I Caught a Cold

Which is ironic since yesterday morning I told Wendy: "It's amazing I haven't caught a cold yet since Jerry was sick last week and all my students are sick." Then, BAM! I wake up today with a sore throat, drippy nose, and all around ickiness. And actually, it kinda started yesterday, but I didn't really notice the sore throat so much since I drank plenty of cold beer while we watched afternoon football with some friends, but this morning was the beginning of the true, full "ick."

However, it's just a head cold, so I took some cold medicine and I am at work (hey, I spent most of my weekend reading papers so I am GOING to be in class in order to return that work to my students -- I didn't get all caught up for nothing).

And tonight? We bowl! It's going really well in this league so far, despite our original reservations about it. Currently, our team is in 5th place, and Jerry won "Bowler of the Week" after his performance last week. So, now everyone on my team has earned that distinction except for me. I guess it's time to step up my game. Although, with this cold medicine running through my veins, making me a bit loopy, I don't know if tonight will be "my" night. Well...maybe a few beers will counter-act that cold medicine, right?

Congratulations to Jerry. Maybe the medicine will help with your game.

Wes said...

Atta girl!! Don't let a little head cold keep you from the (beer) bowling!!

AnthonyP said...

The only reason you caught that cold is b/c of what you said to Wendy ! Feel better.

Laurel said...

For some reason I LOVE drinking beer when I have a cold.

Who knows? Maybe this will be your best night yet! Have fun!

SJ Goody said...

I agree with Jess - a "looped" post is in order! HAH!

MCM Mama said...

Cassandra said...

You know what probably would have prevented this? Saying you haven't gotten sick yet AND THEN (here's the kicker:) knocking on wood. For real. It works. My mom swears by it. And I don't mess with Mom, because when I do, I get a cold.

Lisa Slow-n-Steady said...

Get well soon!

teacherwoman said...

Sorry to hear you aren't feeling so well! That is no fun at all. But, Cassandra is right. maybe you should have knocked on wood after you said that?!

Carly said...

I hope you feel better!

MN Mom said...

Have you ever tried Air Borne for a cold. It is great! Also take Musinex DM to keep throat junk loose.

Maybe if you sneeze hard enough the pins will all fall down! :)

I think beer just enhances the medicine-head feeling. :)

ws said...

I hope you didnt catch my germs and that you feel better soon though cold medicine can be kind of fun, right.

J~Mom said...

I hope you feel better!!

Too bad about the cold. I'd say that I was worried about Rylee but it was too cold in there for any germs to survive and spread to others!
