I woke up at 2 AM with a sore throat. Now, I'm hoping (it's a long shot) that it may be allergies, but it kept me up the rest of the night - despite drinking a cup of herbal tea and then, in desperation, taking some Tylenol 3 (I can't take aspirin or NSAIDS). I couldn't even fall back asleep with the drugs. I am a sad ass puppeh today. With a sore throat. In July. At least it isn't craptastically hot today - only supposed to get up to 90 instead of 97 like yesterday. Those 7 degrees make a helluva difference.

I wonder whether alcohol would help? Don't tell me to gargle with salt water, it makes me gag.
