i've had a nasty chest cough for at least 2 weeks now.
we all have it.
it's the worst.
i hadn't slept in days because at even the hint of laying down my body would go into some sort of hysterical coughing/choking fit. i was getting desperate for rest and crankier by the minute... started to wonder if this cough was in fact pure evil and an exorcism was the only way out...?
the other night my friend tracie called, just to say hello and offer up a little sanity saving advice, "just rub a little vicks on your feet sarah" (she assured me it wasn't intended to improve the respiratory function of my toes, rather it should keep the cough at bay).
i was too delirious to question how this could possibly work, i just went for it... and i slept wake-less-ly all night.
i still have the cough, so it's magical powers are limited, but i've been sleeping so we'll all live to see another day.
