The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Oct. 20/18

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “can.” Use it any way you like. Bonus points if you start and/or finish your post with it. Enjoy!

Can you believe it! Linda’s suffering for a cold too so my sympathies and cold remedies by proxy are on their way.
The thing is what can you take to make the symptoms easier to manage?
You have to be so careful with OTC meds and make sure you’re not OD-ing on paracetamol. Most hot cold remedy drinks contain it and so do some cough mixtures.
I must admit to feeling pretty sorry for myself, especially at night, but only because the cough is getting me down.
Food is pretty tasteless, but if I don’t fancy cooking, we can always open a can of soup or something else as we always keep a good supply of canned stuff in the cupboard.
Hubby is likely to get this bug too, so I’m not very popular. We’ve stocked up on lemon powders and a large jar of honey, so that when his turn comes, we’ll do the best we can.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
