If you've been hearing a loud, terrible, hacking cough followed by what seems to be an endless amount of sneezes from up north, there's a perfectly good explanation for it. I don't know how but it seems a nasty cold has taken up residence inside of me and now it refuses to vacate the premises.
If I'm not sneezing, I'm coughing. If I'm not coughing, I'm sneezing. Sometimes both happens-- I'll cough and I'll sneeze. Do you have any idea how painful it is to sneeze and cough at the same time? Oh, it's awful! Both my nostrils are blocked and I have the worst sinus pain. My nose is sore from all the blowing and the cough that I've developed has turned my voice into someone who could easily be mistaken for Big Ang from Mob Wives.
I did a shot of Nyquil, after all it is "The Nightime Sniffling Sneezing Coughing Aching Stuffyhead Fever So You Can Rest Medicine." It says so right on the bottle. I filled the little shooter cap right up to its rim with the liquid medicine. Pretending it was a shot of tequila I said, salud, and down the hatch it went. Guess what? It didn't let me rest, not even for one damn minute! I was sneezing and coughing throughout the entire night. The makers behind NyQuil lied! How could they? I really ought to send them a scathing email. The next day I tried Advil Cold & Sinus which promised not only drowsiness but excitability. To be honest I wasn't too sure what that meant. Hmm, did it mean I would break out singing and dancing or was it more of a feeling, such as the excitement I feel when I realize the new Chanel handbag is going to be released soon?! Long story short nothing happened that night. I was neither feeling drowsy nor was there any type of excitement on my end.
So these past couple of days I've been trying to starve this cold of mine. You know what the worst part is? I can't even sleep this damn thing off. I lay in bed with a post nasal drip....Well there was that one night I was sleeping semi-peacefully only to be awoken by my own sneeze. Oh God, why me? Please go away flu.....someplace far, far away.
