I have been coughing non-stop for three days. I get that little tickle in the back of my throat and I HAVE to cough. That one cough turns into a spasm of coughing that lasts at least two minutes. All my muscles hurt. My neck, my shoulders, my back, my stomach and even my legs. My cough sounds awful--my ears are hurting. And to top it all off I am not in a very good mood---wonder why? Throughout all this the love of my life has drifted in and out seemingly oblivious to my distress (Are you cooking dinner today?). Oh, yeah, buddy, I will cook up something for you alright!
