Haiku to amuse myself before I go back to bed

Lungs full of pudding
Swimming in old green jello
Please pass a tissue
.....
I am sick today
You should run while there's still time
I'll sneeze on you next
.....
Ugly chemicals
Overpowering vapor
Cough drop breath is here
.....
Can't taste a thing now
For all I know, this is paste
Or mud, or ice cream
.....

So sorry to hear!
(I meant that literally.
Please to be quiet?)

New exercise plan:
Abdominal Fortitude!
"And... Heeeeaaaaavvve. Keep it up!"

Sick 55 (I mean good)

How horrible to not be able to tell the difference between mud and ice cream.

Hope you're better soon!
It's rotten when you feel like that.

Janna said...

Whall: I've always wondered about whether "Heeeeaaaaavvve" was one syllable or four...

Bubba: Good and sick, if that's possible!

Alice: Maybe it's rocky road... or moose tracks.

MorningAJ: I feel like I've been kicked by a Volkswagen full of buffalo. And I can't even make buffalo wings out of them because I'm too tired to cook.

Rub it on your feet
Let the Vicks vapors heal you
Don't forget your socks

Seriously, that's what Mrs. MM does. Rubs her feet with Vicks at nights, slips on socks and somehow her congestion disappears. I always thought you should rub it on your chest, but....

Poor thing. Fun haiku, though. Hope you feel better soon.

As long as your temp is not 55 degrees. Get well, dear...this crud is nasty.

You just HAD to mention food didn't you? (Pudding)
I'm so sorry Janna, I hope you feel better today.
Loved your sickly 55...
You are like one completely clear nostril, the minute your head hits the pillow!
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Remember the VICKS Vapo Rub??? oh well
that and STEAM ! thanks-

Janna said...

MonkeyMan: On my feet and socks? Really? I've never tried that... Come to think of it, I've never bought any Vicks VapoRub ever in my entire life! Maybe I should start.

Brian: Bad indeed!

nonamedufus: Pass the tissues!

Belinda: I hope so too.

hedgewitch: When I'm having chills, it feels like I'm pretty close to 55. Other times it feels more like 99. Can't win.

G-Man: LOL! Hooray for clear nostrils!

izzy: Steam? Like a vaporizer machine, you mean? My mom has one of those...
