I’ve been battling a horrible cold for the last week, complete with a loud, hacking cough that I’m pretty sure has driven my entire office insane. Luckily, it’s just a normal week for me and I don’t have any special events coming up, so I can take my time healing.
I wasn’t so lucky in this department around my wedding. About a month before, I caught yet another horrible cold that resulted in bronchitis and laryngitis–and it reached its peak on my bachelorette party weekend! Needless to say, the old trick of downing whiskey for a sore throat has never been so welcome. I powered through the weekend, and now, my illness is just a vague memory compared to the fun I had. I’m just thankful that I wasn’t plagued with on my actual wedding day.
