Last week my sweated labour came down with a shocking cold, and was a real pain. I felt fine until friday when I spent the whole day feeling like I had necked half a bottle of apfelkorn without eating anything. Then I spent the weekend sneezing and snotting as per regulations with this disease. I knocked back aspirins, gobbled Schuessler salts, guzzled herbal remedies, but the damn thing still had to run it's course until today, tuesday, I am at the stage of what Dickins described as Great Expectorations. So given that one has to let it run itself out how do you make it bearable? My preferred option is a blowjob, which definitely clears the sinuses, albeit for a short time. However the SeÃ±ora is in permanent headache mode at the moment so I had to resort to the old tried and tested hot water/infusion, with honey, lemon and liberally laced with brandy or whisky. (In fact occasionally I dispense with the first three ingredients.) Anyone got any suggestions as to how to live with a cold? I work indoors with people and kids, so I get them at least once a year.
