Rum Hot Toddy

For the first time in about 2 years (I think), I'm coming down with the flu. I have aching joints, a sore throat, and a generally miserable disposition. I'm not a good patient really but at least I know that. I don't moan and whimper like I'm begging to be shot, but I find it hard to function in a flu fug.
I posted this picture of a rum hot toddy not because I have any of the ingredients for one, but just for the fact that looking at it made me feel better. I've actually tracked down some Advil PM (aka 'knockout ')pills, and I even found some Aussie Soothers in my luggage. How long have they been in there? Best not to ask.
And so before I lapse into the completely self-absorbed one-woman pity party favoured by decrepit invalids everywhere, I will take my germs to the sofa and watch some Food Network and then have an early medicated night. And I won't complain to anyone. And don't worry, I'll keep the germs all to myself.
