Ruh-roh! I feel a cold coming on. Maybe even a flu. And I know that I’ve said this before, but this time I really mean it. I. CAN. NOT. afford to get sick right now. I have a baptism to plan, a book fair to run, a campaign to win, and doctor’s appointments to attend. So…many…doctors.
It all started last night. I was sitting in Joshua’s pack meeting (that’s pacK, not PAC) feeling just fine, when all of the sudden my molecules started to ache. Every. Single. One of them. Then my head starting feeling kind of buzzy. And not in a good way. The noise of a thousand boys echoed and swished in my ears. I no longer felt empathy for the poor pack leader trying to control them. I just wanted my fuzzy blankie.
Once we escaped the pack meeting, I returned home and began mounting my defense against the oncoming illness. I poured peroxide into my ears. I know, I know, but desperate times call for desperate measures. This morning I put Tea Tree Oil in my shower. For breakfast, I had garlic, mega-doses of vitamin C, and echinachea, all mixed in with butter, spread on toast, and washed down with chlorophyll. It was deLISH!
I spent 20 minutes outside in the sun, avoiding housework producing vitamin D.
And now? I feel no worse than I felt last night, but no better, either. I can feel the nasty little viruses plotting their next move. And I am out of ideas.
So tell me, what else can I do to fend off this cold? What are your favorite voo-doo cures? Because I will try them all. I will even send you pictures for the right price.
