I am under attack

I felt it yesterday, but I was hoping it was just allergies.
I was wrong.
I made sure before I went to bed yesterday to banish the sniffles with a spray nasal decongestant. Nevertheless, I was awakened at 2am by a sore throat (and a cat dancing on my head). I got up, found my supply of low-strength sore throat lozenges, and sucked. It took about half an hour for me to determine that the lozenge was helping (and that the cat wasn't going to leave me alone). I locked the cats in the basement and went back to sleep.
The alarm went off at 5, as it is supposed to do. I needed another lozenge, and it's helping. The cats are now fed. And I, my faithful readers, have the pleasure of going to work. Yippee.

(I'm not really complaining. After all, I have an excellent immune system. Unless this clears up today, however, I'll be enjoying it all weekend long. Yaa-hoo.)

Somehow, this is going to lead to enforced sobriety upon you. I don't know how, but it will.

Seth is the next logical choice in progression after me, Ken, and Jim.

There will be booze
Naah...I'm positive that alcohol kills germs. I've seen studies.

"You gotta feed a cold!" Bull. You gotta get it so drunk it can't breed.

What you have failed to mention, darling, is that colds in our house work like this:

Your cold consists of four hours of sniffling, headache, and maybe a need for a lozenge or three. Then you are better.

Then I get your cold and have sniffling, stuffy head, stuffy nose, coughing, sneezing, sore throat, headache, and general ickiness for 5 days.

*SIGH* I'm going to quarantine you.

If 4 hours was all it took, I'd be better now
I knew about this yesterday. I wasn't positive, but I knew about it. It's too late to quarantine me...you've got my germs by now. I hope you don't catch whatever it is, because you already spend enough time unwell. The timing just sucks (almost typed 'sicks' there).

I've got it figured out.
If it's too late to quarantine you, then I guess she'll have to punish y--

AHA!! That's why you lose the booze!!!!

Re: I've got it figured out.
Punishment for me doesn't have to do with losing booze. You clearly have not suffered the full Wrath of Karen.

I'm going to try
I've just asked for someone to cover me so I can go home and be smeggy there rather than smeggy here. Let's hope for relief.
