Today...

I slept in!
Until 10!

And woke up with a terribly sore throat. It hurts to swallow. I've done about 842 throat cultures on "it hurts to swallow" patients in the ER this week and they've all come back negative for strep. So, I'm not worried...just sore. Damn viruses.

I'm headed out to find some Chloraseptic--you know, that red magic stuff in the spray bottle that numbs that back of sore throats. Normally, I would just drink tea and write a whiny blog, but I am traveling tomorrow. I'm headed to New York, meeting a few friends to eat, drink, see a show, and be merry. The pants I want to wear tomorrow night don't quite fit (and don't have belt-loops). So, I plan to numb the back of my throat and feed my face in hopes that I can bulk up my middle a bit. If only I could get the swelling from my lymph nodes to move to my stomach.

Yer phunny, honey.

I hope you feel much better - before you party hearty.

Mate I hope you get to enjoy your time off, you deserve it.
Bulking up makes me think of our old high school motto which was Eat lots. Get fat. Stay warm. That was what we wanted it to be, anyway.

Oh I hope your throat doesn't ruin your fun!

I love NYC. I'm soo jealous, except for the sore throat. Mostly though, I'm jealous of the fact that when you say you have pants that don't fit, you mean they're too big... ptth.Have a great time and feel better!!

I have some fat that I would love to send to you....it is on my ass and stubborn, though. It goes on with seemingly no effort and has to be chisled off with a diamond cutter....

You are so funny. Do you know how many people wish they had to bulk up their middle? I hope your sore throat gets better. Have fun in the city. I'm envious!

Gargle, gargle with salt water. Hope you feel better so you can have a wonderful time in NY. I would so love to go to New York - have never been. Do you have far to travel? I think that the pants will look great - perhaps a pair of braces? Can't wait to see at least one photo from NYC.

Have a great time hun, you've earned it.
For pants that don't quite fit - a safety pin on the inside to gather up the slack should work.

I had a fabulous time! (I just ignored my stupid sore throat.) I came home today to take a much needed nap. Tonight, Graci and I are watching a little football. (It brings out the most entertaining in Graci--she just yelled, "No one even touched you, bitch!" Too funny.) Tomorrow, I'll tell you all about my little trip.

Oh, and the pants...after a couple beers, some pizza, and a hamburgers stuffed with bleu cheese and mushrooms...they fit beautifully.

The Terroni diet.
Brilliant.
Alternatively I could get a kitchen knife and the vacuum cleaner and "lipo" some of my middle-aged spread for you.
Gack!
Imagine receiving that in the post!

I went to New York once and the people there were really rude.

Lainey-Paney said...

your pants don't fit b/c you're too skinny??? Most people don't have that problem. So, that sounds like a nice problem to have.

The sore throat: not so much. I HATE SORE THROATS. I seriously would consider having a toe or finger amputated if it meant no more sore throats forever.

I work in an ER too....so I understand that whole "taking it home" issue. Sadly, I seem to pick up the stomach bugs. YUCKOLA.

Have fun in New York!

Sorry, Cheryl. I tried to post yesterday but had some Blogger issues.
