Sick in bed

Spent the better part of the day in bed today with some kind of cold or something. It all started Tuesday where I was feeling a bit under the weather then blew up into full blown nasal drip and aches and pains. So I got to wondering (as someone with way too much time on his hands does)... if your nose is draining all day, is that fluid coming from your brain? And if it is, does that mean your brain is shrinking from loss of all that fluid? And if you were to add a cold cup of water to your brain at some point, would that make everything better?

I'm drinking lots of hot tea because I heard that tea is good for you (unlike a few doses of Old Grandad Whiskey which is REALLY good for you). Maybe my brain can't tell the difference between cold water and hot tea. It's kind of fun playing games with my brain.

Of course, I was kind of hoping that if my brain was indeed draining, then hopefully all the stupid stuff would be leaking out and not the good, happy stuff. It reminds me of the old days when doctors would take a leech to a vein so that all the bad stuff in your body would come out with the blood. Has anyone coined the term "brain leeching" yet?

Rest assured that if you see me walking around, blowing my nose constantly and there's a big grin on my face, you can bet your four quarts of toe jam that my brain leeching is working.

That said, I can't wait for the winter months and all those runny noses.

Sorry to learn that you are sick. I had the yuck for the last week and a half, but I think it is letting up finally. Now it is going through the rest of the household.

Dropping by kleenex and chicken soup,
