Yesterday morning I awoke with a scratchy throat, coughing every time I spoke. By evening my nose was running like a spring and my eyes were blurry with water. This morning Lucifer had more in store for me. Aching muscles added to yesterday's woes. Every few minutes my computer screen appears to get a watery curtain. I already finished off one box Kleenex. I was reluctant to take a cough and cold suppressant for fear of counteraction against my heart and stroke medication. But my wife would have none of it and this is what she gave me:
Two hours have passed with no perceptible relief. I shall ask God to punish Lucifer for imposing this misery on me. Y'all must mek sure yuh don't get flu, eh. Walk in the corner.
