Zom­bie sight­ings along Fundy Shore

The Citizen-Record (Cumberland) - - COMMUNITY - Crys­tal Me­lan­son

Hello Read­ers, hope you all had a su­per week and guess what? Cold and flu sea­son is upon us.

In case you haven’t heard some­one within ear shot, hack­ing, cough­ing, or wheez­ing, con­sider your­self warned. I can’t tell you how sur­prised I was the other day when I walked into a store at eight thirty in the morn­ing and was told that I was the sec­ond per­son in al­ready that day to buy cough drops. This, while some­one was cough­ing in line be­hind me. It seemed ev­ery­where I went that morn­ing I heard the same hack­ing cough com­ing from oth­ers who had been in­fected. No won­der I was sick, too. It was cer­tainly go­ing around.

Though I blamed my par­tic­u­lar in­fec­tion on my hus­band who had been do­ing the zom­bie walk for three days, you know the one - drag your­self from the cov­ers of the bed to the medicine cab­i­net for a le­mon drink, cough drops, or some kind of over-the­counter combo drug that helps with the dry cough, wet cough, fever, chills, body aches, snor­ing — sorry, noth­ing re­ally works for the snor­ing hus­band —and then crawl right back into bed again.

So while I was in town I shopped for more reme­dies — to­tal cold and flu drinks, stronger cough drops, and while we were al­ready pop­ping vita- min C like smar­ties at home and tak­ing a spoon­fuls of honey here and there, when it comes to the cold and flu, you just got to put in your time. Noth­ing re­ally short­ens your re­cov­ery quite as well as good old rest and tak­ing care of your­self.

Have a great week ev­ery­one.
