Dear fine people of the blogosphere,

My throat hurts.  Thank you.  That is all.

Yours, Catherinette Singleton

P.S. No, Claude, I do not want any vitamin BJ to relieve the soreness in my poor throat.  You can’t make me, and I won’t do it.

P.P.S.  Theraflu apple cinnamon is quite possibly the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted.  Ever.  Plus it does nothing-except make you want to weep from tasting something as disgusting as that.  Yuck yuck.

    I could have told you to stay away from the Theraflu. That stuff is horrid. I hope you feel better soon!

    It probably doesn’t help that it expired back in 2006. . . -CS

    I hope you feel better soon. My Great Gram always said if medicine tasted good, it wouldnt work! LOL

    Your grandma lied. I could go for a nice tall glass of Dimetapp right around now. That stuff is both delicious AND refreshing. -CS

    Vitamin BJ! LOL. Classic! I learned a new phrase today. HA! Hope you feel better.

    Next time someone tells you they’re getting sick, offer them some vitamin bj. Watch how they stare at you until they figure out what you mean by it. -CS

    Ugh…. GRUH-ROSS!!! Theraflu was obviously created by the vile, despicable creators of Nyquil… and Cold-Eze …. I might as well just place the dog shit directly on my tongue and massage it in thoroughly!

    Sorry to hear you got an icky throat babe.. but hey… it gives you the perfect “non-mean” excuse to avoid that cat lady and her conversations. 🙂

    Feel better!!

    Nyquil tastes 100 times better than Therflu. Blech, disgusting. -CS

    Feel better!

    I’ll do my best, but it’s not going so well right now. -CS

    Try booze…hard booze. Hooch, even.

    How about mead? Would that work? -CS

    Ugh, Thera-flu. Feel better.

    I want to go home and die. -CS

    Apples have pectin. Very soothing to the voice. Apple juice works well, too. Feel better!

    I just read that pectin helps. Sadly, I have no apples at home. Though there is some cider in the fridge. Maybe I’ll have some of that. -CS

    Mother always made me gargle with warm salt water. WHy not just wash my mouth out with soap or something! UGH!

    My throat hurt so much last night that I gargled salt water. It didn’t help. Instead it made me want to throw up. -CS

    Goldschlager. Or any whisky.

    Or both? -CS

    Hope you feel better soon doll!

    Thanks for the well wishes. -CS

    Get someone Jewish to make you traditional chicken soup with Matzo Balls…my grandma used to claim that it cured everything from the common cold to AIDS!

    Feel Better Soon (sleeping is good)

    P.S. Vitamin BJ—-haha, stealing it.

    Like some random person off the street? How would that work? “Excuse me, are you Jewish? Great! Can you make me some matzo ball soup and bring it over to my house?” I’m pretty sure they’d just roll their eyes at me and walk away. -CS

    Get well soon!!!

    I’ll do my best. -CS

    you have to try these ginger beers (they aren’t alcoholic) they are kinda strange tasting but they work like a charm. i think you would find them in the organic section of your local kroger.

    My local Kroger is located in Chicago. We don’t have those in Maryland. Maybe I’ll have to take a trip to Trader Joe’s to peruse the aisles. -CS

    hey take care.. hope you are feeling better by now

    btw VitaminBJ, you are the queen when it comes to humor 😀

    I have to Claude the credit for the vitamin bj thing. Not sure where on earth he came up with it, but it cracks me up every time. -CS

    I dont know how you can screw up apple cinnamon. I mean, they have those artificial flavours down to an art, and it’s pretty difficult to fuck up cinnamon.
    You poor dear….maybe if you get sick, you can cough at someone you hate.
    I know, I know….I’m always looking for the silver lining.

    I nearly peed myself when I read your comment. I really don’t know how they could jack it up that badly. Then again, the taste of aspirin could ruin anything and everything it touches. I feel awful for those poor souls that can’t swallow pills and have to chew them. Disgusting. Almost as disgusting as theraflu.

    I think I might walk around licking some keyboards today. -CS

    I don’t know why you are fighting my suggestion of vitamin BJ. The FDA recommends at least one dose of vitamin BJ a day. I have no sympathy if you refuse to take the steps necessary to get better!

    Screw vitamin bj and screw the fda! I won’t do it! -CS

    Theraphlegm is vile. Whose idea was it that what you really need when you already want to vomit is a big steaming cup of horrible? Not only does it taste awful, but there’s just no way to get it over with quickly, because it’s hot, so you get to taste it again and again and again. Bad, bad, bad idea.

    I tried it once and it went something like this.

    *sip* Oh, god.

    *sip* This is fucking awful.

    *pours the rest down drain*

    If only I had taken the same approach you had. Instead, I drank most of it, until I “accidentally” misplaced my cup in the pantry then never went back for it. It’s probably still there. -CS

    urgh. Just getting over my Christmas cold. Robitussin every night. It doesn’t mention a flavour on the bottle but it’s RED DEATH flavour. Gross.

    Feel better chica!

    I haven’t tried their red death flavor, it sounds cherry-licious. -CS

    Vicks Nyguil, gross, but worth it. I like the shot glass plastic top! I hope you feel better soon!

    If I had the Nyquil at home, I would have spent quality time hitting that bottle. -CS

    From what I hear, mead helps sooth one’s throat.
