Another Cold

I have a cold and I’ve had a cold for almost two weeks.  I feel like I’ve been a man about this thing because I’ve been complaining about it like nobody’s business.  There have also been days when it’s absolutely kicked my butt.

Why is it I can come through surgery with flying colors and bartend six days after losing my girl parts but I can’t seem to kick a common cold?  Is this a sign of things to come as I age?  That would mean I’m not aging gracefully and I don’t like that.  There is something terribly wrong with this picture.  What’s worse is I’ve been sleeping even less since this cold has moved in.  Yeah, I’ve been a real peach.

Today I feel better but I am hopped up on Dayquil, Alkeseltzer Plus and some Aleve.  I don’t think I should be taking all of those together but it seems to have worked enough today for me to get some things accomplished.  I bet I shouldn’t be driving though….shhhh…don’t tell anyone.  I can just see it now, me trying to explain to the officer that it’s over-the-counter meds that’s causing me to swerve because I’m singing and dancing in the driver’s seat.

I had pictures taken on Friday for some promotional stuff, so not happy but that’s another story all together because I hate pictures of myself.  I put more makeup on then I’ve had on in months but the dark circles make me look like a raccoon.   I am for sure looking my age these days.  Now when people ask how old I am I’m going to have to say 50, because I’d still look good for 50, not so good for 43 but pretty good for 50.

Well, here’s to over-the-counter medicine and a sunny day.  Let’s hope this cold works itself out of my system soon or I may go postal.

  1. Have you had allergy testing done? I used to have year round colds and it turns out that the parts between when the snow melts and the snow falls was all allergies. Then when I got a break from allergies, it was winter cold season. Allergy shots helped a bunch!
