This isn't looking good.

Judging by my occasional sneezing and coughing, and especially by the fact that I can't even put two thoughts together tonight in order to write, I have a feeling I'm catching my husband's cold. I suppose that's inevitable, but the timing is awful. Plus, when I have a cold, it's not one of those charming Austenesque affairs where I lie there looking pretty and a little pinker than usual, sniffing daintily from time to time and fluttering a lacy handkerchief. No, it's more like Marjorie Main as Ma Kettle, or - oh, never mind. Suffice it to say, it's not a thing of beauty. I'm not a thing of beauty. And I know my husband will feel guilty and worry about me and try to be helpful, but when I'm sick, I would like to be flown to a desert island and left there, surrounded by books and with a tea kettle at hand, thank you.

I am going to give ColdFX a try. I went to the pharmacy today and asked about it. The pharmacist thought I wanted to know whether I needed the real brand or a generic. I interrupted her to say that actually, I wanted to know whether it was snake oil. She told me that she didn't think so, because her daughter swears by it. I know a couple of other people who praise it, as well, so here goes.

I shall retire now to my bed of pain. Think of me, from time to time. ;>)

ahhhh.....poor, poor baby. Can I get you anything?

Sandra Leigh said...

Hah! (choo!) Thanks, folks. Remember that ad - what was it for? some kind of jeans - where Shari Belafonte lay there on the tv screen, purring, iirc, "When you lose your mind, it's nice to have a body to fall back on" - Boy, am I in trouble. First the body went, and now I've lost my mind. I think it was kidnapped by a rhinovirus. A head transplant would be nice. Or Shari Belafonte's figure. Or both. ;>)

I hope it works for you! Let us know.

Jeanne said...

Let us know if that stuff really works.

Feel better!

Jeanne and Debbie, I'm rather stuffy and sniffly, but I don't know how sick I would be if I hadn't taken the ColdFX. It's really hard to make judgments based on what didn't happen. I think if I'm not feeling better by -say, Monday, I'll give the stuff a thumbs down.

I am thinking of you right now! *smiling* and you are like I am - I don't like to be fussed over -when I feel poorly, just leave me be...a little Vicks VapoRub, some tea, some soft tissues, a magazine or book - soft covers...oh, I almost want a cold so I can do all that *laugh!*

Feel better soon!

(and yes! as to your comment - Deborah Lebland DID write a glorious review, didn't she? I was blown away! -- she bought books to use as a give away on her site - how cool is that?!)
