I’m coming down with something. Or I’ve been coming down with it all week, I guess. I’m not sure it’s here yet.
While blowing my nose on the phone with my mother last night, she prescribed a hot toddy:
- A shot of brandy in hot water
- A tablespoon or two of sugar (a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down)
- Honey (a generous squirt)
- Drink and go directly bed.
You’ll feel better in the morning, Mother said.
It worked. I’m not over whatever it is that I have, but I did manage to run 5 miles this morning.
Thanks, Dr. Mom.
