A can of worms

A can of worms

Effervescent bubbles of boiling water in a pan coagulating and curdling my mixture is my plan..anything and everything containing vitamin C, an old wives medicinal remedy..
lemon and lime to soothe my sore throat, my powerful potent antidote

A spoonful of honey to make it taste sweet as I massage ‘Vicks’ nasal vaporub upon my feet, I know this sounds so ridiculously absurd but they say that helps, at least this is what I heard.. fresh stem ginger with a nip of whiskey, Oh to feel exhuberant, frolicsome and frisky..my magic potion is intensively hot, my heart and soul is in this pot willing and wanting it to be a cure.. mmm I sip a spoonful, this tastes so pure

My perfect piece of paradise in a stovetop pot, tranquillising my tonsels and soothing the spot, unruffling the residue that clogs my tubes, instantaneous luxurious lubes..unblocking my bits and bobs that hurt my head, I felt that bad so I stayed in bed..but fear ye not, I am up again and on my feet, I’ve stripped my bed and washed the sheet..ridding and removing those disgusting germs that infested my body like a can of worms

HI Jill...Some of those old remedies and wives tales really do work!  I prefer natural things sometimes to all the medicines and poking and prodding doctors do.  If you are not feeling well, I hope you feel better soon. xo ;)  Love n Hugs

Wow Jill!
Now, that is the way to survive the flu. 

Incredible job showing the scene. I liked how you gave advice or what remedies worked for you. I hear Ginger is an anti-inflammatory. But, it's harsh on the stomach. 

Fantastic job.
