Wanted to get into the NDAA fray a tad because at first I wasn’t understanding the conflicting signals about the exact language vs the intent of the language. It’s been neigh impossible because I’ve been sick. Whatever it is – the insistent cough thrusting into the chest, the sore throat where gravel apparently is stuck, that stuffiness of your head that makes you feel kinda high but dizzy at the same time, and some other shit thrown in just for the hell of it. After 2-1/2 days of not working, 2-1/2 days of working at half-speed, and one doctor visit, know what I found? TheraFlu! Lying in bed working up my energy level to get out to Rite-Aid for TheraFlu it struck me that my parents would use Vicks VapoRub when we had “chest colds” or whatever else they could find to use it for.
Don’t know what or which it was, but my sore throat was gone in the morning, and I’m feeling fairly good. Not good enough to eat nachos which I’m really hankering for right about now and having to repeatedly talk myself out of fixing, but Shredded Wheat dusted with powdered sugar will suffice for the moment.
