Evenign Chaps & Chapesses, I'm usually a bastion of strength against any illness, but this cold has been getting me down since the New Year & I can't seem to overcome it as yet. Walking to work in the rain & drinking copious amounts of alcohol at the weekend probably doesn't help too much either. I've been drinking Lemsip & lots of orange juice to try & get the ol defences up. My dear mother mentioned something about snorting sodium chloride, though I haven't tried that yet. I imagine walking into my local Mackee dees at lunchtime & snorting lines of table salt in front of the kiddies may not go down too well, the local plod will prolly think I'm doing charlie. I have, however, been gargling with salt water & that didn't really help much either, I've heard that gargling with TCP is quite good if you have a sore throat. Does anyone know of any cures? I'm willing to give anything a shot, as long as it's not too perverted & doesn't involve sheep & candle wax, my mates tried that one before. Most obliged, &tc. ~D.C.
