"You hear laughter breaking through, it makes you want to fart. You’re heading for a breakdown, better pull yourself apart. " - John Cooper Clarke

Croak.

That’s what happens when three other people in the house have coughs and colds. I’m on the way to losing my voice.

They’ll be delighted.

    If they can’t hear you, you can walk up to them and whack ‘em on the shoulder. Ha.

    What, did they all come home for some of Mum’s tender loving care? You may be losing your voice, but they may have lost their minds — ‘cuz they’re all old enough for you to say things like “Fix you some soup?!? You know where the bloody tin opener is!”

    PS: Hot tea with honey, lemon, and bourbon whiskey can help feel better. How much better depends on how much bourbon you use.

    How, in the name of buggery, can you lose something that big?

    Honey and hot milk.

    I hope that you’re feeling better soon. Please read the comment I left on the last post, it might be of help about the house.

    Thanks for the advice, and nicely put, Vicus. I hope you never blog about feel slightly ill.

    It’s just a croak and nasty cough, not man ‘flu.
