Sick and... Orange??

So Tuesday I woke up with a little tickle in the back of my throat. I grabbed a bottle of Sunny D and headed to class, not really worried. By the time class started, an hour and a half later, I was drippy, sneezy, sore and congested. I headed home, hopped in my car and went in search of drugs and OJ.

Back at home, I promptly dosed myself with some Aleve Cold and Sinus (this stuff works miracles and it doesn't make me sleepy or wiggy) and drank nearly all of a carton of orange juice. I finished the carton on Wednesday and am back on Sunny D. (Hey, it's got Vit. C too)

I was joking with D that if I were to slit my wrists, oranges and tangerines would come out instead of blood. I think I've drank more orange juice in the past three days than I have in my entire life.

I'm feeling better today. Still a bit congested and my voice is off, like it wants to stop working but hasn't quite quit, but I'm not shaky and loopy like I was yesterday.

Send me healthy thoughts, I've got a halloween party to go to on Saturday!

Feel better soon!

When my sister was born, there wasn't all this fancy formula stuff. If you wanted the kid to get enough vitamin A, you had to mix pureed carrot into the formula. My sister turned orange, it was so funny.
