‘Let tacos be thy medicine and medicine be thy tacos.’
I started coming down with a cold this past winter. Something had been going around for weeks at work, and I was the last one to get it. Sneezing, runny nose, cough, head congestion… it came on like a ton of bricks. But then I remembered the Hipptacocratic Oath, “First, eat a taco.”
And so I did. The first taco didn’t have much flavor, or I couldn’t taste it very well, due to my illness. I drank plenty of fluids (margaritas), and then tried another taco. I found it much more appetizing. I could taste the healing powers of that taco, and found my levels beginning to increase exponentially. Suddenly my cold symptoms began to disappear. I could breathe normally again.
Now, I’m not saying that eating tacos is a miracle cure for every ailment… but if you find yourself coming down with an illness, it certainly couldn’t hurt to try it.
