two fingers

The wife comes home early from work and I hear her and I go running and start to make a feeble attempt on the breakfast dishes, my NOSE running freely. She is like
"no no no! Let me walk the dog and do the dishes and I'll bring you a couple of shots of whiskey for your cold" and I am thinking
"OH! GOSH! And to think I was this lazy azz in bed all afternoon, me, the dog, and my puffs plus with aloe. THIS WOMAN IS AWESOME! Wonder what I need to do to PROLONG THIS COLD and enjoy this treatment?"
but what I say is
"sniffle" and give that sad and sickly look and retreat to where Nurse Wifey can take care of me....and hear her say "but you can still clean the cat box, since your nose is all stuffed anyway"

You're not really sick, are you? I'd fake sickness for Brian to take care of me and pour me a drink (or two). ;)

Pollen is a bitch. I have allergies too. Some days it's like my head could blow up.
Kick that pollens ass and in the meantime Maude will take care of you.

And when you're done with the kitty litter at your house, mine needs cleaning, too! ;)

Hope you feel better soon, Gary.

They don't call it grandpa's cough medicine for nothing. And you've got the good stuff! Isn't that Maker's Mark?
