It’s that time of year again. The time when someone in your home will get sick, be it a cold or the flu. In this case, the someone is me. I have been fighting a cold for a while now, and in retrospect, I should have let it take its course so I wouldn’t be sick on Christmas Day. But I never claimed my hindsight was 20/20, so I have that going for me.
Today I have last minute shopping to do. That should tell you just how sick I am, because normally nothing would make me go to the mall this week. The way I see it, I got sick from someone while shopping, so I’m just paying it forward. I can be very charitable that way. All kidding aside (or mostly kidding), after shopping I shall be enjoying a hot toddy, featured today at H&B.
Then after that, I shall be imbibing (there really is no other word for it) Nyquil™. There is nothing quite like the nighttime sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever, so you can rest medicine. Hopefully that will help me have a nice Christmas.
My future posts may be quite garbled, but that’s a small price to pay for comfort 😉

I saw that at H&B…After I finish work today, I’m gonna run out and buy the ingredients for that hot toddy and fix myself a drink! Sounds perfect for a cold night…Hope you feel right as rain for Christmas!

May your cold be but a fleeting thing, the Nyquil provide you with blissful and uninterrupted sleep, and the Toddies fill you with “the spirit of the season, in liquid form”!
And a very Merry Christmass and the Happiest of New Years!!

Oh, Nyquil is the hub’s 2nd favorite drink, after Crown. 🙂

I’m kinda partial to Sudafed, myself. The real stuff, the kind that you have to get at the pharmacy counter. The kind you can use to make speed in your home meth lab. That’s the thing that does the trick. That Sudafed PE crap they have on the shelf doesn’t work for me at all.
Oh, and Sinus Buster works pretty well too. If you can handle the burn. 😀
