2. The beginning stages of sickness make my weird thoughts more apparent.
I totally relate to this. I feel strange mentally when I first start getting sick. It's this weird altered state, even if my fever isn't terribly high.

"In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled." Daniel 10:2-3
Just got back from a night out on the town. I went with my Korean friend and Polish friend and we hit up at least 8 or 9 clubs and spent a substantial amount of time in 5 of time. I got exhausted (faster than usual) by the dancing due to my peptic ulcer acting up so I spent a lot of the time seated. After the clubs closed at 4 AM, we sat on the pavement having sodas and biscuits and ended up getting affectionately harassed by a barrage of working girls headed home after a night spent hustling.
Two of them insisted on giving me a peck and all I could think about was the very real possibility that those same lips had been wrapped around some dude's pole shortly before that.
