Soup's on

There's a bug going around town -- an upper respiratory thing. Emmie was dragging herself around with it this weekend and I'm hearing reports of others getting knocked out by it as well. So, Sunday afternoon I made a huge batch of chicken soup (curative for Emmie, prophylactic for G-Dog and me). And as always, it's good stuff (if I do say so myself)!

Unfortunately, it doesn't work for insect bites, and some evil bug (fire ant?) bit me a few times under the strap of my teva when I was out bike riding yesterday -- the itching kept me up during the night and despite lots of ice, by morning my foot was swelled up to a pretty impressive size. Now if only I could come up with a soup for that...

You hippies are crazy! Soup will never work as a preventative for pregnacy! Plus, it's probably gonna scald something!



Also, Jesus says, share thy soup with thy neighbors. Especially the ones one street over and two streets down. Amen.

Ha ha! You made me LOL! And of course, if it's in the gospels, I'll have to acquiesce (but you'll have to wait 'til the next batch, because I've been felled by a bug -- as in insect -- and will have to eat the leftovers, since I can't cook).
