I Don't Like Summer Colds! :P
« on: July 30, 2014, 01:18:09 AM »
As Week 2 of the Summer Cold From Hell ends, I've come to the conclusion that Colds Belong To Winter!

I've got an idea!  :) If enough people agree with me, then perhaps a Treaty could be made with our Good Friends Down Under.  ;)
We could sent our mates our Summer Colds when they are in their Winter Season!   8)
Of course we would reciprocate. ;)

What do you think?  ???

Anyone? Anyone? ???

In case you don't know, I really do not like Summer Colds! :P

Cheers, Jay

Summer colds are the worst. They seem to last longer than summer.

It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it.

I guess that's why I toughed it out for a week before taking anti-biotics. I thought it would pass.
Into week 3 with a cough that could knock my fillings out!

I went three years that I ate raw garlic with most every dinner meal. Never got sick during those three years, but I was tired of people complaining about the garlic smell at work, so I stopped. That place, the flu would start at one end of the shop and work it's way to my end until everybody was sick. People came to work sick, because they could not afford a "short paycheck". That and "Misery Loves Company!" or so I've been told.

Sorry to hear about the summer misery, FOKKERJ  and I hope you shake it off properly soon. The bane of my early summer is hay fever, but that just finished .

No takers yet for your inter-hemisphere exchange  scheme, I notice. Pity.

Best wishes
Nigel

Sorry to hear of your summer misery Jay, but you can keep it where it is, I have just got over our winter flu (took two weeks) but my wife is still struggling with a nasty chest cough, so, it doesn't matter where we live it is a virus we can't escape.

Thank You for your kind words Nigel.  :)
Between Winter Colds and the rest of the year allergies, I never know when I'm leaving one and heading into the next! ???

I noticed the lack of enthusiasm too!  :-\

Thank You Des for your kind words.
I hope that your Wife is feeling better soon.

Good point! I had forgotten that last Thanksgiving Holiday when our house was full of visitors and everyone came down with a 48 hour flu bug. Not all at once, but staggered. Good thing that!
My Son spent part of the first night on the toilet with a bucket cradled in his arms. :( I felt sorry for him. I was the only one that did not get sick that time around. Guess I dodged the bullet on that one. So now I am paying the price. I'm the only one with this current flavor of the season.

I did catch a nasty 48 hour bug a couple of months ago. I remember that Saturday laying in the fetal position and finding no relief as I lay there thinking that I was dying I was horrified of the mess that I was leaving my Wife and our Son to deal with. That's a real eye opener that I really must deal with. ???

Cheers, Jay

Hello Jay:

Hope you can shake the nasty summer cold.  Worst kind to get.  Eventually they go away, but; my gosh, the time they take.

Best

Thank You Mark.

Just started WEEK IV of the Summer Cold From HELL! :(

Laid off of the anti-biotix for awhile. Wish I had some amoxycillin to try out after the run of Ampicillin. I'll just hang in there and see what happens.

Cheers, Jay

Hello Jay

Good luck with the summer cold and the Anti-B's.

I can offer you a permanent cure for your summer cold (but I'd have to bite you).   ;D

Regards
Steven

I'm beginning to think that Steve is developing a thing for squirrels ...

Well, squirrels are cute, Terri!  However, considering the emphasis on this forum I think it should rather look like this:
Bruno: "How many rules are there?"

Willi: "I don't know... none of zem have ever been written down."

Here's the one you really have to watch out for... I've heard if you don't keep your head on a swivel while in their natural range that they dive down out of the sun and chomp you full of holes...
