Singin' the Runny Nose, Sore Throat, Coughin' Blues




The cold that has been running through our family has taken up residence in my head. It's the first cold I've had in years and it feels like a slap in the face. Not just because of the low grade misery but because I've had to bow out on reading my story at Tryon Arts and Crafts School on Halloween night.

Sure, I might be okay to read by then -- but I might not. And as a substitute reader would need time to prepare, I had to inform the folks at Tryon that I wouldn't be with them.

I was told they plan to videotape the event and will have a link on their website after Halloween. And I may just go on and post the story on my blog  . . .

Meanwhile, I'll take what comfort hot tea with rum and lemon and honey can bring me. Maybe I can just sleep through the worst of it.

Sorry on so many levels. Drink those fluids and rest.

I've had so many colds since I became a gran. It's even worse once they start school and bring all those germs home. You'd think by now they'd have a cure for the miserable things. In the meantime, honey and lemon is about the best you can do, I find. Hope you feel better soon. Such a pity it means cancelling what you were looking forward to.

Rum is always a good thing, it'll make you feel better or not care how bad you feel.
Hope the babe doesn't get sick. Hope you feel better soon.
Sorry you are missing out on the event. Still what an honor!!

Don't tell it's that time already, and the snow has yet to fall hereabouts.
