red nose of doom

Oh my god, y’all, I am sick again. How can this be? I never get sick. Yet, here I am, with my second ass-kicking cold in as many months. It’s not right, I tell you.

*is sick*The good news is that my lovely husband got me the tissues with lotion in, so my poor beleaguered nose can get a break. Since I need to blow my nose roughly every ten seconds, this is a wonderful thing.

I hate being sick. I especially hate having a runny nose. When I was in high school we lived in the Santa Cruz mountains, way up in the redwoods, and my mom said she used to know when I was awake because I’d start blowing my nose. Which, way to recognize that your daughter is allergic to the damned trees, mom. So, yeah, I spent four years in asthma hell, and every time I get a cold it’s like high school all over again. Except with marginally better hair.

  2. I’m sorry you’re sick AGAIN! I know how that feels. In the winter it seems that I am always sick. Not so much in the summer, though I have had those annoying ass-kicking summer colds. Which totally suck, by the way, because in the summer you actually WANT to go outside and enjoy, whereas in the winter you are perfectly happy being stuck indoors under the covers. At least that’s how it works for me.

    Get well soon!
