… because I might change my mind.

It’s a NyQuil night

A couple of weeks ago, I got a flu shot. I had never gotten a flu shot before, but my firm was offering them for free to all of the employees. So I thought, why not? They say it’ll stave off an ailment that hits so many in the winter months. No fever. No aches. No cold sweats. No days of drinking Gatorade by the gallon.

Well, I don’t think I have the flu. I sure as heck better not after putting up with that shot to my upper left arm. But I clearly have a cold. And as the day wore on today, it seemed to get worse despite the dosage of generic DayQuil that I took at mid-day.

And now, I think it’s going to be a NyQuil night. It’ll help me sleep and hopefully, it’ll work on my scratchy throat and the annoying crud in my nose.

I guess it could be worse. I could also have the flu.

(NOTE: the Blogger spellchecker is fine with “NyQuil” but disapproves of “DayQuil.”)

  1. DayQuil is no good. Get real Sudafed from the pharmacist and take it with Chlor-Trimeton. You’ll have to show your license to get real pseudoephedrine, but it works so much better. BTW, I’m an OTC drug nerd.
