Well,I guess it had to happen..everyone I've been near the past 2 weeks had a cold--and now its MY turn!..throat got sore last night,temparature soared overnight--today the snot factory started full production!..and my stomach is queasy from post nasal drip--and now to top it off,I got the hiccups after supper,and they refuse to quit!...GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!! But I may be luckier than the others,I am feeling better than they did 2 days into it--they have been sick all week,and are only slowly getting better..maybe the honey I've been using has helped,it sure works on a sore throat,and I've read it boosts immunity and kills viruses ..hope it kicks this ones ass soon,I'm tired of being sick!..I was hoping it would keep me cold free,but I guess this virus is a tough one.. I stopped at the "medicine" store on my way home tonight..bought a bottle of "cough syrup"..(made by Southern Comfort! )..I didn't drink on new years eve,so tonight I'm drinking DOUBLE to make up for it!.. I'll make a few hot toddies,and add some honey,and stumble off to bed soon..hopefully when I wake up it'll be about over..this 60+ degree weather is tits for working outside,figures I'm too sick to enjoy it..have lots of work to DO too!. I think the unusually warm weather has got a LOT of folks sick here--in Rhode Island they closed a lot of schools due to a menningitis breakout!..and everyone seems to be coughing and sneezing around here..Christmas and Thanksgiving are also partly to blame--everyone imports their germs all over and they give them to YOU!...Happy Holidays my arse!..
