Well, probably not. But it's still tasty.

I've been super sick since about Sunday. I stayed home from work yesterday and today, and I think I'm on the mend now. I went to the doctor yesterday, who prescribed me "Magic Mouthwash" to rinse with and lessen the throat pain. I discovered I'm really bad at pharmacies while trying to fill it; I couldn't work the drive-thru box thing, so I just went inside and handed it to them. Then I got in the really long pick-ups line but apparently everyone in that line had called in their prescriptions (can I even do that myself?), so I had to sit down and wait for a while. Then I had to poke a screen to acknowledge that I refused a childproof cap (but my mouthwash does have a childproof cap) and that I didn't need the pharmacist's advice. I don't get Rite Aid.

Aside from a lot of sleeping today, I checked in on work stuff. We have jillions of people signed up for our grant competition, and they all have two weeks to finish them. I get to read recommendation letters for all of them! Hopefully I'll be able to go to work tomorrow, as I'm running out of things to do. I also miss going to the gym, but that'll need to wait until I don't feel insanely feverish after walking a few hundred feet. I also cooked dinner tonight, as I had ground beef that needed to be used. A mushroom swiss burger was a good way to feel normal again. Mmm hot food that's not soup. Now I'm at Emily's house; just fed the cats and left them water, and I'm trying to figure out why Mollie is trying to dropkick Sherpa. O.o

This has been a really random entry. I'm going to Sam's house now. Leave soup recipes in the comments. Or something.

If you ever get canker sores, magic mouthwash is the same stuff my doc gives out to get rid of those. Fantastic stuff. :)

That magic mouthwash ROCKS! I was really wishing I had some after I got the sore throat from hell a while back. I've only been prescribed it in NC...
