Questions about Chicken Soup....

Can someone please help me? I'm a bit confused. It's this stupid head cold. I thought it might have been swine flu for a while but Byron reassures me I'm overreacting. It's just that his head cold only lasted 24hours. He moped and sniffled though one day, went to bed and woke up 100% perfect the next morning.

I on the other hand must have succumbed to a mutated version of his bug because since Thursday evening my nose has run like a tap, my eyes are red as a vampire and I have worked my way through three boxes of tissues, two toilet rolls and a super jumbo roll of extra absorbent kitchen paper.

I have also been responsible for maintaining the Australian pharmaceutical industry in this trying economic climate. I have worked my way methodically through 4hourly does of Paracetamol, 6 hourly Ibuprofen, squirted numerous doses of Drixine up my sore nasal passages and rubbed a whole pot of Vicks vaporub on.

Just to support the alternative medication industry I have ingested teaspoons of foul tasting Olive Leaf Extract, multivitamins and Evening Primrose capsules. Not sure if Evening Primrose has any cold fighting properties but God help Byron if I were to get pre-menstrual on top of this already frayed mood.

Tonight I even made a litre of chicken soup with 6 cloves of crushed garlic floating around in it. I look awful, I reek of Garlic and I sound like a fog horn.

I cant see any time scales on the tin of soup?

Does anyone know when I should be feeling back to myself again?

  1. You reek of garlic? What about me, I knew it was garlicky, but I wouldn't have eaten so much had I known the amount of garlic in it.

    Please, for the sake of the whole family (and my hair) get well soon.

    Pre-menstrual would be a piece of cake compared to this...

    It's all about you, isn't it??
