Dear Flu virus,
You are an amazing (not) virus. Despite years of science and medicine, you seem to be lingering around longer that what people has expected. The misery that you caused is painful. Since having a bout of you 6 weeks ago, I thought I can bide you goodbye for the year-but nooo..you just have to come back. I can't say I miss you, but it seems that you missed me.
The muscle ache, the fevers, sore throats and irritating cough are part of your grand scheme plan to make me feel low and down. To be honest, I'm not impressed with that cunning method of making people feel tired and sick.
I can say that the honey and multi vitamin companies must be reaping in the big bucks due to your good works. Don't pat yourself on your back so soon though...I'm sure there will be more solutions towards driving you out of my life once and for all.
I promise this will not keep me down for long-I'm planning to ruin your plans. After a good rest this weekend and drowning myself with echinacea + honey lemon, I know I can defeat you once and for all. It's a grand week for us (6 months to the day we sign on the dotted line, 1 year since he proposed and engagement photoshoot), so you better stay out of it.
Till then, I have my comfort food to keep me happy.
no love from me,
