Dear Nasal Passages,

That's right. Open up. I appreciate the air flow, and also the sleep.

Gratefully,
Adrienne

Dear Right Lung,

No, no, no. That stabby pain, which you did away with yesterday? Is back.

Not good.

Reservedly yours,
Adrienne

Dear Stomach,

I understand that you've had more than your fair share of mucus drainage these past four days. I don't like it any more than you do, but understand: you have got to let me feed you. Next time I break out the soup, try not to panic.

No love,
Adrienne

Humph. Shoulda used "are" instead of "is". Too bad I don't have the higher level LJ where I can edit my posts.

I like "Succinct". I'll have to use it sometime.

I remember the day I learned it: I was about eight years old. A teacher told me that something I'd written was a very succinct description, and that was the first time I'd ever heard the word. I liked the sound of it.

"Does that mean something like specific?" I asked.

Not too far off the mark, as it turned out. I've loved the word ever since!

Good story. I have one also -- separate. I will never forget the correct spelling of it due to my 4th grade teacher. She pointed out that there's a rat in separate. sep "a rat" e. I've never forgotten it, from that.

The teacher in question remains a very dear mentor of mine to this day. I love the way that one tiny conversation dating back to elementary school can change the course of your life.

I hope you feel better, soon.

Please forgive me if this is an obnoxious and obvious question, but have you ever used a Neti Pot?

Since I started using one my colds never get as bad as they used to, and I can always breathe at night.

No, but I know what they are - and I'm more than tempted to look into it for next time!

Poor dear.

*pets your organs gently*

I think tomorrow I'll see a huge difference!

Everyone's getting sick nowadays.

I had a sharp, stabby pains in my stomach and felt weak all day yesterday. And my muscles have all banded together in protest, refusing to move.

Bastards, the lot of them.
Get well soon :)

I had been doing very well for a while, honest!

Aw, sweetie! I'm so sorry. I hate it when parts of one's own body begin actively working to undermine their owner.

ESPECIALLY WHEN THE AFOREMENTIONED BODY SYSTEM IS MY BLOOD SUGAR. GODDAMN IT THE OTHER DAY I DIDN'T EAT MY DAILY MUFFIN AND I WAS FLIPPING OUT ALL DAY LONG. TRUE STORY.
