My Poker Face Doctor and Good News - Aloha TQT Sillies

Today was good news. My lungs are fine but my upper respiratory system is in a funk. Still can't breathe through my nose, which means I can't taste my food or have any peace.

I have medicine prescribed.
I hope they work.
I do not like pills!

My doctor has a poker face. He doesn't seem to think anything else is wrong. I hope so too.

Bah I'm getting old.

My kids however would vehemently deny this :) I love them.

So easy questions for you:

1. Give me an easy tip on how to take pills. (I seem to choke every time!)
2. Do you suffer from allergies, Seasonal or other? 
And we are doing the Sillies of course :)
The farts:
One day I met a sweet woman and fell in love. When it became apparent that we would marry, I made the supreme sacrifice and gave up beans. 
Some months later, on my birthday, my car broke down on the way home from work. Since I lived in the countryside I called my wife and told her that I would be late because I had to walk home. On my way, I passed by a small diner and the odour of baked beans was more than I could stand. With miles to walk, I figured that I would walk off any ill effects by the time I reached home, so I stopped at the diner and before I knew it, I had consumed three large orders of baked beans. All the way home, I made sure that I released all the gas.
Upon my arrival, my wife seemed excited to see! me and exclaimed delightedly: "Darling I have a surprise for dinner tonight."
She then blindfolded me and led me to my chair at the dinner table. I took a seat and just as she was about to remove my blindfold, the telephone rang. She made me promise not to touch the blindfold until she returned and went to answer the call. The baked beans I had consumed were still affecting me and the pressure was becoming most unbearable, so while my wife was out of the room I seized the opportunity, shifted my weight to one leg and let one go. It was not only loud, but it smelled like a fertilizer truck running over a skunk in front of a pulpwood mill. I took my napkin from my lap and fanned the air around me vigorously. Then, shifting to the other cheek, I ripped off three more. The stink was worse than cooked cabbage. Keeping my ears carefully tuned to the conversation in the other room, I went on like this for another few minutes. The pleasure was indescribable. When eventually the telephone farewells signalled the end of my freedom, I quickly fanned the air a few more times with my napkin, placed it on my lap and folded my hands back on it feeling very relieved and pleased with myself. My face must have been the picture of innocence when my wife returned, apologizing for taking so long. She asked me if I had peeked through the blindfold, and I assured her I had not. At this point, she removed the blindfold, and twelve dinner guests seated around the table chorused: "Happy Birthday!" I fainted!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Hopefully the pills will work some magic and you can get to breathing again! I don't have any tips on taking them but I'm wishing you lucky.

    And that second hair picture... oh my I can relate, lol.

    1. Oy girl I hope they do. I'm a shadow of myself.

  2. the fart story is classic. Funny as can be.
    1) I don't know how else to take pill, I just use some water to make it flow down easier while I am swallowing.
    2) no allergies, thank god. I think it would drive me nuts.

    1. Amanda, it's a blessing not to suffer from the allergies :)

  3. I cant give you any tips on the pills.. I just throw them in my mouth and start drinking water (I think they have coating you ask for at the pharmacy, but not sure...) GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
    Love the funnies today ;)

  4. Pretty much the same as everyone else, I put the pills in my mouth and drink some water.

    I do have seasonal allergies but not severe. I take an over the counter antihistamine to keep it under control.

    I hope the medicine works and you are feeling better soon.

    1. So glad you have nothing severe. It's a blessing hon.
      And thank you.

  5. Your way or there are also very difficult to drink the bitter medicine they annoy me. I usually have to drink with sugar .

  6. HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA First of all I had to get that out of my system.. too funny! Secondly, CONGRATS and your diagnosis. As far as taking pills I get something to drink. PUt them in my mouth (don't think about it), and take a gulp of liquid and SWALLOW. All done! Only thing I'm allergic too is iodine, bee stings, and salt water fish. :( I love fish :( Bendryl helps with that though. Have a great week-end dahhhhhling!!!

    1. I'm always thinking about it Doll and then I close my eyes tight and then it keeps coming back up or getting stuck at my throat! Ugh.

  7. FUNNY!!! I have heard a different version but this one is good too.

    As for the pills, I have a tip:

    Mix them in apple sauce and spoon them in with the sauce. You will naturally swallow them.

    1. Maybe yogurt since I can't ...don't like the a-sauce :)

  8. I loved your joke and hope you feel better. I cut large pills in half with my pill cutter. Colette, take zinc, but not within 2 hours of taking vitamin c. drink chamomile tea as it a natural antiseptic, or drink ginger tea; perhaps both.

    1. Thank you Judy. I'll have to be very careful with the zinc.
      And even though I only drink green tea, I'll find the chamomile.


Thank you for visiting. I love your comments and will visit you also if you have a hyperlink. #ThisIsTheDay
