Alright see? No designs in this one... But I still have to come up for something for Illustration Friday. The topic is TEA, so I'm giving that some thought... well as much thought as I can with Vicks in the brain -

I'll explain.

It’s Friday. Holy cow. I didn’t even realize it was Friday. I have been so sick with this freaking cold since Monday that I’ve lost track of time. I think I caught it from KathyHowe cause it sure sounds like what she had and I made her a poem about being sick so yeah, I think that’s where I got it.

Last night my cough was so bad that I was waiting for little chunks of my lungs to start coming up. Really. I was looking in my hand afterwards for any remnants.

I believe the “cough” is the worst part of the cold. Unless of course you have special bonuses like an earache or something. Nothing besides an toothache is worse than an earache. But the “cough” makes you shake and want to puke and that just adds to the misery.

I stayed home Wednesday to try and recover. Slept most the day away, I did. In fact, I’ve slept a lot during this cold. Last night, Earl asked me if I was going to my class. I of course was not, but it made me realize for the first time since Tuesday that I had not so much as thought of class or exercise. I worked out Monday morning and Monday night, even though I felt this thing in my chest coming on. But the days and nights were just too foggy and I have been so preoccupied with feeling like shit. Exercise never ever crossed my mind. I find that fascinating.

I’ve watched more American Idol than ever and even watched that Skating With Celebrities. May I say that Kristy Swanson and her partner did an outstanding job last night.

So. That’s about it. Colds make everything so complicated. I keep forgetting that I cant eat a cough drop yet because I'm still drinking tea. The consequences would be disgusting. And I want some SOFT tissues dammit. Ones with lotion in them. Is that too much to ask for? I took some Vicks 44, or 45, or whatever its called and now I have total space head. Its even hard to type. That stuff makes you very la-la-ish.

Its kinda nice.

You don't know how many times I have gone back and corrected my typing on this one.
