Raise your hand if you're sick right now.
Oh wait, I'm the only one? Haha.
I've finally caught the cold that's been traveling around the house for the last week. I've been coughing since yesterday and it feels like someone shoved a cotton ball up into my sinuses. GROSS. I'm so glad I'm done with summer classes - can't imagine having to study feeling like this!
Thankfully, I remembered an old remedy an elementary school teacher of mine recommended to my mom way back when: hot lemonade with honey! It works and it's very easy to make.
What you need:
1/2 lemon (or, if your sore throat/cough is really bad, use the whole lemon. I may or may not have done this yesterday. Haha.)
Squeeze the juice out of the lemon into a mug. Add water. I normally fill the mug halfway with water, but you can use more or less, doesn't matter. Microwave for 20-30 seconds, or until hot. Add honey to taste. Drink.
It's not a cure-all, but it will definitely help soothe a sore throat.
I'll pick up Dealing With Drama again as soon as I feel better!!
