Dear Cold Viruses Currently Inhabiting My Respiratory Tract:


Edit: Thanks for the well-wishes, all!

May you not have what i did (do) i've had 1 round of steroids and 2 rounds of antibiotics, and it's still not fully gone. I'm going back to the doctor AGAIN week after next, though this time i'm getting a full exam.

I'm flattered yet disturbed by the number of people who've said that...

Hope you get better SOON...really SOON. Lots of orange juice and good night's sleep do good...at least they seem to work well for me. I know...I would be frustrated if I were having a cold.

Can't do OJ, because it'll nullify the zinc lozenges, but I've been taking my multivitamins and getting lots of sleep.

Sorry you're going through it. I know what that feels like, for sure.

I really like the anti-cold product Airborne. I don't know if all the herbs it says it has in it really help, but it is full of vitamin C and it fizzes when you make it, so it couldn't hurt.

Except whiskey == eww.
Ny-quil does okay. It tastes nasty, but I figure that encourages my body to not get well quickly so we don't have to drink any more of it.

I have been something of a single-malt scotch drinker for a few years now. It's nummy.
A couple of friends and I have been getting in to Bourbon of late, too. Not as complex but nice in its own way.

Of course, I also love the fruity drinks!

See, there's the rub. Beemer is physically incapable of drinking anything other than Bailey's Irish Creme, yet put a bottle in his hand and he'll drink it all himself. Since he's got such a weakness for it, he avoids it. I have only seen him drunk once in the five years I've known him, and I don't drink at all, so there's never any booze in the house.

So I'll ask you, what have you got that involves Baileys?

I must clarify, lest people think I'm unwell: irish creme is indeed tasty, and I will gladly drink plenty of it, but I've never actually drunk a whole bottle. (Over the course of a year or two maybe, but not all at once.)

The three occasions I've been drunk, it was on straight vodka.

Take a shot glass and fill it about 2/3 of the way with butterscotch schnapps. I like the "buttershots" one by dekuyper.

Then layer (pour slowly, down the side of the shot glass so that it floats on top of the butterscotch) baileys irish creme on top of it.

Drink all at once (as a shot).

Tastes like liquid candy!
