Three weeks ago I got whacked by the flu -- body aches, fever, racking cough, the works. Missed a couple of days of work (unheard of for me). Treated it with lots of tea and vitamin C and crushed it in my mind vice and had done with the flu in about five days
Ah, but the cough.
That lingered and last week my doc diagnosed "post-viral bronchitis" -- in essence, I had a cough because I had a cough. The bronchi were inflamed, which made me cough, which inflamed the bronchi, which made me cough, ad infinitum. So that meant an Advair inhaler and round the clock ibuprofen to bring down the inflammation.
Why is this relevant here? Because it has been THREE WEEKS since I've been able to enjoy a pipe.
[Brief pause while you guys all pity me.]
Seems like the various treatments have worked and the cough is all but gone. So, fingers crossed, this weekend will find me in my den with a pipe that's actually LIT.
So . . .What to smoke first? Hmmmmmm.
