Thanks to Nyquil I slept almost 16 hours last night, which probably helped. I have spent most of the day lying in bed contemplating my various ailments, which is not very pleasant. However I did not even have the energy to knit (which is how you know I'm really sick.)
Then a friend recommended a remedy. It involves green tea, honey, lemon juice, salt, and a splash of strong liquor (I used rum) and she said "don't skimp on the salt and the rum!" (They are supposed to kill bacteria. It is the most vile-tasting concoction I have ever swallowed in my life, but it seems to have helped. I sat up, watched True Grit, and took out my knitting. (I stocked up on movies at the library this weekend, which turns out to have been a good thing!)
|A strange lineup. Suitable for a witch's brew producing vile, unspeakable concoctions.|
I do not recommend this brew to anyone with a weak stomach or a strong gag reflex! However it does seem effective.
I am hoping I am well enough to go to school tomorrow. I've got lots to do this week!
