“Mr. Mucus”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 6:10 pm

Yes, that would be me.

If there were a market for the stuff, I would be in Fat City.

In the meantime, I shall deal with the watery eyes, hacking explosive coughing and feeling as if I had been hit by a bus.

Clearly the cold-induced head goo has not only plugged up my ears, but it also has lodged in the few remaining creativity portals in my cruller.

I think I shall do comfy chair, a bankie and a James Patterson novel — short chapters.

It’s about all that I can handle at the moment.


  1. rest, rest, rest… and hope you feel better soon!

  3. Jimbo… having just recently clawed my fat ass outta the bowels of mucus hell, may I suggest this:


    I know, sounds like total bullshit, but seriously. Drink water. Get yourself a big bottle of “Mussinex” and pop those little suckers like m&m’s at your favorite movie (okay, I’m exaggerating a little – read the farookin’ instructions) and drink lots of water.

    The only way to escape the ‘goo’ is to drown it. I promise.

    Get well soon because I am a selfish heathen bitch and I miss your humor.

    (that was believable, right?)

  4. Jim,
    Pixie is right. When ever I start with the mucus thing, I start right in on the water cure. I drink probably more water than I should over the course of a day and I swear it helps prevent me from getting what most of my office mates usually wander around with. Acutally, right now, everyone in my office, except for me and our receptionist, is hacking, wheezing and dripping.
    We’re both big water drinkers, so there ya go.
    Anyway, feel better, rest easy.

  5. It’s not my fault. I swear.

    Forget post nasal drip. I’ve got post nasal depth charges that are pulling G’s by the time they hit my gag reflex. Between the coughing and the retching, my stomach muscles are killing me.

  6. Well well well, Mr. Mucus, have you thought about what Mrs. Mucus might be thinking about your whining?

  11. I shouldn’t say it but I will – I can’t believe I’ve escaped this AWFUL cold. It’s been in my home, and I sit in University all day with a gazillion snot-filled, snot-spewing kids. I started a bit of one a week or so ago but socked the Cold FX to me and it left quickly. Hope you get some relief soon, nothing worse than being all full of “ick”.
