Hubby has a mancold.






Hubby has a mancold.

I didn’t realize how serious this was until he told me.  I mean, I just thought he had a cold but… NO, this is worse.

He doesn’t think he will survive it.  He’s told me so several times today…

I offered him all of my remedies that seem to help me… lots of vitamin C and my failsafe tinctures.  But no, he thought the idea of tinctures as ‘gross’ and preferred to moan, eat melted cheese on bread and flop around a lot.

After two days, I told him that maybe he needed to get up so I could set up a quarantine and burn the sheets, etc.

So, he did.  He got up, made a circle to the kitchen for ice cream and gummy bear Vitamins, then returned before I had the opportunity to light the match.

Me:  “Back to bed?”

Hubby:  (inaudible whimper)

Me:  “Should we prepare your will?”

Hubby: (with a flourish)  “Just take it all, I don’t care!”

Me:  “OK… now?  Is the end very near?  Because I could really use your new computer…”

Hubby:  (with moist eyes…) “Stop it!  (whining)  Do we have any more cheese?”

Hubby is deathly ill with a mancold. He told me so.

TELLTALE SIGNS THAT WE ARE HUNKERING DOWN FOR THE LONG HAUL

Whenever I see store bought cold medicine and Hubby’s oversized mug, I know we are down for the count.

At this point, I always offer him my brews and tinctures – and he always relents.

Hubby:  “Ugh, I can’t stand that stuff.  That will only make me sicker!”

At this point, he changes into his jammies, pads over to the closet where we keep the kitchen stuff we rarely use, and he pulls out THE MUG.  It is a huge mug I bought for him as a joke.  Except it isn’t a joke when he has a mancold.

This mug is part of his mancold methodology.

The oversized mug and his store bought remedies.

 

AND SO IT GOES… THE MANCOLD DEFEATS ME…

And so it goes.

I was able to take care of a 1000lb animal that had severely foundered feet…but the 2-Day mancold has defeated me.

Just now, I offered him “Healing Tea” made by lovely people whose sole job it is to make really good food at THE WELLNESS KITCHEN.

“No.”

Me:  “You don’t want any Healing Tea?  It Heals!!”

Finally he relented when I read aloud the ingredients.

“Hmmmm, that sounds really good.  OK, you can make some.”

And as he sat in an awkward semi-prone position, slurping his Healing Tea, Hubby remarked (and I kid you not) “It is a really nice night and it would be great to sit outside with a glass of wine – if I wasn’t dying… but the good part is that you can collect on my life insurance.   That would be good for you.”

Oy.  (eye roll)

Yummy, specially made Healing Tea!

A MIRACLE!

Just now, I found him upright at his desk!  2 days he was almost lifeless, rolling about on the bed, but now he’s not only upright, he’s DRESSED!

A miracle!

Somehow, he managed to climb out of bed, go to his car, unpack his computer and sit at his desk – to play a rousing game of WORLD OF TANKS!

He has his Healing Tea in his massive mug beside him.  It is like his war grog as he goes into battle.

I must say, Hubby does appear to be better.

I guess I owe our future to WORLD OF TANKS.  It does seem to be healing what ailed him…along with some Healing Tea, Mother Nature and time, me thinks.

Amazingly cured by WORLD OF TANKS.

    I laughed till I cried! Oh, those Man Colds… stinkers for sure. A Scottish friend of ours was ‘dying’ of an M.C., and ordered his wife to rush to the pharmacy for cures. When she asked him what he wanted her to buy, he whimpered “Oh, just get me a WEE SELECTION”!! Said in a Scottish accent, it cracks me up every time!
