I wish I was 20

I feel a bit less snotty today
I am getting bleeding sick of feeling sick

Things were looking a little better until teatime
When
I was just sitting down to watch 
Strictly
When, I let out a huge cough
Farted at the same time
And heard something pop in my back on the left hand side just under my rib cage
I think I have pulled a few muscles
It's excruciatingly painful when I cough though not when I breath
Oh tits

I'm off to bed

  3. I wouldn't be twenty (or heaven forbid a teenager) again for any money. Thirties perhaps...
    Get better soon - and look after yourself. Please.

  4. I have a birthday tomorrow and I would give up all my wiseness to be 20 again. I'd just start over without a care. Sorry you are sick. Something has been going around that causes a horrible cough here in my neck of the woods. My cousin's wife had been coughing so hard she cracked a rib. I am getting ready to go in hibernation for the cold/flu season because I don't want to be around any germs. The older I get the more of a germaphobe I become. Hope you are soon feeling better. I thought everyone had a TV in the bedroom these days!!

    2. Well, I have the TV on and read too. It's a habit of being alone and having tinnitus!! Comforting voices and dulling of the ringing!

  5. Hope you haven't done too much damage to your ribs and you are soon feeling better!

  8. Never cough and fart at the same time! Wish I was 20 again knowing what I know now. I think. The Argentinian Tango was brill, especially the lift at the end. Get better soon.

  9. You sound like that Rod Stewart song, John: "I wish I knew what, I know now, when I was younger." Hope you feel better soon!

  10. Oh you have my extreme sympathies John, not that I ever fart... but as an asthmatic cough quite a bit despite meds and I have had a serious coughing fit and put my back out on several excruciating occasions. Get well soon. xx

  14. i think you are well entitled to wallow for a little bit!

  15. Ouch - you poor thing. I cracked a rib due to having a hacking cough once so I hope that's not what you've done. Take care x

  16. Take care of yourself, you are at least 20.

  17. oh my dogs and cats! you need a nurse to get you well again!

  18. I hope Chris or some kindly neighbours are checking in on you. x

  19. Tits and bollocks. But not twenty; you'd be just as bad off with that maneuver under the influence of alcohol. Although I cannot recommend a good time. Hope you're better for your shift.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I wish I just had my 20 year old body again...it could bounce right back from any sort of insult - though a simultaneous cough and a fart are quite the challenge. Please heal up soon...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Bless your heart!

    Heal soon.

  22. I think that having a new ill/injury just when you think you're improving from the old is much worse than getting sick/injured in the first place. It just seems so unfair! I hope you wake up feeling better.

  23. I was pregnant when I was twenty. Favorite Young Man was born just a little more than a month after my 21st birthday. That was a very difficult time in my life. I will stay right here at 55. I hope you feel better soon.

    Love,
    Janie

  24. I wish I was 30. Or 40. Or even 50.
    Get well soon, John.

    1. Just 60 would be fine for me, Terry, but 20, 30, 40, 50 are far, far nicer.

  25. I am 24 and sometimes I wish I was a child again. Get well soon John.

  26. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
    A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; (Ecclesiastes)

    1. The time to die comment worries me just a little

  27. Coughed and farted at the same time..must have sounded like an accordian.

  28. well, as you know it's likely intercostal muscles, and a result of deconditioning of said muscles.....you'd probably experience the same thing if you did some weird yoga maneuvers. Nothing works except time, and a goodly dose of anti-inflammatory.

  29. Personally I would go to bed specifically to avoid 'Strictly'.

  30. Sending good thoughts for a speedy recovery. Get well, dammit!

  31. God fobid that I could be twenty again ! I wouldn't want all that anguish .It was not a good time for me. Get better soon ,we need you up and about.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hope you're getting some canine comforts. They'll surely know instinctively that something's not right. Hope it's just one of those passing nuisances, and wishing you a speedy recovery

  34. Wedge a nice warm dog or a nice warm Chris against the pain and rest.
    Wish my body was younger but not the rest of me. 50 in body would do very nicely thank you.

  35. Well it's 9.17 am and I slept like a top, having said that I now suspect I have actually pulled several of my " flank" muscles so it's still bloody painful for me to cough and bend.
    Thanks for all the best wishes
    In the great scene of things
    I m fine

  36. Well, I'm told that 60 is the new 40, that's good, I'm 60 or is it 40 ? towards the end of this month.......
    Rub some Ellimans' linament over the area (wash your hands after and don't touch any sensitive areas!), you'll stick to high heaven but boy is it good! When I used to go horse riding many years' ago, the stable owner reeked ot it but, he used the Horse version, even stronger. When I told my Dad, he started using it too!
    Hope you are not so sore soon xx

    ReplyDelete
  37. Get some of that liniment - rest up for a few days - keep warm - hot toddies at night (whisy, lemon juice and honey with a tad of hot water) and dogs in bed to keep you warm.
    Hope you watched Strictly though - it was jolly good last night. Just wish Judy Murray would be voted out though.

  38. It's a bugger getting older. Take care xx

  39. I am thrilled you have found a comfortable position for coughing and farting in unison.

    Heal quickly.
