The cure for the common cold
Anybody got one? A cure, that is.
I have come down with ... something. Sinus headache, sneezing, sore throat, general malaise. And I have to put in a full day at the office today, and then work a special adoption event all weekend.
I took some Nyquil last night and within an hour was shivering so hard I thought my teeth were going to rattle out of my head. I don't know if it was because of the Nyquil or because of the cold, but the Nyquil did knock me out enough (finally) to get a good night's sleep. Well, except for the waking up and moaning from the sore throat part. So then I got a cough drop and went back to sleep, hoping that I didn't aspirate the cough drop and choke to death. NOT what I want in my obit, thankyouverymuch. Dying from a cough drop is just so ... lame.
Chocolate milk is helping with my sore throat, but my other sick-time standards (coke with ice, saltine crackers) don't even sound good right now, so if anybody's got any favorite shaky-stomach foods, I'm all ears.
It's gonna be a long weekend.
