Oh The Pain.

Okay-  I know enough about the human immune system to know you don't get a cold from being cold.  But never-the-less I seem to have come down with the black plague/leprosy/consumption/cold and am dying. 

I have read many a comment about how men tend to over-rate their discomforts, but I feel sick.  No really.  I wake up with the sniffles or even worse, COUGHING in the middle of the night!  I am used to sleeping the sleep of the self righteous, so this is no small matter of concern to me.

On the plus side, Juanita brought in the firewood.  And made me HOMEMADE chicken noodle soup!

I may try this again someday.



  1. Yep, it's amazing what lengths we men will go to, to not have to bring in the fire wood....LOL

    hope you enjoyed the soup!!!!!

    And get feeling better soon :o)

  2. (Thump. Ow! Huff. What'd you do THAT for? I helped you bring in the wood last night, you bugger.)

    Oh dude... better milk this one for all its worth - my MIL makes a chicken soup to almost-die for, and it's worth every sniffle.

    Get thee well soon!

    (Maybe we'll consider this payback for the fact that you mentioned PAINTBALL on our blog. Do you have any idea how beat up I'm gonna be by the time HCR rolls around??!?)

    Praying for you - kick this quick!

  3. Uh-huh. I'll withhold my usual comments on men being sick. All I'll say is, you had better NOT get Juanita sick!!!

    Feel better!

  4. Sounds awful, but at least you have a good humor about it, and it sounds like you're getting spoiled rotten.

  5. Yum. Chicken noodle soup. Bring it on, and get some rest.

  6. I hope you feel better, but if you are considering doing it again... it can't be that bad. ;)

  7. I hate to laugh an anyone who is sick BUT you really did make me laugh. Somehow I just detected a bit of tongue and check in this tale and it tickled me.........

    Get well soon!

  8. LOL. I hope you feel better. Since you guys can cook up great food...would you drop a line to Juanita that I might be feeling under the weather also. :)


I had to turn verification back on. Ten "spams" an hour is making me crazy...
