Not To Be Trusted With Knives











{October 5, 2008}   Buckley’s Mixture Looks Like Semen

My throat hurts like a mofo.  I was fine yesterday, but I woke up feeling like someone had taken sandpaper to my throat.

I drank water. I drank tea. I drank more water.

I even choked down some dreaded Buckley’s Mixture.

I continued to drink water. I played a hockey game1. And I sucked on throat lozenges.  And, as I type this, I’m drinking Shopper’s Drug Mart brand Neo Citran2.

And yet my throat still hurts.

And so I shall not be writing about the next BC Primer like I should be on a Sunday3. I am going to bed!

Today’s excuse has been brought to you by “my throat hurts!!!”

1Not that I expected this to help my throat, I’m just putting it out there.
2The name of this product is actually “Hot Lemon Relief.” Which makes me laugh for some reason.
3I know, you are totally shocked that I’m being derelict in blogging about Premier duties.

I was googling around trying to see if there was anything out there that would ease my mind about taking buckley’s and neo citran together… and I found you. LOL. Well, I guess if you’re still alive, I’m certain to survive this dreaded sore throat 😛



Beth says:

Welcome to my blog, Jessica! I am, in fact, still alive so I’m certain that you will survive both your dreaded sore throat AND your Buckley’s + Neo Citron mixing. Get well soon!



[…] my blog has been filled with a lot of piss1 and vinegar2 lately.  Plus, I’ve been sick and, thus, whiny.  So I thought that today, you know, for a change of pace, I’d talk about […]
