Yes, I was looking for "I Got It from Agnes," evidently composed around 1952 but not recorded until much later on Tomfoolery. I'm not sure why this thread is below the line.

Like Virginia said, Amos. If I moved to southern California, I'd hack all the time from the dryness.

I missed my flu shot, too; I was either hacking or sneezing, and the doc won't needle me in either condition. At least he spares me the nagging -- he doesn't have time.

Ya know, you guys could move to SOuthern California

Everybody together now .... SHUT UP AMOS!

This thing first started on 13 November. I actually felt well and normal Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and a few days following Boxing day.

Then it crept back on me. Luckily no fever with this one (so far), but all the other nasty stuff. Speak up Amos... I can't hear you.

I know what the problem is. I was on methotrexate (chemo) for nearly 2 years (a useless attempt to knock down my immune system as treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis, which did nothing to the RA but made me feel like I had terminal day after syndrome when there had been no night before.... pant, pant, gasp.... so unfair). Stopped chemo in June 08 but my immune system has not recovered.

What makes it worse? I was not informed by my GP that flu vaccine was available until after I fell ill. Still getting reminders to make appointment. Can't get well enough to have the damn jab.

Who says Americans don't get irony! It is heaped upon me and it is gettin damned heavy.

I almost never get sick but I had a terrible chest cold that started December 15th or so and continued until around December 28th. I just couldn't seem to shake it - took three days off from work, stayed in bed, but the coughing was awful. I think my son brought it when he came to visit from California. My other son caught the cold and also developed an opportunistic ear infection, which he's still dealing with although it seems to be improving. The only good thing about being sick is it makes you so appreciative of feeling normal when it goes away!

After hacking my brains out for a week I saw my doctor and he told me it should begin working its way out of my system in 3-4 more days and I'll be damned if he wasn't correct. Right on schedule I started feeling better and now it's totally gone.

Hack, splutter, wheeze ...

It's me, with the Cough That Ate Christmas. I'm also still kinda deaf, and the nose runs like the garden hose given half a chance. We are now half-way through the third week -- it all began on Friday, the freakin' twelfth of December.

My head is not particularly large, and is generally accepted to be full of brains. How in blazes does it produce so much SNOT?

Wheeze, splutter, hack ...

Occasional tinnitus in my left ear is all that's left of the Infection From Hell. I suspect the antibiotics and my immune system have left me more than able to cope with whatever else winter thriows my way. ut now everyone else is hacking and coughing - bronchitis everywhere.

I don't even mind going to work now that I feel good.

There was a really gruesome episode of tHRILLER IN THE 60S - A GUY FALLS FOR A MISSIONARY'S WIFE IN THE MI9DDLE OF aFRICA. sHE IS NOT INTERESTED AND LOVES HER "OLDER" HUSBAND. dAMN cAPSLOCK!
Anyway, the would be suitor bribes a local to put an earwig in the husband's ear while he sleeps. This is a special earwig. It eats its way through your brain in a straight path. By the time it comes out the other ear, you're dead.

Of course the earwig gets put in the wrong ear and the Lotherio ends up screaming in pain for a few weeks as this thing chomps its way through his brain. BUT he survives and the earwig comes out the other side.

No one is celebrating his recovery and he thinks he is up on a attepted murder charges but the sad truth is "It was a female and she laid her eggs in your brain. They will hatch in a day or two and..."


That might work.

Mary,
Lobsters disgust me, Barry.

For Peter Gray, and Somers too, though certainly in trade,
Were properly particular about the friends they made;
And somehow thus they settled it without a word of mouth --
That Gray should take the northern half, while Somers took the South.

On Peter's portion oysters grew -- a delicacy rare,
But oysters were a delicacy Peter couldn't bear,
On Somers' side was turtle, on the shingle lying thick,
Which Somers couldn't eat, because it always made him sick.

Gray gnashed his teeth with envy as he saw a mighty store,
Of turtle unmolested on his fellow-creature's shore.
The oysters at his feet aside impatiently he shoved,
For turtle and his mother were the only things he loved.

From W S Gilbert's 'Etiquette'

Not quite lobsters, & It doesn't help the symptoms, but it may raise a smile.

Okay, that does it. Here are some cures from my home town, warranted genuine and copied from "Folk-Lore of Adams County, Illinois" (NY: Alma Eigens Hyatt Foundation, 1935), p. 241ff:

4983. Heat cow manure in sweet milk, then place this in a bag and tie it against the ear for earache.

4986. Cure earache by keeping the ear filled with goose grease.

4995. Fry a piece of rabbit fat and put one drop of the grease in the ear for earache.

4999. As an earache remedy, use skunk oil.

5006. A little urine rubbed in the ear will cure earache.

5010. Stop a girl's earache by inserting into her ear a few drops of urine from a boy.


Now, if these don't do it let me know. There are more cures to try.
