I suggest chicken soup or garlic broth for the cough and bananas twice a day for the runs.

Not sure what you mean by puckered up.

I hope you are feeling better.

Baby sis:

Thanks for sharing. I'll go buy some extra toilet paper for the house in case you decide to come over...LOL

Somebody from Minn. doesn't understand being puckered?

Susan in St. Paul said...

Baby sis- I am a transplant not a native Minnesotan ;-)

and a very sleepy transplant at that...

Laurie said...

Susan - How shall I explain "puckered?" Does the word "clinched" give you a better idea of what my bung hole is doing?

Baby Sis - Hopefully, I've sufficiently explained "puckered."

Susan - Transplant or not, wherever you're from, they evidently don't have any "puckered up" assholes there.

Susan in St. Paul said...

ah, now I understand! Not what I think of with the words pucker up, but now I shall.

Based on the number of laxative and regularity ads, I suspect most people up here get more plugged up than puckered up.

People around here don't talk about such things openly, of course they don't talk about most things openly, in fact some don't even really talk much at all!

I hope it gets better really soon, Laurie, it sounds uncomfortable. I was serious about the bananas by the way, they can help antibiotic related diarrhea.

Laurie said...

Susan - Minnesota people are so different from Cajun people, aren't they? Thanks for the banana suggestion. I'll stop at Kroger on my way home. I love bananas!

I vote for chicken soup too!

And what an interesting and educational bunch of comments ;-)

Hope you feel better soon...

Susan in St. Paul said...

Yes, they are different. They even have their own language.

Northern and outstate

Some of the language can come in quite handy at times.

With the except of Crinklequirk and Lisa, most of my friends here are transplants too!

Laurie said...

Just... - I brought the comments on myself.

Susan - It makes me think of the movie Fargo. Great movie.

Constipated thinking is the malady plaguing most of society, but at least you are not victim to that, Laurie. Of course, diarrhea of the mouth seems to run rampant as well. Anyway you dissect it, that's a lot of people in the john.

Laurie said...

Trouble - I'm definitely not a constipated thinker. I try to control my mouth, but I let my brain run rampant.

Lorna said...

Canadians don't know from puckered up either, but it does sound uncomfortable, so take care of yourself

Laurie said...

Lorna - I took my last antibiotic today, so things should start improving shortly.

Alyson said...

How horrible! I think sinus infections are the worst!

Laurie said...

Alyson - I'm finally feeling better.

Susan in St. Paul said...

Glad you are feeling better!

Laurie said...

Susan - Thanks. :)
