If I cough much more, I'll be coughing my legs up.
permalink Australian flu?
permalink I don't think so...
It's just coughing. Endless, harsh, painful coughing.

No other cold/flu symptoms...
permalink stay in bed
they'll be round to paint the red cross on the door presently.
permalink This has absolutely floored me
Light-headed, shivery, and can barely stay standing for more than a minute.
permalink So back to flu then..
permalink To be fair
Like Amy says, that does sound pretty flu-like to me

Personally, I think you're just shagging too much! ;-)
permalink sounds like wot I had
was horrible like that for about 3-4 days, then abated to just a couple of weeks of continuous coughing

I prescribe box sets and lemony drinks
permalink Australian flu
Or plurecy

What was your footware situation
permalink I had the cough from that for 4 months.
4 months!

The flu that is, not pleurisy.
permalink Were you wearing wellies,?
permalink Also isnt all your flu
Australian flu
permalink I kind of presumed what you were calling Aussie flu
was the one that went through here last year.
permalink That'll be
Australasian flu then, thanks very much!
permalink I think you took it back to there

Ahh, you want to claim some of the fame for infecting C_I too?
permalink Nah
I was just thinking we should get some credit for probably brewing it up too last winter. Mind you, the Saffers will then probably want in on it too!
permalink Thought I was getting better yesterday evening
But it slammed me overnight. No voice this morning. Very little sleep.

and refering to Bea as "it" is not very polite.
permalink Ha!
That made me smile anyway!

Sex is about the furthest thing from my mind, I have to say.
permalink Years ago,
in the grip of a manky dose of flu, a girlfriedn and I decided to have a fuck, see what happened. Made it waaaaay worse.
permalink Still totally worth it, right?
permalink Involved
slightly more snot than usual.
permalink It's all just extra lube
when it comes down to it
permalink You’re so classy
permalink Yeah,
but some of this was knob snot (cock hockle, if you're from Up North).
permalink Talking of manky
nowhere on Reddit does wild quite like r/relationships
permalink *bork*
permalink *low 5*
Because a high would be too difficult.

Also suffering deeply and requiring the rest of the week off sick.
permalink I had that before Xmas
After 3 weeks went to the docs, apparently there's a very pernicious and virulent cough going round as well as the Australian and Japanese flus.
permalink That sounds like the bastard
permalink If it's the same one
good news is it just goes with no long tail of occasional coughing or other lasting effects
permalink Looking forward to that part
permalink Fuck this shit
Bea just made me have a tepid bath to get my temperature down and every time I cough every single muscle in my body hurts..
permalink "tepid"
is a really awful word. No-one ever uses tepid to describe a pleasant temperature.
permalink Yup. I chose it carefully
Oh goody. Running a temperature again and seeing flashes of light when I cough with my eyes shut.
permalink I assume
you're drugged up to the max?
permalink Oh yes.
Mostly just lying in the dark with my eyes closed.

Opening them occasionally to have a moan on here of course.
permalink Labyrinthitis, me.
Day two of insane levels of dizzy.
permalink I had that once.
I physically could not walk. I fell over ever second or two, it was weird as shit - I would have thought that my eyes could compensate for my ears.
permalink It’s so fucking odd.
But the GP was fairly sure it’s just the inflammation version and not the viral one, so it should be gone in another day or so. Lying in bed listening to films, and trying not to move my head too much
permalink Does this mean you are hallucinating
David Bowie in various geometrically impossible situations?
permalink I don't think
there's a day goes by when he doesn't..
permalink Ha ha
Fair point
permalink Aaaaaand I'm done.
permalink Guess the airport?
If you want.
permalink Mexico City, terminal 3
permalink Bora Bora
permalink RAF Middle Wallop
permalink Bfs
permalink It was BHX
Now I am in Amsterdam.
permalink I'm due out there on the 25th ish
permalink Annoyingly I am in California
permalink Hasn't California
Suffered enough?
permalink I am in a meeting.
I really, really need to poo.
permalink Just fucking excuse yourself
Get up, go, do, come back
permalink Announcing, on your return,
“I’d give that a few minutes if I were you! Right. What did I miss?”
permalink while doing Marcel Marceau
wafting hand and nose-peg impressions of course
permalink Possibly even a big sigh
and a "fookin' 'ell, that's better" as you reenter the room
permalink While still doing up your belt
with a copy of the Racing Post held in your armpit
permalink or
"I don't remember eating *that*"
permalink “Ooh, me ringpiece! Last night’s curry is giving me the burn!”
permalink "Someone give the coastguard a ring.
That one's a danger to shipping"
permalink Stop, raise one finger and say
"Actually, there's more" and leave the room again.
permalink raise a leg as though to let one off
before suddenly looking very worried and bolting from the room
permalink Pop back a few minutes later and ask
"I don't suppose anyone's got any spare pants?"
permalink GOTO 10
permalink Has anyone read The Finkler Question?
Worth it?

Got a copy?
permalink Guess the airport
permalink Hamster Jam?
permalink Heathrow
I am afraid.
permalink In anti-Manley news
My train was cancelled, but I was at the station just early enough to sprint onto the earlier one, meaning I both get to my destination on time and get a 50% refund. I also have no contrary opinions on anything.
permalink Yes you do.
