Impossible, ain’t it? I am up at 4:00AM with the most annoying cough ever. Where do coughs come from anyway? If I had to choose between being sick with a congested nose or having an undying cough, I’d be congested. At least eating spicy food would open up my nostrils! But coughs don’t go away that easily.
I wish I had some honey or cough drops. Better yet, I wish I had this:
This is a relic, a family tradition. My old-school mom used to rub some Vick on my chest and neck when I was little and it helped cure my congestion and coughing almost overnight. Now, as an adult, I do the same thing, applying it on other spots, like my nose. I know I’m not supposed to, but I can’t help it because it smells so goooood! I just want to eat it…
Well, with no VVR at hand, I’ll try to see what I can do to ignore this cough and go back to sleep before the sun comes up.
