Join the Club!


Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. 


I think I’ll start a new club.  You can enroll if you’ve been sick this winter with the flu or any other of the nasty gunkies that have been overstaying their welcome.  There are no dues, no benefits, no meetings, no officers in my club. All you need is to be sick for at least two weeks, and you’re in!  Aren’t you excited?


I’m going on week three, and I’m sick of being sick. This is just wrong. My own personal cocktail of misery includes sinusitis with tons of post-nasal drip, sore throat, laryngitis, ear and throat infections, coughcoughcoughcoughcough. Can’t work without my voice, and I don’t have the energy anyway,

What a lousy way to end a wonderful vacation.

  1. I’d love to join your club :). I got the flu shot, and despite that, enjoyed two fun-filled weeks of coughing, sneezing, wheezing, and all those other -ing words. I’m sorry that you feel so bad, but take care of yourself! The only thing that finally brought me out of it was steroids and sleeping 16 hours…

    1. Yes, I’m being careful. Talked with my doctor’s nurse today, and she told me if my throat is still sore tomorrow (over two weeks now) they’ll work me in for a quick swab. She said all the stuff that’s going around right now is really nasty and lingers for a long time.
