OMG Y'all!! I Am So Sick 4 Rlz!

I could have sworn it was the creeping black death coming to get me, but it turns out it's only pneumonia. I seriously think this may be the sickest I've been in my entire adult life. When I was younger I was sick quite a bit, but as an adult? Not so much.

The best thing about being sick is getting medical advise from all of your friends. Of course, everyone tells you to rest up and drink plenty of water (apparently assuming that you've never had a cough before, and would be lost without them), or recommends their favorite over the counter cold killer. Every once in a while though, you get a weird one. This time? Garlic. One of the guys I work with actually told me that garlic is the "natural enemy" of pneumonia. I can't help but imagine garlic and pneumonia running wild in the open fields of the world before modern ,man, skipping hand in hand until they both realized they had a crush on Lucinda Lou, the cave girl next door. Pnemonia decided that if he couldn't have fair young Lucy, then noone could, and attacked her lungs with unmatched fury. Luckily for Lucy Lou, the noble garlic saw what his former friend had done, and sacrificed himself to knock the pneumonia from her body. Naturally, despite the fact that they used to be the best of friends, for eons, they have been enemies.

Current mood: Sick, duh.
Current listening: Electric Six - I Shall Exterminate Everything Around Me That Restricts Me From Being The Master (Thanks to Fraction for putting it in my head that I should listen to this awesome album again.)
