A Whiskey On My Way to Work

Aye, that's right. A wee dram in the train at 6:30am.

It was actually my husband's new speciality- hot toddy with Lem-Sip. For those of you who do not know, a hot toddy is hot water and whiskey with a bit of sugar, honey and cayenne pepper. It is meant to relieve cold symptoms such as a runny nose and sore throat. Lem-Sip is a medicated powder that is mixed with hot water also intended for the same purpose. Whatever they say about mixing alcohol and drugs is out the window with this drink. Scott filled my thermos with the hot toddy/Lem-Sip mixture and sent me off to school this morning. It actually works - for about three hours. I'm back to sniffling and talking out of my nose and sneezing. I sound like a chipmunk on the phone.

We fly tomorrow. I am fully equipped with Strepsils, Sudafed, Lem-Sips and Earplanes, as well as Nurofen and Anadin. I might explode.

We're also equipped with Cheesy Wotsits, McCoy's Salt and Vinegar crisps and Mars Bars.

Canada, here we come.
