Groovy has a fever.
So what, you say, it's the flu. You're supposed to get a fever.
No, no, NO.
This is phenomenal because Groovy NEVER gets a fever. Truly, I have not had a fever since my first year of marriage almost 26 years ago.
Of course it's only 99.6ºF, but that's HUGE when you consider that my normal temp is 97ºF.
I am thrilled because I feel like I have achieved something dramatic and sympathy inducing!
In other news, I have decided to fight back against this virus by taking zinc gluconate and 500 mg of vitamin C every 2 hours. In case you don't know, several studies have shown that a deluge of zinc gluconate and vitamin C in the early part of a cold or flu will help to considerably shorten the duration of the virus.
There's only one teensy little problem:
Megadoses of C cause diarrhea and I have a cough.
