On headcolds and misery…

At what point during the course of a cold does wine serve as a better medication that Robittuson?

I think I have found that point.

My nose is jammed full of nasty. I can’t really hear that well. My head [still] feels like it’s in a vice. Lips chapped. Coughing and sneezing are incessant.

Yeah, I full on have a cold.

My husband has patiently been feeding me Dayquil, Nyquil, Gatorade, and chicken soup for two days. Hangover from NYE? Hardly. I’m pretty sure I got hit by a truck the other night. At least, that’s how I feel.

So after depleting our supply of Dayquil, I have started in on the Aleve and Robittuson. I can take up to 6 doses in one 24-hour period. Something tells me that’s not going to do much good.

And out came the pizza and reisling. I can’t really breathe which means I can’t really taste much of anything, but damn. That pizza was amazing. All four slices of it. And the wine is going down really smoothly.

I still cannot use my nose for anything other the “schnucking” and breathing out my mouth is both disgusting and painful.

But the wine seems to be working its magic.
