Do you remember the quote “Out you damn spot” from Lady MacBeth in MacBeth? I am trying to will out a cold and I am thinking that I should wring my lungs out instead of my hands like Lady MacBeth.
I yearn for the days when having a cold meant lying in bed all day and being waited on by mommy. Now I am Mommy and there is too much to be done to lie down. DH has the same problem and this cold has caught us both. We are now verging on three weeks of illness. I am just not accustomed to feeling ill. Usually we just will it gone and it goes, but this one is sticking around.
So, “Out damn illness, Out!”
