Don’t make me gurggle please!

Mimi’s remedy for a sore throat ~ Galoo-dard

I stayed home today to rest and to try to get over this soar throat. My remedy for getting better tends to consist of rest and orange juice. My husband on the other hand takes illness very seriously and likes to chalk me full of meds and vitamin c tablets. Mimi Jan on the other side always recommends the same prescription…

1. Mix warm water with salt and gurggle away – YUCK! 

To be honest I haven’t gurggled today…I have to be on my death bed to gurggle. I just can’t do it even though I know it works like  a dream. If you’re brave enough or in enough pain you should try it.
