Be careful what you wish for...

My lungs feel like they are filled with delicious sausage gravy. Chunky, thick, oozing gravy.

I'm coughing like an 80 year-old asthmatic, unfiltered Camels chain smoker.

I ache everywhere. Even my...oh- nevermind. I guess that one isn't necessarily "illness-related".

I'm taking the day off to feel like crap. Woo. Hoo.

Guess I'm getting that quality "magazine time" I wanted after all.

Cocktails anyone?

Robitussin Cocktail (recipe actually found online):

1-1/2 oz. cherry vodka
1-1/2 oz. root beer schnapps

Stir, without ice, and serve.

Go and have one for me, o.k? I'm trying the real thing for a bit first.


Update: I just realized that I still had christmas cookies in the freezer. Maybe this day isn't so bad after all. Mmmm...cookies. Mmmm...freezer-y cookies...

Update #2: I ate two of them and they were delicious. I may eat two/twelve more. Hey- it ain't my belly that's hurtin' today so shut up.
The belly needs sweet cookie love.

That cocktail sounds disgusting. I think I would just rather have actual Robitussin.

Feel better!

"Chunky, thick, oozing gravy."

I've now lost my appetite. Something I've been needing to do for awhile now, so thank you.

Hope this is a short-lived illness.

Feel better!

Who the hell is -r- and how does Robitussin sound better than a cocktail?

I'll have one for you and for -r-... and maybe a few more. I have the day off.

Mariposa said...

Hahaha! I'm really copying this recipe, it might be handy, who knows? ;)

Get better soon!

Stacey said...

Shh...don't tell anyone but as a complete juvenile delinquent me and my friend did actually get "robo'ed" We stole Robitussin from Sev (yeah we were cool we referred to 7-Eleven as Sev) mixed it with Sprite and drank it.
It was horribly disgusting but an incredible high.

But don't tell anyone I told you that.

Feel better

Robitussin Cocktail?!? What, for people who can't get enough of that cough syrup taste? Yuck!

The Grand ChaHee said...

Is everyone sick? Not you too! Y

ou know, my grandpa used to gargle with Whiskey every night to keep from getting sick--you know until it started to fuck with his heart medication.

Just a thought--that is if you're not on heart medication.

Chiada said...

That cocktail sounds absolutely disgusting. And I absolutely cannot stand cough syrup in any way shape flavor or form. It makes me gag every time.

And it sounds like you're having the same sickness that's been going around the country now. I had it about 3 weeks ago. Now I think I have strep, dangitall! Wah! Just want to be better and be able to breath through my nose for once!

Hope you get better quick.

Suze said...

Feel better soon. Get Mr. WM to make you some chicken noodle soup.

Butrfly Garden said...

Hope you feel better soon. I had a whole week of shitty days off. Would have rather been at work! (Good LORD I never thought I'd say that!)

Get better sonn, and stop slagging on gravy. :)

Sounds like a party to me, babe.

Sorry that you're sick. I hope you feel better soon.

A little humor for you:

Last night my sister and I were sitting in the den and I said to her, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine, and fluids from a bottle to keep me alive. That would be no quality of life at all. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."

So she got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine.

She's such a bitch.


Gwen said...

Ewww. Feel better, sweetie! I considered a "sick" day, but I've got too much crap to do.

Katrin said...

Mmmmmm I love cough syrup!

Hope you feel better soon, and enjoy the mag time.

My bro and I were making spaetzle (a first for him), but we put cheese (three kinds) and melted butter and roasted onions on it. It's a regional specialty from where we're from.
If you like spaetzle, fry some bacon (in small cubes) and onions in a pan, add spaetzle until they are a little crispy and then add some sauerkraut (which you should've cooked before). Yummy! One of my fave foods!

I'm recommending to everyone with the plague that they drink sauntering soul's Hot Brazilian Tea. (Lemon, garlic, honey.) It helps.

I took off work yesterday since I have been sick for over a week. First, my children passed it along to each other and so did my co-workers. Having it going around at home and work you just know I was bound to get it.

I feel for you. I honestly do. Better share those cookies with the rest of sickies. he.he.he.

Lara said...

Feel better! I have a feeling the cookies will help.

You must've caught what I had. Although I gotta say I feel more productive when I'm sick. Makes me feel like I had a good reason to stay in my underwear until noon, instead of just being a lazy jerk.

My husband is currently suffering the same fate... However, his is a 'Man Cold!'

Nocturnal said...

Get well WM, how you guys aren't sick every day in that weather is beyond me.
