Satellite Sally woke to a beautiful day, sunny and cold.  She relit the wood stove, sipped a ginger tea and put three scoops of bustelo plus one of pinon roast into her 1-cup espresso maker.

She tapped a peach-colored baby aspirin from the bottle by the sink, and noticed one pill that was tiny and white.  That one was Atavan.  Like the worm in the bottom of the Cusano Rojo bottle, it would be her surprise treat one day.

Sally had several things to do every day, a couple of things to do once in a while and a ton of things to do eventually.  But first the coffee was ready to mix with steaming milk and early sun.

Satellite Sally congratulated herself on taking the buyout from KLUTZ when the station started covering less and less of the state and needing fewer a fewer uplinks.  The anger in her had run out, leaving room for rock & roll, rhythm and blues, sky and stars.

A walk or a run or a ride would make today perfect, she thought, as sipped her 'spresso.

Lorazepam appears to have more profound adverse effects on memory than other benzodiazepines; it impairs both explicit and implicit memory.[42][43 (Wikipedia)
