Almond Butter Breyers

sweet, swollen-swallow

if you had a left tonsil
the size of two hells

it's about all you'd be
able to eat too

sticky keyboard

even ice cream is
hard
I'm too tired for a bowl

forget swallowing pills
form: CAPSULE
shape: OBLONG
color: SWEDISH ORANGE
(seriously)

they forgot size: WAY too big for someone with swollen tonsils
(duh)

"highly contagious"
the doctor said

well, at least I can play
sock puppet with the dog

This is painful and funny at the same time -- hard to pull off and you do it well. Hope you feel better.

thanks Nathan...the lovely broad-spectrum antibiotics are beginning to help...I can swallow now without wincing and making noises...

Oh no, I have a son who suffers with this. I hope you're feeling better already. Yes, it is painful and funny.

Thanks Jo, yes, I am feeling much better now! And yes, at least it made for a weekend of writing!
