Now What Day Is It?

Blogger was being difficult about uploading photos, but that's okay because I don't really have any anyway. Unless you wanted to see my toe? It kind of hurts, but there's really nothing to see--it feels more like a cramp. Which kind of reminds me of my first husband's uncle, the chiropractor. Whenever we'd come down with a cold, we'd go over to the uncle's house for an adjustment. I was a little skeptical about the powers of chiropractic to heal a virus, but then a nice massage and adjustment were kind of soothing.

I guess this is my round about way of saying I think I might be coming down with a cold. Probably due to my toe. From what I remember, the explanation on why chiropractic helped the common cold was that viruses settle where the bones are not correctly aligned, so an adjustment would realign the bones and wipe out the virus. The only hitch was that after an adjustment, it would take a week or two for the virus to work its way out of the body. I'm kind of thinking maybe chocolate would be just as effective.

So I figure my toe is out of alignment and that's causing the cold. Unfortunately, I got rid of that husband and didn't get custody of the chiropractor in the divorce.

My current husband, on the other hand, had a different cold remedy. When we first met, he swore by hot lemonade and Wild Turkey (whiskey). (Do you think he might have just been trying to get me drunk so he could have his wicked way with me?!) Hot lemonade and Wild Turkey don't taste all that great, but if you drink enough every time you wake up, you'll sleep right through the worst of the cold. I kind of think I'd rather stay awake and eat chocolate.

Oh, yeah! I was going to tell you what today is. It's actually a couple different things. I noticed on Yahoo late yesterday afternoon that today is National Boss's Day here in the U.S. Well, you know I have two bosses now--the Kids. So on my way home from work, I picked up a couple cards and Starbucks gift cards. (I figured they could use them to buy me iced lattes as bribes.) I also gave them some of my homemade apple butter. They were both surprised and appreciative when I presented them with their gifts this morning. My "boy" said he didn't really feel like my boss. I told him I understood and asked him what he'd gotten ME for Boss's Day.

Today is also my son's girlfriend's birthday. I found out last night. She and my son have been together for awhile now (nearly two years, I think), so I definitely want to get her something for her birthday, but I'm not sure what. I would have given her chocolates, but I'm keeping them for myself. Did you know that chocolates cure the common cold? Yep! Don't fall for that hot lemonade and Wild Turkey stuff. Or chiropractic. Chocolate is the cure. Administer chocolate several times a day, and your cold will be gone within a week or so. Guaranteed!

You're so clever -- I wish I'd thought of the kids and hubby for Boss's Day. It would have been fun to kind of smack them around! I'll have to remember that for next year -- along with the Chocolate tip for this year!

paula, the quilter said...

Yikes! Thanks for the heads up. I'm not at work yet so I can stop on my way in. Whew! Not that he even remembered the Assistant's day, without me reminding him LOL!
My mom swore by whiskey, honey and a dash of lemon juice as a homemade cough suppressant. You're right, in that it just knocked you out -- you'd get to drunk to remember to cough. Guess that might be why I hate the smell of whiskey, scotch and bourbon. Yuck.

Darlene said...

I'm thinking that chocolate cures EVERYTHING!!! And, I think the Kids should bring Starbucks everyday!

mar said...

Cheryl said...

I'm thinkin Wild Turkey, hot lemonade and chocolate and that darn cold will be history. Hey one of our long arm quilters is a man who just happens to be a chiropractor......hmmmmmmm :-)!

I sure hope you get feeling better, Kim. I had a scratchy throat over the weekend, but fortunatley it didn't turn into anything serious. Probably because of all those fun size candy bars I ate!

JudyL said...

You may have missed your calling! Sounds like you could have a future in the medical field! :)

Hope you're feeling much better soon but just to be sure, you might ought to double up on that chocolate.

Marcie said...

Your toe is out of alignment. I think maybe your planet is out of alignment. Speaking of,I wonder if chocolate can cure this global warming thing? Shall we put out a call for volunteers? Oh-and nice going with the Moda!

Katie said...

Yep, Blogger was being a pain!

Go for the chocolate. Definitely! :)

Vicky said...

I personally think cheesecake is the cure for everything! But what do I know?

I hope you're not gettng sick, honey. It's bad stuff going around. I think two or three weeks at home might fix you up real fine!

Carole said...

Forget the wild turkey, try Orange Juice and champagne. In this case you can get the cheap kind as it's being masked by the OJ (half and half). My reasoning behind this is the OJ for the vitamin C(old) and the champagne to knock you out! Works every time ask Connie! She tried it! lol Of course don't ruin the taste of good champagne with OJ! That would be blasphemy! lol Keep the good champagne for when I come over! ;o) Hope your toe feels better! lol

Nan said...

I was having trouble with Blogger, too - I figured it was just me! Hah! I agree with the chocolate theory - it fixes everything!! But, I do like Carole's OJ and champagne - that could probably work, too! LOL!
I didn't get my son a gift for Boss's Day - he's not really my boss anymore, my husband is! (I didn't get him anything either.)

atet said...

LOL...my dad's homemade cough remedy when I was child was Old Grandad, honey, and a splash of lemon. It tasted vile -- but, well, soon enough you were asleep and didn't care!

And yep, chocloate can cure just about anything. Except for the flu -- that one, um, chocolate not so much a good thing!
