Well, I’ve recovered enough to do useful things in the space between naps. Like tell you the traditional Scottish cure for a heavy cold.

You will need:
One hat
One four-poster bed
One bottle of whisky

1) Put hat on a post at the foot of the bed.
2) Crawl into the bed.
3) Drink whisky until the hat moves.

Your cold will not trouble you for the rest of the day. And you won’t be thinking about the cold next morning either. You’ll be thinking about your hangover.
