I Think I Have A Man Cold

I was getting better from my chest cold.  Mr. MPB was getting better from his head cold / man cold.

However, this morning I woke up unable to swallow without pain.  I then realized my nose is super plugged.  And then, it became obvious to me that I now have my very own head cold.  Presumably it’s the same as Mr. MPB’s man cold.

And let me tell you, it’s miserable!!

My nose is now running constantly, my head is heavy and my throat feels like it’s full of razor blades.

It’s so bad that at one point this morning I lied down on the hallway floor while Mr. MPB was brushing his teeth and proclaimed that I am dying.

To which, Mr. MPB laughed at me and pointed out the irony.

I’m so miserable that I even feel a bit bad for giving him a hard time for whining so much about his cold on the weekend.  I may even feel bad for stating that he was snoring like a wild hippopotamus.

I guess it’s official, I am living proof that women can get man colds.  Although, I’m not sure if they are still called man colds when a women has them?

  1. I’m sorry, but this made me laugh!! And I love hippos, so the fact that you compared him to one made my day. I am sorry that you’re feeling so crap though. Maybe he will step up and take care of you now!?!? I hope that you get rid of this nastiness very soon! Mine started last Monday (over a week ago), and today is the first day that I woke up without my throat killing me. Fingers crossed yours doesn’t take that long!

  2. I hope your man cold passes quickly. As much as it sucks that you and Mr. MPB are sick, you certainly wrote some entertaining blog posts about it!! 🙂

  3. I don’t actually want to like this post because these stupid colds suck! The OGD household is right along with you. The only one safe still is L and I’m really hoping it stays away from her. I’m going to start rubbing thieves on her feet before bed tonight. Feel better soon!
