I don’t think my throat has ever hurt so badly that it woke me up until today. Yes, I’ve been up since just before 5 am because of it. The temporary relief granted by gargling warm salt water only lasts until the next time you swallow.
And now I need to go shower because Mica HAD to be petted while I was taking a drink of tea. He head-butted the mug and caused me to spill honeyed tea all down my front. I didn’t get burned, but now I’m all sticky and my shirt is wet. Ugh.
We did give all four critters flea baths last night. Shelley hasn’t forgiven me yet.
