I got a cold and then another cold and then I went camping and my colds got worse and I got this cough that won't let up and then I figured out I could get three minutes of peace if I take cough syrup, except I have to be willing to have dreams about dudes stabbing me repeatedly.
So I was coughing coughing coughing last night between about 4 and 5 a.m. and then I finally cried a little because I was really tired and fucking hell with the coughing already. Honestly I will cry at anything. I have been crying my way through a re-watch of the Sex and the City seasons and I'm on Season 4, I think? And if I were one character on that show, I would be Big's first wife -- what's her name? Played by Bridgette what's her face? She falls down the stairs and knocks out her tooth and I was like: That would so happen to me. Even though I don't know why I think that.
So today is my last official day of babysitting my niece; her mom decided she'd take some time off work for a while, which I think is a great decision, and not just because my corduroys are like baby barf magnets. Anyway today is the last day and I was coughing coughing coughing and then I was like fuck it, I am taking the syrup and then I took it and then I fell asleep while I was feeding the baby and now I am writing this post.
And all I really know right this moment is that there will be a nap at some point today but that I really really really need groceries in the worst way because all I have is about four pounds of bacon and 73 pounds of cheese in my fridge and suffice to say we are all baconed and cheesed out round here. Somehow I managed to pull a curried lentils recipe out of my ass last night and I was like I cannot believe I own the ingredients to place a meal that does not contain bacon or cheese in front of my husband tonight. It will be difficult to go to the grocery store today ya'll. What if I cough cough cough? This cough is like one of those where you think you might barf cause you're coughing so hard. Thankfully the cough syrup has drained my inhibitions and I care about approximately two things right now: that the baby is breathing and I will nap at some point.
