Is It Hot In Here, Or Is It Just My Karma?

Why is it that, the morning after I say I'll go to the roller derby with rhobike on Sunday, I wake up with a headache and sore throat? Dammit, I will not get the winter lurgy that's been going around my Hebrew class!

Drink a lot, and do not pay attention to the cold. Perhaps if you do not acknowledge it, it will go away in disapointment!

Are we talking "drink a lot of orange juice," or "drink a lot of vodka" here?

I like the idea of ignoring it so it goes away.

Hot toddy!

And ice cream.

Might help. And if it doesn't, you'll feel better about it anyway!

Ice cream sounds good. What's a hot toddy?

You need a nice cup of hot tea, some Vitamin C and some tylenol. And a good book. May not make the cold go away, but you might feel better.

I think after I go to the post office to pick up the Mystery Package that's waiting for me, and do the grocery shopping, I will curl up with that very combination.

I pop zinc lozenges when I feel a cold coming on and they seem to help. I don't care if it's a placebo effect as long as it's an effect.

When this blows over, I'll go out and get some zinc lozenges to have ready for next time. Are they expensive?

I hope it'll be over on Monday. Even though I don't have classes, I'd like to be able to get some work done then.

I'd go with Bodkin's hot toddy. It'll make you forget you have a cold if nothing else :-)

But the best cure is disprin in hot red lemonade. I told Gwyn that before and I don't think she believed me but that could be because I don't know how to translate it into Americanese. Disprin are soluble tablets with aspirin in them and I imagine red lemonade is self-explanatory. But maybe not. It was also known as Tanora here at some point. Anyway, heat the lemonade and then dissolve the aspirin in them. It's best if you drink it before sleep. I guarantee it works.

Now, um, what exactly is a roller derby?

Roller derby.

I have some lemons, so I can make hot lemon and dissolve Tylenol in it. Think that'll work?

I haven't gotten the winter crud (yet?). I hope you can fight it off, too. Some of the cures sound very good, though probably not in combination!

I guess the good thing about science still not being able to cure the common cold is that we still get to take yummy home remedies for it.

I hate colds. A nasty little cold went around central Florida in January. I never get sick and this one put me in bed for a week. Orange juice and refusing to acknowledge a cold usually works for me though. Feel better, FP!

I've been trying the "sleep and laze around a lot" approach, except for the parts about going grocery shopping and to the post office. One can still go to the roller derby with a sore throat, right?

So did you make it to Roller Derby?

I did! Way down in Lynwood. I had a blast! The matchup was The UltraVIOLENT versus Killopatras. The Killopatras took it, 88 - 82, in a very close game.
