Pinto Bean Syndrome Part Deux

The Pinto Bean Syndrome has taken me down once again. I really thought my sneezing fits this week were due to allergies until I woke up with the infamous scratchy throat this morning. DAMN. Could the PBS rear its ugly head at a more inopportune time? HELLO, THANKSGIVING. How can I put my turkey face on feeling like this?

Here’s my plan:

1. I only have to work for three hours today. When I get home, it’s lights out.
2. Take Emer’gen – C right now. Hey, it’s cranberry-flavored! Thanksgiving flavors for everyone!
3. Think positive thoughts. The weather has been unusually warm here, so technically, it could be allergies.
4. Pray to the Pinto Gods.
5. Cancel martini night with my fabulous boss. Ohhh, this one cuts deep.
6. Don’t spend hours trying to write an entry, even though I feel very guilty that I haven’t written anything remotely worthwhile in a week. I know you lovely people will understand. Maybe? Hopefully? Please?

In exchange for my lackluster post, I am leaving you with a clip my sister emailed me this morning. I might be pinto-delirious, but I had tears shooting out of my ducts from hysterical laughter. Check it out* and have a Great Thanksgiving!

    Aww, I hope you feel better soon! If Emer’gen-C doesn’t work for you, Airborne (orange or lemon-lime flavored) kicks butt and is available at most drug stores and Trader Joe’s. :O)

    Rest and relax and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving, girls!

    Siz- Isn’t he the cutest? I swear I have watched it at least 15 times this morning….

    Jurgen – Looks like I have met my match. I have made a mental note NOT to communicate with you about disease states…we would totally freak each other out. :) By the way, have you noticed? We have WAY too much in common!

    AAAHAHAHA! I fell out of my chair reading the “subdural hematoma with intracranial pressure!” Every single time I cut myself, I imagine little fighter cells rushing to the area and attacking the foreign bacteria. I nearly make myself vomit, because not only do I know all the stages of clotting, but I chant them in my head and tell people about it. (“Okay, watch for it…watch for it…NOW. The prothrombinase is formed! Wasn’t that AWESOME?!” And then I think of how pus is made and then I’m nauseous. Oh, Anatomy & Physiology and Pathophys. How you hate me so.

    Wow, how’s that for a rambley sidetrack. Um…sorry. Feel better and Happy Thanksgiving.
