Haiku- Achoo


The illness has hit
Sneezing, sniffling, coughing
But no vomiting! (:

Found some relief, though
Puffs with Vicks are heavenly
So glad we found them!

Leave a trace of Vicks
With each wipe; I love that smell
Helps with stuffiness

Husband says creepy
Like sleeping with his granny!
Too bad, so sad, dude!

More Haiku Friday participants here.

I love AFF's comment!

My kids are healthy, but I'm a bit sick, too. They love it b/c I can't yell!

Happy Friday!

So funny! I LOVE Vicks . . . gotta get those Puffs! Have you heard the hint about putting Vicks on the soles of your feet (and then putting on socks, of course)at night? It's supposed to help quell that nagging cough. Works well, I think. :P

Despite the ailments, that 'ku was awesome! I am still sick-free, and just in case I asked for some Tamiflu from my doctor.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment, it's always nice to see you!
