It was yummy, but it took me hours to eat because my throat was so swollen and sore. Om nom nom.
Finished off the throat drops early, so I picked up a bag of lemon-heads when I refilled my soda supplies. Of course they have beeswax in them, but they're hard candy and they work.
Then onion in noodles made otherwise just like the night before.
My throat still feels like I've been gargling glass.
When I was a kid I had tonsillitis every single year right around this time. I'd almost always be visiting my grandparents in Florida, where they used AC. Every single summer, same nasty sore throat. Every summer, same shot in the butt and pukey bubblegum flavored antibiotics. every summer the dream of getting the damned things out so I could eat Ice Cream all day long.
Every summer seeing that Ice Cream eating dream crushed. Believe me when I say I wish they'd just pulled them. That I still get nasty sore throats for the same reason is really annoying. Oh, and believe that I've also got a pretty nasty looking set of tonsils. Even when they look good.
When I grow up and have insurance and get this again, bet my pale scrawny behind I'm getting them cut out. I don't care that it's a strange thing to do to an adult. If I had a time machine I'd go back and have them cut out back when I was a kid.
But the tomatoes were good.
Oh, and tonsillitis? Just fancy doctor talk for "there's something up with the tonsils, but we really don't care what, since we just give you the bubblegum crap anyway."
