I hate being sick and going to the grocery store and being *that* person. You know, the sick girl with her grubby sweatshirt and ponytail, unshowered and sweaty, with a laundry list of stuff to buy. Mine today included:
* Yogi Thoat Comfort tea
* 1 lemon
* cough drops
* super orange Emergen-C
* cadbury cream eggs (you know for a sugar boost)
* New Moon reserved at the redbox
Yes, I am that girl. I also hate how the person checking me out is just looking at me in disdain thinking, "yuck, don't touch me. I see that Mucinex in your cart."
Luckily I have a wonderful boyfriend who also took me out for Pho (delicious anytime, HEAVENLY when you have a cold), then stopped by the library so I could pick up some books on hold. So now I'm in bed, computer in my lap, tea full of lemon and honey next to me, and a stack of books on the table beside me. About as content as I could be with a sore throat and a cough that is making me wince, it hurts so much. Do any of you have sick time rituals? Mine normally included noodles, Gilmore Girls and vicks vapor rub.
Also, any advice on on how to relive really deep chest pain and a sore throat? I'll take any tips! C'mon moms, nurse me!
