- Your cold remedies?
Laid low with shocking cold today, but I work from home so got to soldier on.
Wife bringing lemons home for homemade honey/lemon/ginger drinks and I've popped a couple of paracetamol – but what do you lot do/take when the lurgy strikes?
Apart from two capsules of MTFU every six hours, obviously.Posted 8 years ago
there's nothing ironic in that post.
Definition: "the use of words to express something other than and especially the opposite of the literal meaning"
So… I'm not really having to "soldier on" and I'm not really taking "two capsules of MTFU" – they were ironic devices intended to pre-empt and deter people from posting replies like yours.
I can't believe I'm having a forum dispute about irony, I feel like such an internet cliché.
I'm off to make a hot toddy.

GCSF always seems to do the trick for me.

My gran's remedy for cold / flu and pretty much every other ailment….
Red hot bath (monkey hot) and a bottle of malt. Don't get out of bath until bottle empty (you may need assistance)and keep topping the bath up to keep it hot. Retire immediately to bed and sleep like the dead. When you wake in the morning cold will be gone.
From personal experience this has worked for every cold and flu type virus I've ever had. Not sure if it's the bath sweating it out or the whisky killing off everything but it works so I don't plan to argue with my gran's method.
PS this is not suggested for kids under 12, only give them a 1/2 bottle.Posted 8 years ago
