7 Quick Takes: Sizzurp Edition

— 1 —

First off… I haven’t actually taken any authentic “sizzurp.” If you don’t know what sizzurp is, don’t bother looking it up. You don’t need to know. πŸ™‚ It’s some sort of random stuff including cough syrup that people throw together in order to get high. The reason that this is the Sizzurp Edition, is because I got a cold and bought some Nyquil yesterday. Typically, Nyquil does not make me sleepy or anything, so I take it during the daytime, too.

I took my cough syrup as I was heading out the door to work, hoping that it’s “6 hour” time frame would last for the majority of the work day. Then, I stopped at Caribou for a bit of espresso-based goodness. Shortly after getting to work, I started to feel … odd. Dizzy, lightheaded, couldn’t think too well. I had been listening to “Like a G6” in the car on the drive in, so I couldn’t help but thinking that the combination of my espresso and my cough syrup in my tummy had some sort of weird effect.

Alas, all good things must come to an end, and I am starting to feel normal again. It is Payday Friday, so our group at work has decided to order out from Applebee’s today. I *did* bring my lunch, but appetizers sounded better to me, so I will be munching on Chicken Wonton Tacos and such. Be jealous. πŸ™‚

My best friend is on an airplane *as I type* heading to Hawaii for about 10 days. I remain here in Michigan. That’s all I have to say about that. πŸ™‚

Okay, here is a picture of me when I was in Hawaii… So I guess I can’t be *that* jealous…. πŸ™‚

This is one of the most ironic illnesses that I’ve had in a while. Why, you ask? Well, because I woke up Monday morning and felt great. I mean, amazingly well. I had energy and actually bounced out of bed. I felt so good that I texted my priest/friend about it (because I thought he deserved some good news after years of praying for me and my health). And then… by that evening… I got a sore throat and knew that a full-on cold was just a morning away.

I refuse to let this get me down, though! As much as I hate (and whine and complain about) colds! I will cling to the memory of that brief, perfect morning and hope that I may have another sometime in the future!

Enjoy your blessings, friends! For whatever duration God decides to bestow them upon you.

It is still cold outside, but it’s bright and sunny here today. So, I have hope that spring and warmth will eventually make it to my part of the world. And I cannot be happier about that! πŸ™‚ I really want to go out and do some outdoorsy stuff. So, if you happen to have any plans of that nature, please invite me along! πŸ™‚

I have only got a few hours left… Until the official start of the weekend. And I realize that I don’t have any plans. Okay. I *did* have plans to spend tomorrow with some friends, but the plague that I have caught seems to have scared them off. I don’t get it. Who wouldn’t want to have themselves and all of their 5 children infected with a cold virus? Alas, I am back to the drawing board. Suggestions welcome. And since a friend has posted that “resting” isn’t actually in a sick person’s best interest, I will try to avoid that as best as I can!

A joyous weekend to all!

God Bless!
