Been down & out with the flu/cold for 10 days (and counting) and here’s the top 5 things I’ve learned:

  1. Love is love, but in a war between you, pillow space, and your dogs, the dogs will win.  Lower center of gravity, not afraid to head butt, & they’re not reaching for tissues at the same time they’re trying to win the pillow.
  2. No matter how many Peanut M & Ms you eat, they will not take away your cold, and you won’t respect yourself in the morning.
  3. Benadryl makes you crave sugar (like 2 bags worth of chocolate).
  4. There is no lady-like way to sneeze, although you will win the respect of all the men in the house by sneezing 14 times in a row.
  5. Writing while stoned on meds only seems like a good idea at the time. Upon reflection, spending three hours to write: œAnd then she discovered something that turned the case on its side because she realized the something clue held the answer to the whatsit puzzle really only sounds good in your head.
