My friend Cat and I were talking over email today and the following transpired. I thought it fitting to post here given the weight of my previous posts:
I am sick. Have been for days, and my company insists that I come in anyway so I'm not really getting better. I should be ok by the weekend though at which point I'll be heading out to Langley (ew) to practise with my old choir so we can go caroling later in the month (it's a thing we do).
Ew. That really sucks. Drink some Horrible Tea.
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 thumb-sized piece gingerroot
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 2 large spoons honey
Roughly chop the garlic and gingerroot. Steep all ingredients in boiling water under a cover for about 2 minutes, then drink. You can strain if you like, although I think it works best if you don't. STIR WELL. The honey keeps it from tasting too bad. Drink this twice a day until you feel better, and then for another day or so afterward.
You will need a new toothbrush after you get better, though.
