Man, you are sick!

June 16, 2005

Well, posting has been a bit lighter than normal, mostly due to the fact that I got sick with Strep Throat. As a public service, I thought I’d give you all a pointer or two for dealing with this issue.

  1. If your throat is so sore that you can’t swallow without intense pain, go to the doctor. Don’t convince yourself that it is allergies or that you slept with your mouth open and dried it out. If it really hurts, go to the doctor.
  2. If your throat is acutely sore, grapefruit juice is not your friend. This should seem obvious but since grapefruit juice is one of my ‘comfort foods’, I didn’t think about it. Stingfest.
  3. Pay attention to your habits. I fixed myself a nice big bowl of chicken noodle soup; mmmm, chicken noodle, more comfort food. Then, as I like to do, I ground fresh pepper into it. When one of those peppercorn fragments stuck to my enlarged and hypersensitive tonsils, well, the ensuing dance and running about was quite humorous to the others watching the movie. Not so funny to me though.

Well, that should be sufficient food for thought for now. Leave a comment if you have other sage advice about getting sick.

    If you prefer the company of people more than three decades older than yourself, you are sick. If the thought of a fabulous vacation to Delaware appeals to you, you are sick. If you have more than ten bicycles you are sick. If you are an aging popstar who prefers the company of prepubescent boys, enjoy multiple disfiguring surgeries, and have the money to make any lawsuit go away, you are most definetely sick. Glad I could help…
