I cannot work myself up in a tizzy over this… but it seems that today’s knights in shining armour come with cough medicine and throat sweets in the place of helmets and horses. The last few weeks I’ve spent coughing up my lungs and keeping my ab muscles in very tight form (I’m expecting a six pack any day soon!) as I had the worst sore throat in a long time (I seem prone to things like tonsillitis and sore throats) which then transgressed into the worst hayfever in a long time. I even went to the doctors about it, so it must have been serious as I NEVER go to the doctors unless I am literally dying. So you can imagine my frustration when she sent me home and told me to ‘rest’.
So back to the cutesy story… I was up one night doing some more ‘dying’, when there was a knock on my door, and when I opened it, standing before me was The Newby (newest addition to the house), with a bottle of cough syrup and throat sweets in his hands. *Sudden burst into smiles of delight* I apologised if I’d kept him up at all in the last few days (he has early morning starts), and explained it was my hayfever which had reached the point of asthmatic attacks and coughing fits (particularly in front of customers at the restaurant, where I’d be holding in my cough thereby causing my face to turn bright read and my eyes tearing up… hmm, attractive!). He immediately recoiled his hand with the cough medicine saying it wouldn’t help, and said he knew of something else that would help. I explained I used over-the-counter drugs for hayfever, such as Piriton and Benadryl, and he wrote down for me this crazy long drug name I could buy from Boots, which was Piriton in a more basic form and without the brand name so heaps cheaper. Turns out The Newby has a Masters degree in Pharmacology. Someone with brains! (And nice hair!)
Newby has also turned into my new-time film-bud, as we discovered yesterday in the spare room half of Blockbusters. And no, I don’t mean my own vast DVD collection, I mean HALF OF BLOCKBUSTERS IN THE SPARE ROOM. It even puts my DVD collection to shame!! So we picked out a mound of films, and ended up watching ‘Youth in Revolt’ with Michael Cera, and it was really hilarious! So a good evening. :) Plus, I’m feeling much better.
