strange elixir

hurray for august 1st!

this is the first day of the month of my FIFTIETH year!!

i know how i am usually SO annoyed with those people who insist on a 'birth month' instead of a simple birthday...yeah. you really ARE that special (snarl).

he he. for some reason, it strikes me that after 50 freaking years, i might actually deserve a birth month this time around....hmmm. ya think?

the good news is that the bad goop i have been sick with seems to be pretty much over with. still a tiny bit queasy, but after tons of advice

go to the doctor!

eat yogurt!

stay hydrated!

go to the doctor!

i found myself relying heavily on my own sense of my own body, AND of course dr. google.

dr. google is good and evil, as we all know.

i mean SURE, he did convince me for awhile that i might have colon cancer.

but then later, he taught me how to make this fantastical cocktail

that, my friends, is a mixture of 1/2 T. apple cider vinegar and 1/2 T. of honey in a cup of warm water.

that, my friends, is my newest substitute for coffee, which i have not had since last week.

that, my friends, is kind of a *pow* thing to drink at first, but after a bit, not too darn bad.

it cures arthritis.

it cures stomach ailments.

it makes your skin better.

it makes you skinny.

or so dr. google says :)) ha ha.

it may or may not have helped to make my innards feel like they were not falling out! ha. i will give it the benefit of the doubt...because 'old wives tales' are new school.

and that is what i know.

happy wednesday!

This is very funny, well not that you were sick, but I to love Dr. Google-he is always so helpful with self-diagnosis.

I guess we're going to have to agree to disagree on the whole Birthday Month. Except the part where this is yours. :-)
