Things have been a little…sniffly…around my house lately. With fall finally unfurling, and a big change in the South Carolina weather, we’re facing that wonderful thing known as “Sinus Season.”
Not to be out-sicked by the many of South Carolinians currently snorting and snotting into their tissues, my husband came down with a case of “I Feel Like Poo.” Thus, our most recent conversations have sounded like this:
Abby: Good morning, honey.
Brian: snnnnorttttttt hack hack spit
Abby: Did you sleep ok?
Brian: AHHH—CHOO! sniff sniff
Abby: Hey, babe. What do you want for dinner?
Brian: unnnnngh cough cough HACK

Fortunately, after a weekend of rest and Claritin, Brian seems to be well on the mend. Thank goodness. I don’t know how much more snorting and snuffing we can take. Feel better soon, babe! XO
