The Road To Recovery

The chicken soup I received as a gift came in handy, when a monster by the name of Flu took up residence. It’s been a rough couple of weeks. My thoughts were congested. I wasn’t sure what I’d write for my next blog, but wanted to try to cough something up.

Now that I’m on the road to recovery, I can look back and see how far I’ve come. Statistically speaking, I didn’t sneeze as much as when I’ve gotten other colds, though I did manage to use up half a box of tissues. I also coughed more. It started as a simple beat, then progressed to a nonstop percussive rhythm. Now it’s slowed down. I like being around other coughers. We have a really great symphony of sounds. My nose was stuffed up for awhile, but around the time of the government shutdown, I had a sniffles shutdown that cleared the way. I even got my taste buds back, which means that any day now I’ll be going out for pastries. If only my ears would pop, everything would be A-OK.

Stay well, dear readers.

This is the one blog I don’t want to go viral.




I am a rather obscure 14th C. poet, whose work has been translated into over thirty dialects of gibberish. I now spend my days translating from the gibberish into English and back again, as need be.

  1. Get well soon, Emsch the Mensch. I didn’t get to celebrate my week of birthday celebrations as an uninvited guest (“{Feisty Flu”) came to stay the day after my actual b-day. Mine has finally flown the coop and really hope yours will too. Chicken soup does work great–keep on sipping and I know you’ll be back soon! 🙂

    1. I am so sorry you couldn’t celebrate your birthday, as planned. I hope you can reschedule, have your cake and eat it too. I’m glad that Feisty Flu has finally flown the coop! Thank you for your good wishes.


  2. EtM…you even bring humor to your ills. I am glad you and Sammee, too, are now on the mend. Just keep slurping down the soup and fighting the good fight against the evil Flu. I do hope this doesn’t go viral, either. ~nan

  3. Belated Birthday Wishes–maybe more celebration is due, like an increase in an interest rate to a faithful reader.

    May everyone recover rapidly. After all, Groundhog Day is coming soon; look for the Flu’s shadow. Perhaps there will be a national shortage of soup.
    To Emsch the Mensch, the new layout and graphic designs are terrrific. Congrats!
