Death! Pestilence!

Shawn [of Psych and “He’s so ugly!” fame]: There he is!
Gus [blinking, shaking his head]: What time is it?
Shawn: Dayyyyyyyytime.
Gus [realizing he’s in the passenger seat of his own car]: What happened?
Shawn: I might have dropped 6 allergy pills in your Frosty while you were peeing.
I have a cold!

This is unfortunate, as I really did want to get back into the libraries when they opened up at the end of vacation period. Instead I’ve been sleeping twelve or thirteen hours a night, rubbing my nose and upper lip so raw that I have almost doubled the radius of my open mouth, and single-handedly created as much snot as there is sludge on Moscow streets (a lot, that means).

Excuse me, my five minutes are up. I need to go find another Kleenex.

Edited to add:

December 31: Frozen Icarus thinks, "I haven't done any kind of facial-hair challenge since 2008's Decem-beard. I want a mustache." The mustache growing begins (it is currently in the form of a disconnected goatee until the mustache is long enough to stand on its own.)
January 13: Briullov sends me this link.

Yes! I am exactly a fortnight ahead of the curve! I've not felt this great since I heard Owl City's "Fireflies" (via Pandora) a good two months before WFNX played it. Hurrah!

I hope you feel better soon! I bet Madison could give you and the sludge on Moscow streets a run for your money. We're talking faucet here! Gotta love teething / colds :)

Aww, poor baby. Maybe the mustache can act as snot catcher? ;)

I clicked out to the article. I love it! Although, they are missing three important 'staches: 1.) Burt Reynolds. 2.) TOM SELLECK and 3.) Paul Fraser!!! (a.k.a. my dad)

S.H.S said...

why are your blog posts so BODILY of late? Snot, illness, vomit, urine. What's next...actually scratch that, I don't want to know.

If you decide to turn to the 'stache article for inspiration on how to trim your new mouth-hairs...i think good old uncle Ernest is the obvious choice.:)

Physical, mental, and emotional health do not need to be in tripartite opposition.
