The State of my Throat.


For the past few days I have been working under the assumption that the dread tonsilitis was back after a five week break. This would have been the third recurrence this summer. Which would mean I would most likely have to get snipped. I'm not in a hurry to go under the knife here, even if it means all the ice cream I can eat. Somehow, when you're a grown up with an exercise bike in your basement ice cream doesn't make surgery (however minor) seem like a positive. The good news is that today every indication is that this is just a common cold. The fever I didn't realize I had broke this morning and standing up and walking across a room no longer feels like doing a triathlon. I'm stuffing myself with Advil, Cold FX, Vitamin C and Oil of Oregano. I might even be well in time for the weekend. Take that tonsils. Take that. Anyone out there have any cold remedies they can't live without? I'm trying anything and everything...


  1. Feel better!!!!

  2. Poor Miss Tracey!! I hope you feel better soon. Try a nice warm toddy... maybe a little bourbon will help burn away the fever!!

  3. Try mixing brandy, lemon, honey and rock candy (those shiny little pieces of candy decorated like ribbons). It's nasty as hell but it works.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Oh yeah, you have to drink it!
