“Oh the weather outside is frightful” . . . NOT!
It’s 70 degrees here today on the 8th of December!
“and my dear, you’re so delightful” . . . NOT!
My dear husband is sick with a horrible cold. Yes, he’s still as delightful as one can be when one is sick.
Singing the rest of this Christmas song might have brought a ‘slight’ smile to my congested and stuffy-headed husband, but for a little physical assistance, I knew that it would be better if I helped nurse his head and chest cold with some humble home-made chicken broth and wonderful pasta noodles that I brought home from Italy.
Plus, I don’t have a great voice for singing!
As they say in the old wives’s tale, eat chicken soup to help cure the common cold.
Whether there is any truth to that wisdom or not, I know that chicken soup certainly helps ‘mentally’ when a loved one is under the weather.
