Feeling Better Metrics

conversionI’m feeling better today. Better enough to have developed an unscientific way to measure how much better I feel.

According to these calculations, I’m 70 points better today than yesterday:

Awakened at 9 a.m. by the tornado siren, I moved quickly to the basement. Once downstairs, I couldn’t stop myself from throwing a load of laundry into the washing machine. (10 points)

Drank two cups of coffee with milk. While this did not taste like the nectar of the gods, it did not make me feel nauseated. (20 points, 10 per cup)

Sat upright on the couch all morning. At noon, went upstairs to office and turned on computer. (5 points)

Summoned enough brain power to complete Sunday’s New York Times crossword puzzle. (15 points)

Answered email, balanced checkbook and posted this list. (20 points)

Now I’m going to take a nap.
