Snot, Hulu, and Raman Noodles

loungpants5What day is it?

Is it time to suck on my inhaler or squirt the nasal spray?

What’s the proper trajectory arc to hit the waste basket with a loaded Kleenex?

Why does Hulu ask which commercials I want to watch when they only have three? (Psst, I’m not running out to buy Absolut Vodka, guys.  I’m not running anywhere.  See these pajama pants?)

Can a person eat too many Raman noodles?

When the orange juice is gone, does the whole universe fall into the vacuum or just my refrigerator?

Have scientists ever measured the maximum amount of snot a body can produce?  Could I borrow their buckets?

Are my cats permanently scarred from thinking my cough is a German Shepherd?

How many hours of Pinterest equal a free bottle of Robitussin?

If I pass out in the shower, does it still count as exercise?

Did the nurse record my new doc’s “Yikes!” when she listened to my lungs?  That was sweet.  I’d like to scrapbook that.

So many questions, so little air.

    Thanks for a great post…you stated to a tee my own circumstance. It sucks to have to wait it out. I just used my inhaler and it leaves a rotten taste in my mouth. I also go through Kleenex like it’s going out of style. Just remember, you’re not alone. I’m suffering right w/you! Try to have as good a day as possible & I will too!
    Prior to reading your post, I was also numbing myself with Pinterest! It does take one up and away…for a while, at least. Feel Better, my dear! xxoo Nana

        I’m just falling apart! Just started massively powerful (and large/orange) antibiotics five minutes ago. I’ll check in w/you in a while. Hope we feel better, SOON!

        Mine are kinda coral-colored and not-so-large. Damn! I wanted the Big Guns! Well, I hope they work for you and we kick this sucka to the curb.

    Oh, Sandy, this is so, so funny! Sorry for your hell, but I must say I understand. In fact, my post today is about this very topic! I swear. Only I think yours is better–probably because it’s not my cold you’re writing about. Hang in there. Get well. I send healing thoughts your way.

    Hugs from Ecuador,

    The funny thing is, these thoughts are real and we’ve all had them! I had never heard of a “loaded” Kleenex, but I am adding that to my vocabulary. You always provide excellent material for me to continue dispersing to others who walk this planet! Great post… and feel better soon!

    I’m five days past the worst of the pneumonia – at this time of year! The moon must be hanging wrong!
    My dog is recovering from the shock of someone in the house barking louder than she does – – I hope your cats recover as well – hang in there and get well soon!

    Feel better! Sick is miserable, for sure! (Any tissue that makes it to the trash is 3 points, because you are so far away from the basket even if it’s right beneath you. Sick rules.)

    Poor baby! Hope you’re all better soon (at least before you float away on the Good Ship Snot.)
