Sore Throats Suck!

with 4 comments

First of all, whoever thought it was a good idea to prescribe large capsules to someone with a badly swollen sore throat is rather cruel, in my opinion. Of course, I didn’t think to ask if they were going to be horse-sized anvils when he was writing the prescription. And he didn’t think to ask if I have an overly strong gag reflex that makes me sound like a cat throwing up when I try to swallow anything without chewing it.

So I emptied the contents of the capsule into a small bit of cranberry juice and chugged it down. I’ll be topping off this cocktail by chewing up some Tylenol PM later on. 🙂

Second, I gave this illness to Kimmy. So I feel badly and guilty about that too.

Third, I want to write more, because I have a juicy story about a former co-worker. Unfortunately, it will have to wait.

Kimmy fact: She’s a great dancer, even though if you ask her, she’ll say she doesn’t dance. 🙂

  1. I feel ya on the horsepills! I’m just chugged my antibiotic pill the size of a two thumbnails end-to-end myself. I swear it’s some sort of super virus going around this winter…along with strep. If i get sick one more time in the next month, the horsepills will have been appropriate because i’m going to order someone to take me out and put me down like a horse!

    And i eagerly await your former coworker story…though please don’t call it “juicy” cuz i might just gag 😉

  2. Sounds like if you ever have a need for the talent, you’ll be well-versed in the methods of disguising white powder in cranberry juice.

  3. Oh, Lord, I’m leaving before Eric gets here. I’m sure he’ll comment on gag reflexes.

  4. Are you sure it’s safe to come to your house on Saturday? You know I’m going to kill you if you give me a sore throat.
