OMG ladies and gents, a very tragic episode has just hit my house. THE MAN COLD! Don't let your husbands get infected with the dreaded MAN COLD. Hide your husbands away, don't even let them work, and for goodness sake, DON'T LET THEM AROUND YOUR KIDS!!!!
If that man cold has found its way into your husband’s body, PREPARE FOR DOOM!!!! Your homes will echo with the sounds of whining, crying, sniffling, aching, and yelling. All this, just in an effort to reach the remote control that is only inches away from his hand. My advice? Lock him in a dark room and pray for his soul.
THE MAN COLD is allegedly much worse than the woman cold. Just ask him. According to him, it definitely consists of several types of viruses and bacteria (maybe both at the same time) that eat away at his sinuses and throat. Women could never understand what goes on during THE MAN COLD (even though we had the same cold last week) this is soooo much worse. How can the poor, ailing husband be expected to move a muscle without assistance? I crack myself up.
So yes, my husband has a man cold this week! Yay for me!!! But ya know what shocked me, I mean, dropped my jaw to the floor? I thought I knew this guy, but he actually asked me to use my "smelly stuff in this thing" (translation... put some oils in the diffuser). I about fell on the floor!! He is currently sitting next to a diffuser and inhaling on purpose. I would take a picture, but he doesn't think the celebrity life is for him.
So what am I using? I’ll tell ya!
Eucalyptus globulus Crude
You can put this mixture in a steaming pot of water with a towel over your head to clear your sinuses too. I would offer to have my husband do this, but I don't want to poke the bear.
I’ll mix it up later with:
Other remedies I use are:
Lemon and Honey Tea
Sqeeze a lemon and honey to taste in warm water and drink.
If his cold gets bad, and I mean really bad, we will have to resort to drastic measures. Mix equal parts vinegar and honey in a shot glass and shoot it!!!! It is the worst, most disgusting taste, but it works!! I have done this a few times, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
