I tempted the Fates. I mentioned to two people how fortunate it was that no one in our family had been sick this school year. Then Bug caught a 24 hour virus, Pook caught a mild cold, and I got whomped.
A tickle Saturday. Sniffles Sunday. Attached to the tissue box Monday. Congestion Tuesday. Chest cough Tuesday night.
I got up sometime near 2am. to take cough syrup. I didn't notice much difference... until it wore off this afternoon. Oh my. I finally excused myself from Bug's piano lesson to go sit in the car and cough alone. Then I debated whether to take it when we got home, early afternoon, or wait until later. I don't want to wake up at 3am after it wears off. One bad night's sleep was enough. Does a half dose of 12 hour medicine work for six hours? Or for twelve hours, poorly? I suspect the latter.
Tea with honey and lemon. Tea with honey and lemon. Tea with honey and lemon. Two more hours.
