This weekend I had a sore throat. It was really bad- like I was swallowing around an enflamed golf ball. I was in Loudoun, staying at my brother’s house, and asked my sister-in-law if she had any Chloraseptic spray. Instead she whipped me up a batch of grossness to swallow down and heal me from the inside out.
fresh ginger (it has healing properties!)
cayenne pepper (also- healing!)
cinnamon (more healing?)
garlic (makes you smell bad!)
honey (it soothes!)
lemon (because something acidic feels great on a sore throat!)
After I gagged it down, she remembered that it *might* have given her the runs, the last time she took it.
Not what you want to hear when you’ve just wrestled yourself into a pair of Spanx that you bought in high school.
In an effort to hide the post-baby/I-look-like-I’m-in-my-second-trimester-but-I’m-not-actually-pregnant look.
And you’re stuck in those Spanx all day.
