The happy side of Anemia

I felt really ill this morning and couldn't figure out why.  I fell asleep on the couch while watching Morning Joe and went back to my bed after the show was over (at 9 am) and slept for another 3 hours (this is unheard of for me who sits bolt-upright at 6 am and is happily awake).  Later on, my mom called and I was talking with her about my symptoms.  I realized I hadn't eaten red meat in a really long time (and last week was my period) so I was probably slightly iron deficient/anemic.  My mom remembered that I used to get like this in high school when I was training for rowing and eating only chicken and veggies.  I'm kind of glad I forgot what this felt like.  Anyway, my mom was telling me to order the biggest hamburger or steak I could find and put it on her credit card so that I feel better for my trip to DC on Thursday.  We ended our conversation with this:

Go eat some red meat and drink a heavy beer!  Auchtung!
Schnell!  Schnell!

Ich liebe meine Mutter!
