The McSnots were a proud family

What does one write when one has snot and other assorted viscous fluids creeping down one's upper lip, and, to be completely honest, possibly also one's right eye.

One doesn't.

One treks upstairs after a rather grueling 18 holes of golf, the first 9 of which could possibly make it into the Guinness book of records as the most random and inconsistent (and the most snotty) holes ever played, involving not one but three accidents either involving a club, the trolley, or the green and one.

And one inadvertent spraying of nasal saline spray into one's unsuspecting and completely unprepared eye.

One simply refuses to write and maintains that the rest of the first season of Fringe is the best thing one can do for one's stuffed up nose.

One realizes that one can just curl up with a hot bowl of soup, a cup op tea one wishes were coffee, some DVDs, that saline nasal spray, and several boxes of crisp white tissues ready for the job of their lives, and hope that the people who seem to be enjoying the random crap ideas that normally pour out of one's noggin (Really? Is that where they come from? Could have fooled me...) in the place of the current snot-flow, will be back to read whatever one manages to come up for Tuesday, and forgive one for not coming up with a proper post.

One's sick y'all. Snotty McSnot from Mucusville. Let's give one a break.

One has meetings to attend on Monday, after all.


There it is, calling out: E-ext! OH, E-ext. ExtranjeeraaaAAA!

One might try drinking hot ginger tea with honey curled up with a good book.
Or, one might want to do a "tag". Cautiously, I tagged you yesterday and now in your condition I'm wondering if I made a mistake. I'm afraid of what might transpire if you got going on this.

Whatever one does I hope getting better is one of them.

I concur with Angelina but make it with ROOIBOS tea...given the fact that you are in the land of its origin.... And then tonight it becomes ginger and honey hot toddy ... dont be shy with the brandy!

Lisa-Marie said...

One should have the above metioned toddy! Ginger and whisky are lovely together! You should also drink as much soup as possible!

Angelina said...

"hot Toddy" my bad, how did I forget the main ingredient!

Glad you got the saline spray. We now have it here by the gallon at the McCough family in Flusville. It really does help. It's like washing the nose in between hand washings.

Rumor has it that this is the you-know-what-flu, but they are no longer testing anyone to prevent a panic. Which begs to question whether we should be getting our shots or not since we do not really know. Whatever flu it is, it is epidemic, going like wildfire through the school system. Stupid bug forgot that it was not supposed to infect Moms, though, so here I sit on the couch with the rest of the McCoughs and their constant sniffles and snot-sucking-snorts.

Misery loves company so we will be keeping in touch with the McSnots, wishing you a quick recovery...

And OP: where is your sense of adventure and/or sense of belonging? C'mon! Join the crowd!
