Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
-- Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5
I haven't really got any as I'm quite lucky & don't have many
things needing them. One thing I could do with at the moment is a cough
cure. I picked up a cough & a streaming nose (I blame the Eurostar)
about 3 weeks ago & can't get rid of it. I hardly ever get a cold
& can't remember having a cough like this in my life. Old age I
suppose or maybe gadding around too much with air conditioning in hotels
& on planes.
I'm a bit of a believer in letting your body
heal itself but I haven't got time now. I need a flu jab & we're off
on a cruise in a couple of weeks so I'd better get shot of this
The doctor didn't want to give me antibiotics so she
suggested an antihistamine & a cough bottle! However I think I'll
give the brandy, honey & lemon a shot first!!!
