I was just sitting around reading a magazine, and I suddenly felt my throat getting scratchy. Seeing it as a good excuse to take my beloved generic Night Time Cherry Flavor cold medicine that I bring back from the U.S. (Mrs. TBF says I'm addicted), I did just that. Although I did sleep like a rock for over eight hours, I did wake up with a sore throat.
So how does one fight a cold? I...
...fight the sore throat by gargling with salt water.
...pound Vitamin C tablets even though there's no real proof that it does anything to help.
...drink the blessed nectar from heaven cherry elixir, and...
...whine like a baby so that Mrs. TBF will wait on me hand and foot when she gets home from work.*
I'm open to suggestions. What do you do?
*My cold hasn't yet developed into a full-blown man cold. But Mrs. TBF doesn't know that. Does she?
