Summer Cold

Gia's got one.

Which means I'm probably gonna get one.

Soon.

Help.


Of course, it has to happen as soon as the weather gets nice, right?  I mean, dealing with a cold last week when it was raining every single freakin' day makes sense.  But it's been high 70's/low 80's for several days now.  A cold just seems...unfair.

Gimme, gimme, gimme some home remedies that work.  STAT!

2 oz. whiskey to 2 oz. honey to 2 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice. Repeat until you're better.

RW - That's fine for me, but what do I do for Gia's cold? Oh...

Slyde said...

Ive got a cure for you!

It's an injection, but you've got to take it anally. Just close your eyes and bend over.. you'll feel better in no time.

Let me know if you find any good ones! I'm goin on 3 weeks now, it just won't go away! I've done it all, echinachea, cold fx, viatmin c, 456 gallons of liquids, any combination of tylenol, ibuprofin (?), alieve... BRUTAL!

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - you smooth talker, you.

Suzi - 3 weeks!?!? Damn...I'm pre-loading on Vitamin C as we speak to make sure I don't get it. Wait...it's summer up there in Canada already? ;)

RW already took my memory, only I wasn't going to use lemon.
You could also drink lots of screwdrivers.
Hope you feel better!

sybil law said...

Hahahaha - my memory! WTF?!
My idea. I don't know where memory came from... Geez...

B.E. Earl said...

Sybil - He stole your memory?!? This is like a crazy science-fiction story. I dig.

It's probably allergies. Get rid of the cats.

B.E. Earl said...

Jimmy - see remedy 1 up top.

Doggie - That's it! Genius!

Summer colds suck. Not fair that warmer weather still allows a cold to happen (I know catching a cold isn't about temperature, but it's that warm/cold verbiage that doesn't gel)

Heff said...

100 degrees here. I'll trade with ya.

B.E. Earl said...

Marty - Yeah, someone should rename the freaking thing.

Heff - Fuck that shit! Is it humid too? Ugh. Too early in the year for trip digit temps.
