Tonsillitis vs. Martinis

I thought he had a really bad cold. Nothing touched it. Not decongestants, not cold medicine, nothing. I think now it might be tonsillitis. So I've been gargling with salt water and hydrogen peroxide, which helped a little. I'm now on my 4th martini, which seems to have helped a lot. Oh sure, it still hurts like a sonofabitch, but I just don't care.

Yes, that's it for my blog for today. Have tonsillitis? Martinis is the answer.


  1. Are you gargling with marina salt water?? 4 Martinis by 8:30 AM!! You should be in fine shape by noon....

    1. OK, in the interest of accuracy, I wrote that last night, as I usually do. I had four martinis between 4 PM and 8 PM, at which time I went to bed. I awoke at 2 AM, totally miserable and in a lot of pain, so I had two more martinis, went to bed, and got up at 8.

      Hey, I'm retired. It's not like I have to be at work at 8 AM all bright tailed and bushy eyed.
