The Times that Try Men's Souls


Vuboq feels like crapola. Crapola that's been run over by a truck hauling hogs to the slaugherhouse. Crapola that's then been scrapped scraped [Happy now, Mush?] off the road with a Teflon spatula, shoved into a 1950s white and blue Corning Ware casserole dish and microwaved on high for 14 minutes.

Throat sore.
Head congested.
Nose a little stuffy.


Needless to say, I will not be attending happy hour this evening. Going to the Whole Foods. Buying provisions. Then, going home to self-medicate.

Maybe I can work on updating my resume for the job ...


  1. I hope you feel better soon, dear. *smooch*

  2. Awwww. :( I would make you an awesome batch of mashed potataoes for comfort food. Why are all the boys I know getting sick?

  3. awww poor you-boq.

    you might be sick, but your blog is great.

  4. Awwww. I hope you feel better soon. It's Victoria Day weekend here, and you're not allowed to be sick.


  5. awwww! i hope you feel better real soon.

    when my friend's wife would feel unwell with a cold, he would make a miso soup with mushrooms and hot chili. for her it's a real comfort food and helps her sinuses clear up at least for a little while.

    at least you'll probably feel better for your long weekend a week from now.

  6. I'm gonna break the trend and not start with "awwwww". Get better soon Mr V!

  7. See what all that kissing and sex leads to?

    I kid -- I kid. I hope that you feel better.

  8. WHY IS VUBOQ NOT ON IM? IS VUBOQ HOME SICK?!?!?!?! Get well, Vuboq!
