I TOLD you, Cignon, it answers the question "Can my body USE this right now" and it sounds like you got a resounding "OHHHHHHH yeah!"
How funny, aren't we all just a MESS.....can't REMEMBER the last time I came down with anything but Lyme disease in MAY.
I survived my bellydancing class, I DID dress, in a manner of speaking....long green velvet skirt and black long-sleeved top that COVERED the royal pudding, hip scarf with a zillion silver coins on it, and a three-strand necklace of HUGE green and silver balls pinned across my chest - definite "GoodWill" Goddess... I TOLD the women that they should just WATCH, although I showed up armed with tissues AND eucalyptus drops, once I started dancing -- not a cough, not a snort, not a drip....NOTHING. Sure enough.....
NOW, I'm goin' head first into bowl number two of GLORIOUS chicken soup (my, MY but it did come out well - trying not to slobber on the keyboard...) and I'm having a TOTAL congestion rebound.....heh, heh, heh, but I did DANCE out from under it for an hour.....Funny how it can just go on HOLD like that.....
But what I NEED is to be back up to SPEED tomorrow. Gotta do six hours at the Health Food Store and not sound like Typhoid Mary and look like LOUSY advertising, but THEN I have to quick grab dinner after I cash out at 6 and drive over an hour and give a LARGE lecture to the Westchester Garden Club....I was booked for this over A YEAR ago! We don't even REALLY have a topic, just MY take on Gardening...so I'm planning NOTHING, I'll just go tell stories and answer a zillion questions, GET PAID NICELY and drive home....oy.
So truly, I've TRIED to have a little TALK wid by dose, "Dose, we don't deed to do dis,[:o)]edough already with da research proje't. (shnarf)"...and in all seriousness, I DON'T need more echinacea, I really DON'T feel like I have an active invasion anymore, but what's left is serious housecleaning...ugh.
Alright, Cignon, I SAW you testing with that chocolate!!!!
(she laughs [:D], she coughs [:0][:0][:0])
This sounds like the alchie corner over here. Jayne's got the VO&OJ, Chignon's got the Rioja and I'm sitting here with all my tinctures in glass of brandy with a slice of lemon....hey, it's an ORGANIC lemon! But I am runnin' more Cleavers and my favorite sinus congestion combo: Lemon Balm and Goldenrod. I just hope I get my nose working enough to go to SLEEP.....
May we all greet the day tomorrow renewed, revived and rarin' to go.........or not.
Yours in a PILE of tissues,
where gypsies and goddesses bellydance
and Healing Happens!
