I finally drug myself to the doctor this morning and got some antibiotics for this ridiculous cough. The doctor used the term "bronchitis" and I'm going to get as much mileage out of that as I can.
"I can't make dinner I have bronchitis."
"The kids didn't get their homework done because I have bronchitis."
"I forgot to do the laundry (for the last two weeks) I have bronchitis."
"I'll scrub the bathroom down when my bronchitis is gone."
"I can't walk the dogs, I have bronchitis."
"I"m sorry honey, I have a bronchitis tonight."
"I put all this extra weight on when I got bronchitis."
OK, maybe I'm pushing it just a bit. But I figure after two weeks of being sick I should get something out of it. Like a nap. Which I am very likely to take right now.
