Grumble, Cough, Hack, Spit


Saturday evening I started developing a sore throat and thought it was probably due to the huge amount of tree pollen that's been blowing around. Yesterday I woke up with a cough and all day I had a nasty taste in my mouth, which was only ameliorated with some 18 year old Elijah Craig Bourbon, neat.

This morning I woke up with no voice, so I called in sick. Aside from the persistent drip, coughing, and hacking, I feel mostly OK. Hopefully I'll be able to go into work tomorrow. Last Friday I received a couple of DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem gateways for evaluation and I'd like to get working on that.


So much for it being allergies. About an hour after I posted this it started getting worse. I definitely have something.

Sounds like you got what I had. Nasty cold virus going around. My cough still hasn't fully gone away, even though everything else is OK.

What's the Jewish attitude to swine flu?

What you need here is not some ultra refined liqueur liquor. You need a dark overproof rum that's true to its origins and history, served neat. That'll cut through any gunk, cure any secondary infections, and if it doesn't cure the primary infection you won't care anyway.

Best wishes,
Don Armstrong

Now that's funny.

Not a fan of rum, though I've never had the good stuff. I'll stick with my Kentucky corn squeezins'.
