The Jokes on Me!

Remember in my last post,
I stated how my muscles were aching,
and I was sure the exercise was paying off
because I could feel aches and pains
I had not felt in a while.
Well I have some kind of bug
that has pulled the rug from under me.
It must be a swarm of bugs
because I feel like _______.
...................................
My steaming hot bowl of chicken noodle soup,
As I lift my spoon to my mouth
I question,
why is it so heavy.
Instant relief as I swallow the soup,
feeling the warmth
sliding down my throat,
soothing for just a lingering moment,
and then it is gone.
I taste another,
some release returns,
There is a ringing in my ears.
I place my hand on my forehead,
It feels so hot to the touch,
I am shivering,
2 big blankets in hand,
I make my way to the couch,
I get all settled in,
I glance around
and this time my house wins.
Today it can stay as messy as can be.
for when I am feeling like this,
it would not matter if the Queen were visiting me.
And if she does,
I hope she will make me more soup.
It's got to be Liptons,
so I should leave her a note.
I am talking delirious,
so I close my eyes,
and I drift into la la land.
..........
I shall return
but probably not for a few days.
Take care.

  3. Cindy, I'm sorry that you are feeling sick. Chicken soup is good for what ails you...and so is potato soup. I'm thinking of you. Take care, please.

  8. Get well soon, Cinner!
    That's funny - I always forget you have a Queen up there.
    How comforting that she looks after her people - if only metaphorically!
