Everyone Is Down For The Count Except Me

The whole house is sick with a virus / cold / change of season blahs…. very strange. I have watery eyes, and the beginning of a tickle in my throat so I may be the next one to fall… could be bad pollen infiltration or more likely nasty bacteriasuma (made that up) invading the area. We hear that lots of people have succumbed. So we are popping Vitamin C, eating raw vegetables and consuming scotch to ward off the devil illness.

Ever been in a house full of very tired slug people? It’s a challenge to keep one’s spirits up. But I am brave and determined. 🙂

Now where did I put that TV remote?

I had a cold this week…bad sinus stuff. I used a petty pot…works wonders. Is not pretty but very effective. I wonder if you could use scotch in one?

I always use scotch in my petty pot… after just a couple of applications I feel no pain whatsoever. Highly recommended!!!

I thought it was a neti pot….? (but, seriously, if helps my sinuses). Watched a rerun of Dr. Dyer on PBS the other day, he’d advise positive affirmations like I AM HEALTHY. Try that in a toast to the Pollen gods, or the microbial bacteriasuma gremlins, with a slice of lemon or lime in the scotch to ward off scurvy, and pump up the immune system!

Neti might just be the right term…. I was just guessing. My sister swears by hers for relief… Me, just a jigger of Dewars does the trick:-)
