I'm Going for the Gold

... in coughing.

I have an EXCELLENT chance of winning.

I've been training rigorously for weeks now, and everyone around me is convinced I'll win. Short of a lung flying out of my chest, there shouldn't be a problem. I've got this down pat. I'm GOOD at it.

My family has bought up all available stock in these.

My boss ordered one of these.

My husband just purchased these.

Bob Costas and Matt Lauer have contacted my agent to schedule an interview.

Stayed tuned for the most exciting Olympic event E.V.E.R. I'll make America proud.

Ok, no fair, you make me laugh at you and then I feel guilty for laughing at you because you're sickly. :)

I've had coughs like that where it seems that you will cough for the Not fun at all. Hope you feel better soon my friend!
