I hab a code. I do not like this. I would like to be better now. Coughing fits are unbecoming of a lady. Ahem. Right. Well, aside from that, they are YUCKY! And I feel yucky and whiny and icky and sneezy and sniffly and headachy and dehydrated from the stupid medicine that was SUPPOSED to de-yuckify me. Stupid medicine. It just makes me feel worse! I do not like this, Sam I Am, I do not like this at all.

Current Mood: pissed off pissed off

Double Yuck.

Ok. That does it. Lucky for me, I don't squick easy.

Honestly though, every time I go to the dentist during allergy season, I ponder other uses for the aspirator.

Seuss-y.

Would you like it in the rain?
Would you like it on a plain?

How about with a side of beef?
sitting on a coral reef?

Would you, could you, back in May?
Or maybe on a bale of hay?

In my experience, over-the-counter cough syrup, no matter what kind, is not very good at actually halting or slowing the coughing process. And as a special extra added bonus (thank you, o great spirits of the drugstore), it tends to make me feel like my head's taken a side trip to Mars while my nasal passages feel dry and sand-coated. Cough drops help more, but the relief is temporary ... I remember many times in high school, sitting at my desk and getting very red in the face as I tried desperately to avoid the coughs that I would follow the tell-tale trickle down the back of my throat ... it never worked -- I would always end up getting even redder once I started hacking and couldn't stop. I had to go through this lovely song-and-dance routine because of the school rule that limited water fountain / restroom visits to one per class period. (Also, cough drops were technically forbidden becase they were considered candy, so I had to be stealthy with them.)

Good to have you back, even if you are a bit under the weather. Hope you feel better very soon!

Sounds like it is time to have DH make you a nice steaming bowl of chicken soup.

Hi! Did you ask me at one point about how to get broken Tupperware seals replaced? I think you did, and I deleted the LJ comment email by accident.

It's best to take care of that through your local Tupperware consultant. Technically, they are supposed to repossess the broken seals and provide you with new ones. Depending on how old your pieces are, this can sometimes involve getting creative and generally works best if you are dealing with a local rep. You should be able to look in the White Pages under "Tupperware" for a consultant or distributor near you. Or you can punch your zip code in online at the Tupperware site. Good luck!
