Day Zero: Seven O'clock

I woke with a massive headache. And when I say massive, I mean my first thought when I opened my eyes was, 'Oh, fuck this day.'

  6. At first I thought this was going to be non fiction. Not sure if this is in context with your teaser, but I do notice food tastes different according to my mood.
    Have a fabulous weekend, Freda!
