Gonna be a hot toddy night (Read 316 times)


Needs more cowbell!

    Shit, if I don't start feeling better soon I will be skipping my race on Sat. That'll teach me to register before race day.... Dead

      Whiskey or Brandy? My grandmother used to give these to us when we were sick (in measured protions of course). Tried brandy once but that's not how I roll. Zoom - try loading up vitamin C and b12. Worked for me in the past to get past a cold and on the trails. Since I'm no doc I can't verify the chemistry as it may have been just a psychological helper.

        Try Zicam. I've never used it, but have heard great stories from divers who's dive trip it has saved. You can't equalize if you're stuffed up.

          Didn't a substitute school teacher invent the cure for the common cold? Follow with hot toddy for vitamin C, carbs and alcohol to kill the remaining virus. Wink

              Yesterday was utter hell. Today I feel better, but I'm not gonna be doing my 10 mile race tomorrow. My lungs still feel too fragile and I have a 25k in 3 weeks.

                I am a Doc. A school teacher (kinda) invented the stuff. Yeah. Somehow an unemployed woman cured the common cold, a task that has eluded generations of big research science. Yeah. Right. Roll eyes Turns out that it is all a big marketing gig, that the "inventor" probably was not a real school teacher, and that the company has fought tooth and nail to avoid this stuff getting tested through standard drug testing protocols, a la FDA. At best, the stuff does not do much of anything but rob you of your money. At worst, it may cause harm. But we'll never know unless it gets studied. A hot toddy is where it is at. Time will cure the cold.

                  Evil grin And damn, this cold is fighting me tooth and nail (I'm sorta disgusted and fascinated by the amount of "ectoplasm" my sinuses are dumping). I think I need another hot toddy before bed tonite...you know, doctor's orders and all... Big grin

                    Zoomy, You're still sick? WTF? Get well.

                      Yeah...I did run a little the last 2 days, but my lungs are PISSED. I got one helluva stubborn bug, that's for sure. Not as severe as that flu I had a couple of months back, but the duration is just as bad.

                        To be clear, are you referring to Zicam here?

                          crap. No, Airborn. Too much wine this week.

                            Okay, I have an illicit love affair with Zicam from time to time, and wanted to know if I should take advantage of my accelerated benefit provision on my life insurance. Thanks for keeping me cool.

                              So is Zicam any good for anyone? I've tried it in the past, but didn't find that it did anything...

                                If I take it for a day or so when I first start feeling a cold coming on, it seems to help make things go easier/faster. But I'll freely confess it's anecdotal. I mean... how can you say it made your cold better when maybe it wasn't a bad cold to begin with? But yeah, I like it.
