Stupid Colds

Somewhere, over the past week, I seem to have picked up a cold. It just started. This year has been a wonderful year compared to the past couple. I have only had minor colds this year, the past few years have seen me in miseries indescribable! I am combating this thing with the usual assortment of drugs and vitamins. I should be fine!

I spent the day shopping and baking and cleaning. I think I may be ready for Christmas...but not completely. I still have a couple last minute items for Cora, but beyond that the holiday beckons!

So, I got on here with some really brilliant things to say, but I'll be damned if I can remember what they were. I was truly going to baffle you with the truth of my observations. You would have totally slapped your forehead and said, "Damn, why didn't I think of that?" And then you would have realized that I am just a brilliant mind whose mere existence is a miracle to behold. Then you probably would have gotten all jealous and...well, how could you live with yourself for acting that way? It's really a good thing I forgot what I was going to say, because now we can still be friends. You're welcome.

And, of course, you'll have just finished that paragraph and realized that, DAMN! Jim IS brilliant...but it will be a friendly kind of envy this time, since I saved our friendship once, and that means something.

Of course, you may also just scratch your head and wonder just how many cold meds I am taking. And then you will also realize that maybe I read the Bean just a bit too much. Still, it's the sincerest form of flattery, isn't it?

OK, I have a headache now and I have sore muscles. I am fairly certain I have not been sleep-exercising (when else would I be doing exercise!? I have successfully avoided exercise this year, so I believe the cold is the source of my sore muscles.

By the way, can I just say I have the best wife in the world? Yep, she got me a few gifts, despite the fact that she let me get a computer as my gift. She's the best!

ok, a few things First you are quite right I am the best wife ever! DON'T forget that as you read the rest of the comment, K? Second or b you are on too many cold meds evident by the "does this scare you" monster impression you just did for me, forget gifts that is present enough. Third or those 3 little line things, are you sure you actually had something brilliant to say in the beginning? cause I know you and that is really not very likely.
Merry Christmas :)

I think you're right Cora, he just wants us to think he had something brilliant to say. Well maybe he did !! You know there is a first time for everything.
