Our family has been hit with a cold. Stayed in bed most of the day. Made it to the sacrament meeting in another ward, so that I could stay home with the sick kids during our block while Sarah went to church. She felt good enough to go.
Started feeling better in the evening after some salt water gargling, garlic chewing, and horseradish sniffing and swallowing. Remembered a Russian saying that horseradish is no sweeter than radish. I'll tell you that for sure.
Benjamin is growing up to be my son. I convinced him to try my horseradish treatment before he went to bed. His immediate comment was that there would be no way in the world he would do it again, but then in the next instant he opened the fridge, pulled out a piece of garlic and started sucking on it. I suppose garlic tastes like candy after horseradish.
