For future reference: trying to avoid the awful taste of cough syrup by slamming it down really fast doesn't work if you just end up inhaling it instead. Bleh, that was really gross, and made my coughing way worse than it was to begin with.
I am STILL sick with whatever cold bug I got last week. My poor body just wants sleep, but all I can give it is DayQuil and make it root around in deer carcasses all weekend. Maybe I have bovine tuberculosis. :-/
