An Anglo-Saxon Headache

I found this wonderful little sketch whilst perusing one of my favourite blogs Speak like an Anglo-Saxon and I've unashamedly lifted it wholesale!

As someone who gets a lot of headaches and drinks a lot of coffee and loves all things Anglo-Saxon it really struck a chord!

"Athelstan! Coffee please!"
"Sorry dear, it hasn't been invented yet..."

Coffee cures many ills, including that sleep-deprived-headachey feeling that last all day long.

But you're an Anglo-Saxon so it doesn't exist for you.

Instead you'll have to look sad and whimper:

"ic dríege mid héafodece"
