You know how sometimes a cold can just seem to hit you out of the blue? I've been merrily rocking out to the Classical Holiday Songs channel on those nifty cable TV music channels, humming Deck The Halls loudly (and quite poorly, mind you, as poor Lulu is tone deaf) as I clean our room and do some last-minute filing.
Headachy, watery eyed, sore-throated misery has just hit me like a ton of bricks. I know this feeling ALL too well, as it's what came upon me the night before our house guest arrived for Thanksgiving (and subsequently kept me bedridden for 8 days.)
Am now downing mass quantities of Airborne, and scouring the house for some kind of Zicam product. Am seriously contemplating the creation of an Airborne-tini (alcohol kills the germs, right?) but have to babysit this evening. Am thinking it would be poor form to show up inebriated to mind an 18 month old for the evening. But maybe that's just me.
Do any of you have remedies you rely on to kick a cold as it's coming on?
