Lower the bar

I don’t know what other people do when they get sick, but I binge watch “Bar Rescue.”

Because there’s nothing that’ll make me feel better than watching an alcoholic who can’t clean his ice machine get yelled at by Jon Taffer and then get wowed by the backlit liquor bottles behind his remodeled bar. Throw in a new menu of salty tater tots and superfluously cheesy burgers, and it’s reality TV heaven.

At intermission (aka a series of commercial breaks), I crunched through half a bag of Spicy Nacho Doritos and an unknown number of slices of cheddar cheese.

Well, when you lack the energy to change the channel, it could be worse.

This is what happens when you neglect to get your flu shot. You get the flu. And spend your Saturday feeling like an ugly bag of mostly water (yes, Trekkers, that was a Next Generation reference).

I figure by now I’m on the other side of the worst of it, despite coughing like a seal.

Please pass the remote.

  1. Wow – sounds like you are really living the dream. Funny conversation with our exchange student from Germany. She shared she was afraid she would catch a cold from too much ice skating (she is enthralled with it as her region in Germany gets very little snow). I gentled advised that she can’t get sick from being cold (just in time as it hit -14 today – another new experience for her).

    • Cold, no, but tell her to wash her hands after handling a grocery cart (or door knob or money or anything else handled by hundreds of uninnoculated strangers).

  2. I had a hard time hitting like for this as I don’t like to see you sick. Hope you are on the mend now.
