I woke up this morning with a wicked headache and I have no idea why. Usually a headache of this type - occurring on a weekend - simply meant that I have not had any coffee yet. Even a regular modest coffee intake of, say, 2 to 3 cups a day - Monday through Friday - makes it imperative that I continue that dosage throughout the weekend. If not - or even if the first cup consumed is not within an hour of the time I would usually have my first cup during the work week - the result is a dull throbbing pain that will continue increasing in intensity until such a time that it is beaten back with a nice fresh brewed cup of coffee.
Unfortunately, this cannot be the case this time, for due to regrettable illness last weekend, I have lost my taste for coffee. Oh, it still smells really good to me, but I can't bring my self to drink it. This has happened before so I am not overly concerned.
Anyway, because I have gone without coffee all week and experienced no ill effects there must be another reason behind this headache.
It's not a hangover. I had one beer last night. With food.
I have taken a couple of advil and I am going to lay back here with my eyes closed and hope this goes away soon.
