Me & My Muse – Day 1273: Starting off sick

When you celebrate the arrival of 2017 with a cold, go to bed at 1;00 a.m., and then get up at 10:00 a.m., you’re not going to feel that good.

And from last night to today, I have lost count at how many tissues I have used.  Today is the day to recover, since I work tomorrow.

To sum up last night, my friend came over and we celebrated Christmas.  After a little gaming, we took a break, while I made some New Years Eve snacks. Since we need shrimp, I then went to the store to get a few things before it closed at 5:30.  I then went to McDonald’s with my brother and friend (since he was hungry)  and got a Vernor’s.  I wasn’t in the mood for greasy food since I wasn’t feeling well.  It took me forever to get my Vernor’s, since the lady in front of me took forever with her transactions.  The clerk tried to process a gift card twice.  It didn’t work either time so the lady bought four scratch off tickets instead.  While this was going on, the line swelled to more than six people behind me.  Come on!  All I wanted to do was buy my Vernor’s.  I was feeling awful and i didn’t want to wait in line any longer.  As it was, my brother and friend had already already bought their food from McDonald’s and was still waiting for me to buy my one bottle of Vernors.  I finally bought it and left with my brother and friend.

I opened the bottle of Vernors in my friend’s car.  Big mistake.  The Vernors fizzed up and erupted, splattering all over my pants.  When I got home, I took a shower and put my clothes in the laundry and dried them afterward.  I then watched Animaniacs with my brother and friend and played Fantasy Life, a new game that I got from my friend.  While I was determined to enjoy New Year’s Eve, I was in survival mode, due to the awful cold that I had. My nose was stuffy and my eyes were watering.  I was drinking cold medicine like water and was just trying to survive until midnight.

After that, we rang in the new year.  Me and my brother ran outside and honked the car horns, letting the entire neighborhood know that 2017 has arrived.  After that, me, my brother and my friend toasted to the new year.  We made a couple toasts, celebrating the future inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump and celebrating the upcoming 2017 game Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the launch of the Nintendo Switch.

After the toast, I got ready for bed.  I needed to sleep the cold off.

With this done, I will now relax.  I will have some more snacks and try to sleep this cold off some more.

Today’s high is going to be 38 degrees and the silver lining is being able to ring in 2017 with my brother and friend last night.

To those of you who are enjoying the first day of the year, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  You’re not feeling well?  That’s too bad!  Try to get some rest tonight.  You will need it for tomorrow!  Trust me…
