What to do when you have a cold

nasopharyngitis

rhinopharyngitis

eeeeps, scary names

The common cold.. not sure what is common about it.

Colds, we seem to get them now and again.

you can buckle under and they often go away in a week.

or buy lots of over the counter pills, lotions, funny tasting liquids.. and they will go away in 7 days.

So how to get rid of it? Is there a cure?  What can you do?

well it seems I have the answer, and it must work…  

so what is this great tip?

how can you feel better?

pssst, I know.. it is to….

Moan a lot and get your roommates to wait on you..

awwww, *hugs Aimee and Jill*

hope you feel better today!

When you feel punky, tired, achy, sore throat.. tis nice to have someone care. Wait on you, get you things… brush your hair. Make you soup, wake you up to take another pill… 

you give them hugs, get blankets, open the windows, get water, more pills, do their laundry…

cook some really nice soup, check the tissue supply, close the windows, look for their slippers…

frown and take away all the tissues that aren’t in the box anymore, get another box…

watch them sleep quietly, hoping they feel better soon…

look for some nice juice, fluids are good, take away the empty glass and wash it…

wake them up so they drink the juice they wanted.. sheish… smile when they grin at you…

ask them how they feel now.. nod your head with sympathy and say awwww…

try to remember what your Mom did for you when you felt bad.. run to get a thermometer…

darn, sleeping again.. feel their forehead softly with your lips, just like Mom did… 

jump back when they open their eyes and say “not now.. am sick…” sheish..

The trouble is, and don’t get  me wrong, it isnt like they plan for it…

but then they share the blasted cold with you...

like it is a gift or something. drat.

*looks around and moans*… 

darn it isn’t working… 

So.. when all four of us have a cold.. what to do? see who moans the loudest? 

I could fill the rest of the blog with tips, some nice images.. recipes for chicken soup that are really good… 

Ponders that for a moment. Considers the medical explanations for the common cold, what you should do to make it go away…

considers it more, tilts my head thoughtfully.. 

comes to a decision. 

blech.

  2. Sadly no matter how loud I moan I am on my own to take care of myself… perhaps I need to get some room-mates??

  3. I am in the same boat as Andrea … for some reason, if my daughter is with me … moaning just means mom must be getting dinner on the table slower than normal!

    However….*sends you and your roomies a big AWWWWWW* And hopes you all feel better soon.
