Day 197 Dem ol’ Virus Blues

Posted by themirrenlee on 15/07/2012

CHORUS:

Cough up a lung.
Reach for tissue.
Blow nose.

Lift aching head off pillow to take handful of drugs.

REPEAT CHORUS.

Yell at cat to stop snoring, jumping on and off bed, asking for a massage, and just generally being annoying.

REPEAT CHORUS.

Curse like Billy Connolly at whoever runs the Universe to stop testing me because I want to go see “The Cabin in the Woods” before they yank it off this week.

Have sneezing attack.

REPEAT CHORUS.

Tell cat to go away before I stab him with thermometer.

Crawl to kitchen for sugar. Get ice cream, cookies and Snickers.

REPEAT CHORUS.

Realize cat hasn’t been fed. Throw food at him – he can eat straight from the bag tonight.

Think about killing myself to stop nose running.

REPEAT CHORUS

Decide to continue taking drugs until I feel better – or really happy.

REPEAT CHORUS.

I’m just blowin’ the blues …
