Every time I try to sleep I start to cough and choke and moan.
Yep, moan. When I have a cold sometimes, I forget to breathe. I know, how do you forget to breathe. Well, I’ve figured it out somehow. Anyway, the breathe that I’m holding in eventually pushes itself out, and when it does, it sounds like I’m moaning.
Don’t know how long I’ve been doing it, but I’ve only noticed it within the last couple of years.
Scared one of my roommates once. He was making out with his boyfriend in our room, cause I had taken Nyquil and was out. All of the sudden, they hear me moan and it freaked them out. Serves him right for trying to get it on while I was sick. If he needed some alone time, he could have asked.
Anyway, room is clean and sanitized. To quote Zim, “Ahhh, the stench of cleanliness”. I have my super bag of cough drops, so I should be ready for work tomorrow.
I had a stupid thought. I was watching the Spanish network on T. V., watching this couple kiss and I thought to myself, “What if Suzanne and I get back together, and I forget how to kiss her?” Can you forget how to kiss? I thought it was like riding a bicycle. Anyway, this thought has bothered me all afternoon. It’s not like I can practice on Suzanne or anyone else for that matter. I guess I could use my arm or a pillow, but there is no feedback. Hmmmm.
Yeah, I must be doped up on some good drugs. This cold is good as gone.
