The Crud

What with Web MD, self-diagnosis has become exceedingly popular. Never one to be left behind from new trends, I too looked into this thing that is going on with my body and have come up with the defining illness.

I have The Crud.

This is a scientific term you may not be familiar with but I can explain: symptoms include scratchy throat, drippy nose, a general feeling of malaise, dollops of annoyance (and possibly being annoying), and an overriding desire to have somebody tuck you up on the sofa whilst bringing a constant stream of herbal teas and bowls of broth. Foot massages are also recommended.

Alas, the best I have been able to do to alleviate these dire symptoms is go to the store, buy some herbal tea and brew it myself. I also prescribed a dog walk with Julie and organizing a hike for tomorrow because (and I know I have mentioned this) the answer to everything is hiking.

So that’s it – my report for the day. I am now going to lie on the couch and read and whine quietly – quietly because no one can hear anyway.
