Snot Rockets

I'm sick of having a cold. I'm in my 2nd week of this and I'm sick of being sick. I can't sleep at night. I'm tired of taking cold medicine. My throat is scratchy, my eyes are watery and I'm producing snot like Saudi Arabia produces oil. I've purchased so much Advil Cold and Sinus I'm under surveillance for possibly running a crystal meth lab.

If you would have listened to your old pal Larry King and taken your Garliqe you would'nt be nursing a cold right now.

You've seen Larry King lately...I'll take the cold over looking like that any day. Larry King more and more looks like the old guy Billy Crystal played in the Princess Bride.
