thar she blows

day 8 of a bothersome cold and already i have been through two of those cubical boxes of tissues. on my return trip to the pharmacy, where they know me by now, i compare the cube and the rectangle, thinking they are all the same tissues. not so! the rectangle contains 132 tissues, the cube only 60. the tissues in the rectangle are bigger than those in the cube. and the rectangle is more expensive, but not by much. since my tissue holder is for a cube, i wonder if i can take the tissues from the rectangle, fold 'em in half, and stuff them in the empty cube. because at the rate i'm going through tissues, i'll use up those 60 cube tissues by tuesday.

Seems not worth the effort! During the the dog days of a cold, keep it simple, use the rectangle!!! Feel better!

When the faucet is running, who cares what shape the mop closet is?

try some olive leaf extract (to, hopefully, prevent the next cold). i've been taking it for years and have only had one cold (when i forgot to take the OLE when i went to Germany in 2001) since 2000. joanna
