MAGIC COUGH JUICE!

Dear Ones –

So…I've been sick for about ten days now with this bullshit chest cold, distinguished by a cough that makes me feel like a doomed minor character in a tragic Russian novel.

Last night at midnight, coughing myself crazy and unable to sleep, I went on Twitter and asked if anyone had good suggestions for home remedies for coughs. (Because where else would you go at midnight for quality medical care, but Twitter?)

Everyone submitted their best advice, and I took feverish (literally!) notes. Then, this morning, I mixed together pretty much all the major ingredients everyone had suggested, and boiled it down into a powerful fluid, which I am now calling MAGIC COUGH JUICE.

Here's what we got:

Ginger
Turmeric
Lemon
Pineapple Juice
Honey
Cayenne Pepper
Garlic Powder

I've been drinking it all day, you guys, and I'm pretty sure it's working! Coughing is definitely on the wane***. I don't feel like I'm auditioning for Les Mis anymore! I think we may be on to something here!

Feel free to patent this recipe, someone!

And tonight, just before bed, I plan to drink one last cup of MAGIC COUGH JUICE, but with the addition of the final remaining ingredient a few wise souls suggested on Twitter:

Cognac.

…and to all a good night!

Heart,
LG
