I have come down with the common cold.
It's horrid to be flu-y at the best of times; but with the second and final week of "The Truth" beginning tonight, it's positively nasty.
I've had a couple of near misses with colds in the past couple of months, and I've discovered that getting stuck into some good quality orange juice has been the best medicine. Consequently I stopped off at the supermarket last night to pick up two litres of Berri "Orange + Iron", as I figured as a woman with a low red-meat intake, it couldn't hurt to boost the Fe levels a bit as well.
I drank about half of it last night, and will scoff the rest (and hopefully something with pseudo-ephedrine in it) this evening before the show. Until then I shall remain a dope-eyed, sluggish, sniffly excuse for a human being.
Unless of course, someone has a magical relief for the common cold. Failing that, you could amuse me by describing times when you were inappropriately or inadvisedly ill.
