What’s Working for me Wednesday


This post comes to you courtesy of Fireball cinnamon whiskey.
I almost didn’t write a What’s Working for me Wednesday post because I developed a sore throat rather suddenly today. This is not just a sore throat either. It’s extreme pain and affecting my right ear as well.I cannot get an appointment at the local medical centre until 12:45pm on Friday.

I forced down about 6 spoonfuls of homemade chicken and leek soup then had to give up. It was far too painful to continue. I’m not worried about this factor. I embrace every opportunity to forgo food because it’s not very often that I do. Oh man, I’m in pain.

Thank goodness I had a brand new bottle of Fireball on the shelf. If you have not had the chance to try this fine alcohol from Canada, I urge you to do so. I’ve had 4 small shots so far this evening. Purely for medicinal reasons, I assure you. The following photos tell a story but please do not think it’s the whiskey making me wince and grimace; it’s the pain from swallowing anything. Believe you me, I feel much better since partaking in the shots. And it won’t stop at 4. I will go on…….

Fireball is what is working for me this Wednesday!!

Down the hatch

Oh that hurts

Up and running around the dining room…yes in my jammies!

Please help me…


Why do I have so much saliva to swallow?

Going back for round 2

So, what’s working for you this Wednesday? Ummmm, excuse me I have, ummmm things to shoot, I mean drink do. I have important things to do.

  1. I really hope you feel better soon, but in the meantime, medicinal whisky is allowed. Bye the way – actually getting a post up here today is real dedication to your craft 🙂

  2. Turns out it’s tonsillitis!!! I spent all morning at the medical centre and am now on dreaded anti-biotics!! I feel like crap and have just now found the energy to check emails (it’s after 5pm).

  3. I have the same issue. Nothing works but my co workers said to try Fireball. Your post will give me the strength to hammer some down. I need relief. Andrew Long Beach, CA

    • Hi Andrew!
      The fireball was a fun test but I did have to go on anti-biotics for severe tonsillitis! Fireball is great though…in moderation, of course! Thanks for stopping by Kai Chronicles.
