I have a cold – booo! hissss! – and want to feel better. Like many folks would do, I seek the advice of friends:
me: hi Joel, what's the best food for when you have a cold?
Joel: well, Olga's grandfather had a folk remedy…
he took a tablespoon of vodka, and put it into a large shot of vodka
then he curled up into a pile of blankets
me: you are the best
Joel: if that's not your style, i would recommend soup
He later corrected himself saying he'd meant to say a tablespoon of black pepper, but I think the way it originally came out sounded funnier.
Now I'm off to heat up some soup…
