bleh

...

Both Robb and I have been sick for days with some kind of icky cough. It's weird because we both a had a slight cold, and then once we were feeling better we came down with this other cough thing.

I've been dragging myself into work, attending the mandatory meetings, and then coming home and passing out.

Robb is claiming that cough medicines don't work for him, but I think that's because I bought him some particularly vile-tasting medicine, and he's afraid I'll force him to swallow more of it. Actually, the stuff takes pride in its nastiness, and has a website full of photos of the unhappy faces people make when they take the medicine.

I'm beginning to think you two need to move. You seen to always be sick living where you're at.

Are you hacking up a lung? I coughed so hard, and with such gusto, I burst all the blood vessels IN my right eye. So, not only did I feel lousy, but I looked absolutely awful to boot! Hope you're feeling better soon.

When I get a cough, I hang onto it forever, and it often becomes violent, racking my whole body. I have cracked the cartilage between my ribs and also broken two ribs with the force from my coughing...good times, good times. Hope you feel better.

Oooh, that Buckley's stuff is indeed vile. I had it forced upon my by some well-meaning hosts while traveling. The other thing we tried, which worked better for the cough, was a rather strong hot toddy. Maybe not so good an idea with hepatitis, though.

Feel better soon!

You purposely gave Robb bad tasting medicine?

I think your secretly a sadist!

My mother used to make us kids swallow a teaspoonful of honey during cold season when we were kids. It was supposed to "coat the throat" and keep us healthy. All we knew was it tasted great!

that cough thing goes on way too long, then it makes the joints hurt.it's been going around.

am i just getting old, or does it seem like every little cough thing takes longer to shake?
