I like to tease Johnny that he has the weakest immune system in the world. Although it's not really a laughing matter, the truth is he would catch something from somebody rumored to be sick.
Usually this means the winter is a cyclical journey from one cold, to another sore throat, to congestion, to more aches, and finally to fevers.
One of his favorite ways to feel better from colds, congestion, and sore throats are hot toddies. He heard about this from an old co-worker of his, and I've now got a "recipe" down pat.
mug of hot water
1 slice lemon
1 cinnamon stick
spoon of honey
1-2 shots Scotch
Boil water, or put a mug of water in the microwave until hot. Add the remaining ingredients and let steep for 2-3 minutes. Sip slowly, making sure to enjoy the aromatic steam under your nose.
Instant joy to those with weak immune systems!
P.S. The Dollar Tree has a big ass bag of like 50 cinnamon sticks for a buck!
P.P.S. I told Johnny I was putting that pic on the blog.
P.P.P.S. I think he thought I was kidding.
P.P.P.P.S. I wasn't.
