Yep, It's a Cold

I had the strangest chiropractor appointment yesterday. Dr. Marshal Montgomery made a few adjustments to my back and foot, but then he asked if I was congested because of my cold. The sneezing, runny nose portion of my cold hit yesterday and I ran out of tissues just before my vacation and then I went through the last of my co-worker's box who sits next to me and so I was travelling around the office stealing tissues from everyone equally so no one person felt the burden of my nose-blowing tissue needs. Of course, that's waaaaaaaaaaay too much information so I'll digress.

The treatment Dr. M gave me was massaging my sinuses and ensuring that all the gross build up didn't settle and become a real problem. He vibrated my head and my chest. And he patted my back on each side and of course, I got the full treatment because he also said a little rhyme for me about Betty and some bitter butter or something like that. It was entertaining and made me smile. It's his kids' favourite.

Then I locked my keys in the trunk of my car.

And I woke up this morning able to still breath which is a first for any cold I've ever had so something must have been good about the treatment in combination with the 4 litres of water I drank.

I must have started hallucinating because I swear I just heard my roommate say, "I am a gimp." I gotta go to bed.

It is a song from the Flintstones. I can't remember the exact words, however the song is playing in my head as I type.

Yes, yes, I am a HUGE fan of the Flintstones. I do have the first 3 sessions on DVD. Can't wait for the rest to come out.

Hee Hee!

Are you sure? He said it was a nursery rhyme that I found on the net:
Betty Butter bought a butter,
But the butter Betty Butter
bought was too bitter,
So Betty Butter bought a
better butter to make the
bitter butter better.

Ok,ok. I am wrong on this one. I must have been thinking of something else.. Oh well.

The way *I* heard it (from a Sharon, Lois and Bram record... it was my baby sister's! Honestly!)

Betty Botter bought some butter
And she said "This butter's bitter!
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter,
But a bit of better butter would but make my batter better!"
So, 'twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.

I'm frightened to think how many brain cells I have occupied with stuff like this...

Amy! You're a trivia machine! That was it exactly. I *thought* it was longer than the one I found.
