Anything you can do.......

Last night I got into bed and coughed a bit.

Then a bit more.

And a bit more.

Then a long coughing fit.

I got up to get a drink of warm water.

Got back in bed.


Got up for a tissue.

Got back in bed.


"Right, that's it!" yelled husband suddenly, "I've had enough. It's been four months and you are still coughing. I can't stand it any longer. Rant, rant, rant. Blah, blah, blah" (You get the gist)

I lay there quietly giggling away while he continued with his outburst.

I waited until he'd finished ranting then I quietly said:

"I've put up with your snoring for 16 years"


He he he!

No sympathy from him then?!!!

Sorry to hear you are still suffering. There are loads of children at school with colds at the moment, a perfect germ environment!

Direct & deadly - the best way to stop a ranting husband! ;)

Your bronchitus is hanging around though isn't it. Hope it's coming to an end soon.

That was funny. Tit for Tat!

My son has a cough like that. it went on for months & he has been diagnosed with Cough Variant Asthma.He has an inhaler to use.
Seems that a bad attack of bronchitis brought it on.
