How the heck can you feel good one minute and the next minute you feel like . . . well, like crap? I thought you had to kind of work your way into feeling sick. You know - - a little warning. Not BAM! You're sick!! Guess I was wrong. Cuz BAM! I am sick!
I am not ashamed to admit that I love drugs. I know that probably sounds bad. I live in Washington state where the progressive (misguided?) residents recently voted to make marijuana legal. That's not what I mean. I don't do THOSE kinds of drugs. I mean NyQuil, TheraFlu, cough syrup with codeine - - I get giddy for those kinds of drugs when I'm sick. I am not a homeopathic kind of girl. No herbs or bees wax to cure what ails me. Oh no, not for this girl. Give me the good stuff.
And so I will go home early from work. I will take those drugs and drift away into my own version of a teenage wasteland. And when I wake up - - BAM!! - - maybe I'll feel better.
Oh, and one more thing. Did you know that starve a cold and feed a fever (feed a cold and starve a fever??) is really a myth? That's good for me because I never lose my appetite when I'm sick with a cold. So, when I wake up from my drug induced slumber I think a bowl of peppermint ice cream will make me feel even better!!
