|Sorry for the raggedy photo. I took a pic of all of this in the pot yesterday, but it seems to have disappeared.|
I'm not supposed to eat spicy foods while waiting for my sinuses to clear. I thought that would be easy until a minute ago when I made some ramen noodles for breakfast. I always douse them in sriracha but had to skip it. :( I'm also not supposed to have alcohol. I forgot that last night and had a shot of NyQuil. That stuff doesn't make me sleep; it actually usually keeps me awake (sudafed issues...), but not last night! Might have just been because I haven't had a decent night of sleep since last Thursday...
Even my grandma has been asking me if I'm taking something for this cough. I asked her if she knew something I could go outside and boil up! :D She has Alzheimer's, and the first time I asked, she acted like she'd never heard of such a thing. About thirty minutes later, she started telling me how her great-grandmother was "an Indian" (no idea about a tribe) and that back in the day I would have been told to get some rabbit tobacco, bluegrass, or heartleaf (wild ginger) to work on this cough. I Googled rabbit tobacco for coughing and found plenty of references. So, if any of y'all have some old rabbit tobacco dried up let me know!
**Yes, I'm one of those annoying people who will Google anything in the middle of a conversation. I like to know things, and it is super convenient!**
