A funny thing happened on my way to the keyboard

Actually, not so funny. I woke up Sunday morning feeling as though someone had slapped me repeatedly, dipped me in icewater, sewed my nose shut and put sandpaper where my throat used to be. We are not amused. In typical OneChele fashion, I decided to hop up and power on. On my way from the bedroom to the office, I felt compelled to lay down on the sofa and rest. Yes, resting after 10 steps is a sign. Long story short, the bouge is at half-mast ya'll. Some sort of cold/flu/crud snatched me and wrestled me down.

I grabbed Nyquil and Theraflu (don't judge me) and crawled under the covers with my laptop. I made it through about three tweets before the letters started doing the conga across the screen. My newly-engaged friend, @TiffanyinHouston politely told me to lay my bougie behind down. And so I did. Missed my own radio show, missed a friend's baby shower, missed football all day. All of this to say... no humor-filled holiday post today. My pleasing personality starts to slip when I'm unwell. So no need to inflict testy OneChele on BougieLand. But feel free to send me your get well wishes in the comments section. Hope to be back soon. Happy Holidays!

That's really too bad and on a holiday week too. I hope you are one of those that bounces back quick. You were kidding about the Nyquil and Theraflu at the same time, right? Please read the warnings. Too much Acetaminophen can do bad things to you and they both have the maximum amount. This is especially true for those who drink alcohol because it is hard on the liver. Hot herbal teas and bed rest (and extra Vitamin C) are a good idea. I hope you feel better soon.

Awe, poor BougieCousin. I hope you feel well soon. Plenty of rest, fluids and food for strength. Love you and hope you are up and better then ever in no time. XOXO

Feel better, OneChele.

I'll miss your daily dose of humor and wisdom.

Girl get some rest, put the laptop down and add copious amounts of honey and rum to that Theraflu. Trust me, it works! If you can find it, take some Buckleys!

Liselle said...

Get well soon! Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

JaymeC said...

i already know you are topping off the tea with rum, get some rest and come back soon!

Steve said...

Congrats to @TiffanyinHouston! Feel better, Chele.

Grace said...

Ugh - I hate that, been dodging that cold bug for more than a minute. Tea and sympathy

ASmith said...

Thank God for Tiffany.

If I see one tweet, a word on this blog, or even feel your presence on these here innawebs before you are well (uhh.. ok, let's say in the next 24 hours), the wrath will not be pretty.

Feel better soon OneChele. Please and thanks.

That Robitussin will clear that H1N1 right up...

Huh?
You missed the Cowgirls beating The Saints?

OneChele said...

Oh no, I caught that. The shock of the Cowboys actually playing up to their talent level probably shocked my body into illness :-)

No, no, no. Do not mix acetaminophen and alcohol. You will do a number on your liver. If you must have a toddy, switch to ibuprohen or naproxen (aspirin is not as bad a mix as acetaminophen, but it's not a good idea either).

Jara said...

Aw, I just read this post. From your newer Christmas post, it looks like you're all better now. Yay! In other news, I think I caught what you had...
