Oh, ick.

Not only did I spend my day doing all kinds of errandy shit, like

bringing my smoking hot minivan to the dealer for its 30,000 mile check-up,
lashings of laundry,
waiting for the Fed-Ex guy coming to take away the ugly rug I ordered from Home Decorators collection,
more paperwork for my kids' school,
dinner out with friends (OK, that part was fun)
and general overwhelming amounts of bullshit,

but

I'm also sick. Coming down with something. I don't know what. But it involves a

sore throat,
with some post nasal drip,
and general ickiness.

Where did I get this from? And how can I get rid of it?

I think I'm going to have to squeeze in a trip to the clinic for a throat swab while I'm dashing around doing all the rest of the shit I should have already finished.

Didn't I just go through that whole acute tonsilitis thing? Or am I so sick that I can't remember because reality is just an illusion--or some such?

  1. I'm so sorry you're sick! Sounds like a summer cold. :( Perhaps you can convince your kids to wait on mommy in bed for the next few days? You could pretend its some sort of game!

  3. I quote the greatest writer in the history of the language:

    "Is there such a thing as reality? I've always thought it to be a delusional state, brought
    on by an acute lack of gin in the bloodstream."

    Feel bettah, Poppiest.

  6. I KNOW it sounds gross, but I highly recommend the neti-pot thing. We use one called Nasaline, and it really works.
