See this jar?

In it is a magical elixir that revives the dead.

Well...not quite...but close enough.

I've been felled by a horrid chest cold. One that made me sleep for at least 12 hours a day and pretty darned-near-useless for another nine. You can't do much with only three good hours a day. Those of you who've received messages from me are probably giggling at what I'm claiming to be communications. Those of you who've spoken to me are still looking for verification that that voice was mine. I made the mistake of heading into work yesterday, thinking I could handle it...I couldn't I came home after three hours...and slept for three-and-a-half.

I started taking this brew yesterday...and my word...I was able to stay mostly lucid for six hours (yesterday) and 10 (today). Needless to say, I'll be back at my desk tomorrow.

What's in the jar?

Family secret.

Why didn't I make it earlier?

A mucus-swathed brain.

Now, wait a minute, I don't think family secret will cut it here. Share nice.

My dad's trick was always a shot of Jameson Irish Whiskey in a mugful of hot, black tea, topped off with a giant spoonful of honey. Puts you to sleep, and smooths out the throat.

Alot of these "cures" remind me of the ponce, a supposedly "Quebec" hot water potion of sorts with a splash of whiskey a bit of lemon and liquid honey. Hummm.... sounds so similar to many other international concoctions!

My oh my!

Thank you all for your kind words.

Alas, the potion's ingredients will remain a mystery, else I suffer the wrath of She-whose-height-diminishes-daily.

Sorry. She may be little and cute, but she's a vengeful little person!
