Tales from the Trenches: The man cold continueth.

I bought the plain Greek yogurt-- the kind he said he wanted-- and it "tastes like paste."  When I put some vanilla extract in it, he claimed that it made it taste like licking an envelope.

They don't make sugar free cough drops without aspartame, except for little kid honey ones and Hubs is determined that he can't do honey.  That could be true because if you get honey out of your zone of living, you can have a reaction to it due to bees, pollens . . . and given his allergies, I wouldn't be surprised.

He doesn't like the Scotties tissues that I have in stock because they are "dusty" and "make [him] cough."  The toilet paper that we buy in a bulk box from Sam's doesn't present a dust issue.  Who knew?  :S

He's coughed and sneezed all over the bedroom, which is fine.  Even though I changed the sheets to my very favorite extra soft LL Bean flannel sheets, I don't get to sleep there.  I slept on the couch.  Well, he decided to lie all over the couch today, too.  Um, thanks?

He had a fever of 100 F, but it's gone now.  It was a few hour thing.

Thank God men aren't in charge of reproduction.

That's all I'm sayin'.
