For the last few days our Miss V has been coughing and clearing her throat, and today she's got a full-fledged case of The Ick. So today she's been home, drowning her sorrows in anime and playing WAY too much online. (Can't imagine where she gets that from.) She's been trying to avoid doses of cough syrup since she hates the taste, but I AM A MEAN AUNTIE who insists that she take it anyway. Muahahaha!
"You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Fred.") If this doesn't clear up within a day or two, it's off to the doctor. Meanwhile, lots of hot baths and ginger tea and bed rest for V.
