THE DREADED LURGY



Mixing with the filthy germ infested great unwashed has yet again been my downfall .

I caught a mild cold just before christmas but managed to fight that off in time for the festivities , but it did keep managing to make a slight comeback for a few days here and there , but there again the weather has been evilly cold . By the time I got to last weekend , as all around coughed , hacked and grumbled I was patting meself on the back having survived the worst of it.

Then WAMMO!!!!

Cough , nose running like a tap , high temperature and everything hurts EVEN MY TEETH.

Today I have been slouching about at home , wrapped up in a fleece blanket , groaning gently (Not that there is any bugger here to listen but one should make the effort).

What would you send by way of emergency aid to an ailing Beast ???

You seem to be getting a lot of it Beast, how friendly are you with your co-workers? Perhaps tell them not to smooch you until the spring.
In the meantime a couple of female gorillas could give you their famous all-body man-massage. Heavy pressure all over is what you need.

The Thomas the Tank Annual?
Just look at the pictures... it'll cheer you up...
And a Thomas the Tank paint by numbers kit... for when you're feeling slightly better.
Sx

P.S I've always been a generous sort...

MJ said...

scarlet-blue said...

Does he need hair clips MJ? What about the wig thingy?

MJ said...

Merkin?

Eeek!

*reaches for Beast's bottle of Revivogen™ and scrubs vigorously*

Daisy said...

It may be time to flee the city and seek hermetic asylum in a countryside cave with Merlin?

Do NOT watch the Andromeda Strain before you go to bed.

eroswings said...

I'd send you Chicken soup, some delicious fruit, and some hot tea with some blueberry pancakes with honey.

And perhaps some handwashing gel and disposable gloves and mask so you'd be protected from the filthy, germ ridden public the next time you go out.

CyberPete said...

A toothbrush?

Sounds like you have some weird tooth/gum disease.

Poor you.

BEAST said...

ITS A MIRACLE
The Beast has dragged himself from his sick bed and feels much restored.
Thank you for everyones kind wishes .
I have had two days fighting off Mr Bananas massaging gorilla's , spent a little time colouring in Miss Scarlets Thoma the Tank Engine Annual , Worrying who's house Miss MJ has broken into and made free with their magazine rack.
Thanks to Miss Daisy for virtual pillow plumping , Eros for the chicken soup and pancakes ...yum .
Donns helpful suggestions (didnt tell me which bus to catch) and CyberP's complete mis diagnosis(You could have a career in the National Health service with skills like that ).
Phew I have worn myself out again now and may need a short lie(or lay) down

Frobisher said...

I'd have given you a big cup of "pull yourself together"

Thank God you weren't about when the Nazis bombed Plymouth!

BEAST said...

Oh pffft Frobisher
we all remember the dreadful fuss when you had a cold

CyberPete said...

*fills out application*

Does a NHS job come with benefits (other than the joy and power to tell people what's wrong with them)?

MJ said...

*attempts to remove thermometer from Beast's botty but can't find it for all the fruit*

KAZ said...

For God's sake buck up man and get back down t'pit.
Grabs mj's bottle from between the stripey tights and gives it to Beast - his need is so much greater.

MJ said...

I don't THINK so, Kaz!

You're lucky I'm on my way out for the day soon or a bitchfight might ensue.

Kaz ,These colonials can be very curt on occasions
'Eggy' is the term I believe

CyberPete said...

I only want the attractive people then.

No trolls and oldies

mutleythedog said...

I understand that being caked in horse manure cures colds... I shall try it if I catch one!

On a lighter note, I have the small hat you left in The Woodman- may I give it to Fast Eddie? He has VD and needs some sympathy...

MJ said...

I have the small hat you left in The Woodman...

Is that code for something?
