Shut Up

There I go, getting myself in trouble.....again.

I done cursed myself. I don't know when I'll learn, but I just seem to be a bit slow on the up take here.

You see - I've been running my mouth lately. (THERE'S a surprise!) I've been letting everyone know - I Don't Get Sick. Oh, I'll get an occasional migrane. Or some stomach issues but colds, flus and such? Not really.

Until now. I don't know what it is, but something is kickin' my ass. Scratchy throat - so bad that I'll occassionally lose my voice (which is always a favorite), achy, sniffly. Yep - I know the signs.

So I'm planning on a run to Walgreens during lunch to stock up on all that "Stop The Sickness" stuff, and a good solid nights sleep is on the agenda for tonite.

But damn - you'd think I'd learn to just stop talking!!!!

When my throat gets scratchy, I mix up some lemon juice and honey. About 3 tsp of honey and 3 dashes of lemon juice. Maybe more or less for both depending on your tastes. Helps relieve the scratchiness and the pain associated with it.

If this goes into your chest, Run, do not walk, to your doctor's office and ask for a Z-pack. Remember me at the Ogmeet? That crap has been floating all over Chicago this summer. Don't mess with it.

Leslie's right, it's really been going around lately, we both have it. Feels like I've been swallowing barbed wire.
