Five Golden Rings (3)

"Eat a bug every morning, and nothing worse will happen for the rest of the day."

We have those words attached to our wall underneath a picture of a bright and chirpy frog. My Spouse reflected upon it the other day when consuming a remedy of some kind or another. For weeks now our house has been a scene of medicines and tissues, cough syrups and cures and tubes, and half-finished glasses of salty water for gargling purposes.
There might be nothing worse than having to take pills for health on a daily basis and we were both glad that this would be a temporary anomaly in our lives.
I am also more glad than I can say about Mater's cure for sinus problems: she recommended that I boil a saucepan of water and breathe the steam through a towel into my nose. It sounded a little intimidating but I tried it for five minutes at a time and what joy- after three separate efforts my face no longer hurt and my nose was clear.
I am certain that no store-bought medicine could have achieved that result.
