OK, now I can write it off.
I woke up to a dry, scratchy throat and it hurts to swallow. I haveny had a throat infection in so long but I still remember exactly what it feels like. If this turns into full blown tonsillitis for my birthday...well that will just top it all off won't it!? Can't go on holiday, can't celebrate with friends or family...just stuck in my new house that won't even have flooring with a really bad throat infection. Cool. Thanks. Cheers universe, if I hadn't totally wrote this years birthday off, I definitely can now!
Cracking out my old penicillin regardless of it being out of date...just trying to head this off.
