Muse Monday – Just Give Us Drugs (and Hot Tea)

Okay, my darlings, a short post today. My muse, Bridget, and I both have the flu. Fever of 102, body aches, general malaise. When dear Bridgie doesn’t even feel good enough to read or watch a BBC movie on Netflix, you can tell things are dire.
I usually try to bring you a tip on the care and feeding of Muses every Monday, but today all Bridgie wants to do is huddle under the covers and take medicine. Tamiflu, advil, mucinex, you name it, Bridget is jonesing for it.
So all I can do is give you the recipe for the citrus tea that has been our prime nourishment for the past three days. If you, your muse, or anyone you love gets the crud this winter, a hot cuppa this won’t cure you, but it might just make you feel a little better.


2 cups TANG (the powdered drink mix)
2 cups sugar
¾ cup instant tea with lemon
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ cup ground cloves

Mix it all together and store in an airtight container. To prepare, use 2 – 3 teaspoons to a cup of hot water.
And now, Bridget and I are going to crawl back under our duvet and hope that we live to see the morrow.

  1. where’s the booze? Needs Schnapps. Great herbal remedy, is schnapps! Jillian

  2. Aww, I hope you and Bridget feel better! I’ve been hitting the hot toddies lately to prevent getting sick and God willing, it’ll work (and help me sleep better at night!) 😉
