One I like....

I liked my horoscope this morning so I think I'll go with it.

On the other hand, I'm starting to get a little irritated now. Still sick. Getting progressively worse. Going on a week now and I'm sick of being sick Goddammit!!

Okay, here's how it works. I get a runny nose. Maybe a little bit of a sore throat, nothing a good sucking won't fix, right? Cough drops you sickos!! lol Ya right. We all know what I REALLY meant Then I'm done! I get better, nothing even worth mentioning.

Not this time, though. No!

First the sore throat. Runny nose. Then both pretty much clear up for 1/2 a day. Thought I was getting better but then Karma said "Psyche!" Laughed maniacally and hit me with a full blown head cold, complete with intense headache. Still, not too bad. Don't like sniffing every couple second - gives me one hell of a sinus headache, but not something that was bothering me too bad.

Next came sleepytime traveling. Yes the congestion has moved from my head to my chest. So now I've got a combo head and chest cold, complete with unproductive cough and loss of voice. Yes. It's true. I've lost my voice.

From all the coughing that got worse yesterday morning my voice was fading in and out by midafternoon and was gone completely by 11 last night. Actually earlier but I pushed it until 11. Was totally worth it too .

Six hours of occasional sleeping and ZERO talking later. Still no voice lmao! I'm supposed to work this morning doing....wait for it.....answering phones!! (Other stuff too but it involves talking on the phone lol.) Can't call off. They couldn't hear me if I tried lmao!! Besides that there isn't anyone to cover.

Ever wake up and you're first thought is "I'm so fucked" ?? And not in the "oh yeah baby give it to me" way either.

Never fear I have a solution for you, when you get to work ask them to supply you with a video phone, after all I believe that the workplace is meant to accomodate those with disabilities in this day of age. Of course if the person on the end of the phone (you know its really hard to type and eat soup at the same time, I realise thist now) does have a video phone and cannot see the signs that you have made to answer them with well you are still fucked. My oh so clever plan may have a major flaw in it. Ah well, I tried! At least you can't get the sack, you now have a disability, you could always blame your work for your muteness, all that talking on the phone did it. Anyway get better soon.

I'll tell ya how to cure that freakin' cold...

Get some brandy and pour about 4 ounces into a glass. Add a pinch of nutmeg and one of cinnamon to the glass. Now, take that glass and set it on the wood stove for about 3 minutes. (Make sure the wood stove has a fire goin' in it!) Put on some thin gloves, so you don't scorch your hand, and take that glass... blow on the rim for about 20 seconds to cool the edge... put your lips up to the glass and drink that brandy down. Wrap up in a really heavy blanket and lay yourself down in front of the wood stove and in about 5 minutes, you'll be out cold as a wedge.

After sleepin' for 10 hours, you'll wake up with a very slight hangover, sweatin' like a "pig?" and feelin' groggy as hell. Go swallow a couple aspirin, drink a few cups of jitter juice, take a shower and get dressed. If that don't do the trick, try it again in a few hours. Sooner or later you'll either be cured or you'll be drunk enough not to care any more!

Update: Didn't get fired! Was told to rest my voice...then came the snickering. What?? I don't talk that much! When I'm sleeping. Moving on...Will, Sweetie, I've been told that I have to suck on something sweet to held my sore throat. I'm just trying to get better!

Solar - that is excellent advice as well!! Now where the fuck do I buy a wood burning stove?! Nah better not even try. Me + fire = bad.
