Woe Is Me





I have a man-cold.  As everyone knows, this is far worse than just an ordinary cold.  My nose is streaming, my head hurts, I have a sore throat and no doubt it will spread to my sinuses.  I have super soft tissues and Paul is making me soup. I’ll be strong and put on a brave face, give me a week or two and I’ll probably be OK.

  1. When I get a man-cold - which isn't very often - my wife rubs Vick vapour rub into my chest. Perhaps Paul can do the same for you? Anyway... I hope you're feeling better soon.

  2. I've just washed the keyboard with a disinfectant spray.
    Was it the walk back from the Dumb Post, or have you been too near little school kids?
    Re-sprayed.

    1. There were quite a few school girls in the theatre last Thursday. More likely than the pub, alcohol kills germs after all.

  3. I see you are a lover of Lemsip. It is the farmer's answer to a cold.

    1. I don't know whether it makes me feel better or not. I'd rather have a glass of whisky but not a good idea to mix the two.

    1. Man-colds are worse than ordinary colds.

  5. A wise old friend always told me that if you take every cold remedy known to mankind, your cold will last for 14 days. If you take nothing at all it will last for two weeks. You have my sympathy.

    1. I'm hoping it will only be a week, or if I'm lucky just seven days.
