ON THE BACK BURNER

August 31

When I left Anchorage a week ago, I was fine. When I landed in Seattle, 48 hours later, I had a cold. I blame this on the filter system on airlines. And the fact that I was squeezed between strangers ,with a middle seat. I was pretty OK during the day, but I was having trouble sleeping. Nose running, throat scratchy,achey . The usual cold stuff. After two nights of having restless sleeping, I decided to go for a PM product that relieves the symptoms and lets you sleep. It works. I slept all night. But it tastes horrible. We looked up the ingredients. It is supposed to taste bad, so you don't really want to take it again. The acting ingredient works on your brain ,telling it that you don't want to cough. It actually does nothing for the cough. Now I don't know if I want to play brain games again. I really just want the cough addressed, and the runny nose. I am wondering  if a placebo would work as well. I think that I will try a spoonful of sugar and see if I can fool my brain. Good night moon, good night brain.
