Snot much fun

I used up a whole box of tissues today, what with all the sneezing and the nose-blowing - and that doesn't include the snots coming out of TLM's nostrils.

The whole bath-bed routine becomes much more difficult when I've got a head cold. Bathtime takes longer because I keep having to stop to blow my nose; storytime is a lot messier when my nose is dripping like it's an ingredient in a chemistry lab; and singing those two lullabies, at the very end of the routine, sounds much...gluggier...when my sinuses are full to the brim (despite the dripping and blowing).

I've taken Sudafed, but they've been about as effective as a couple of sugar pills.
Got any drugs that work?

A hot curry apprenlty is really good!!

You could stick a tampon up your nose but that probably wouldn't feel too good.
Hope your nose quits running soon.

casdok: yeah, it's really good for making your nose run, isn't it? But not for making it stop.

angela: they'd have to be super-petite size though, or I'd end up with oversized nostrils.

lumphyheadsmom: you must not have the Asian drinking curse ;-) If I were to try that, I'd be snotty and red-faced. And then I'd fall over.
