I seem to have developed a cough that I can't get rid of. It's not really all that bad, but it manifests itself during nights. As in when I'm trying to sleep. There's also this disgusting taste in my mouth I'm not too fond of. You know, the one that tastes a bit like the lint in your bellybutton, after it has been marinated in some concoction consisting of dairy products gone bad, old socks and rotten fruits. And then some.
It's just a wee bit irritating at the moment. When I have more or less been thru it all and it looks like one of these days my life would (again! happy to say) be like it used to be: occasional bad breath, but nothing that brushing ones teeth wouldn't cure. Or a menthos.
There is also the phlegm. It most likely irritates the throat, thus causing the bleeding cough. Occasionally it gets a bit difficult and I have this ghastly sensation of needing to throw up which soon turns into coughing. Or vice versa (that ABC used to be). Odd, isn't it? And irritating when the writer just leaps off the tangent and does that. But I digress (which I just love to say whenever possible).
Mostly I've been OK. My brother came the other day and tried to carry every single bottle of Wild Cherry Pepsi from SMarket to our apartment. Many a bottle. We also tried this new kebab/pizza service. Not good. Pizza was OK'ish, but kebab was just flat, dull and uninspired. Boring. Avoid Dilber. But with a name like that, most of you probably already have.
I'm going to go shopping. Tuesday that is. Them julklappar. Apparently it's Christmas time. Jopas! And I really need to find something really bright and clever for my sister's kids.
They'll get books. But my mother? And that pesky brother-in-law! (Pesky as in good way.) Anoppi? Appi? My mother, did I mention her? Sister, yep... Difficult.
There are plenty of people to whom it is fun and easy to but presents. They are vocal about what they like, they are easily enthused and world is full of little things and bits that they like. Do you have these problems, my loyal readers? DO you find it easy to buy presents to YOUR loved ones?
Money helps. Adequate sum of money (like, say €25 000) would easily solve all my problems. Present-wise.
End of rant. I'll go and brush my teeth again and try to go back to sleep. Nighty-night and seasonal groanings!
