morning to get some cough drops and soup and HOLY SHIT LOOK WHAT WAS THERE!

It's Sumo season! These are the BEST. They're not too sweet, they're kind of crunchy (as crunchy as an orange can be, anyway), and super juicy. They have a low acidity, too, so you can eat more of them without your mouth feeling raw. They're incredible. They're the perfect citrus. What a wonderful way to deliver mass dosages of vitamin C to my system.
