a mystery and a fun solution

I use a polyester stretch swim cap. As usual, this morning, I put on my suit, I stuffed my cap into the top of my suit for safekeeping, I put my clothes on over my suit and went to the pool.  At the pool, I took off my clothes in the locker room and headed out to the pool.  I took out my goggles and my music player and reached into my boob area to get my cap and it was gone.  Disappeared.  Not there.  Not anywhere in my suit.

I later looked into all my clothes and watched my path back home right to the spot where I last saw it and the cap is gone. Disappeared. Nowhere to be found.  A mystery... as yet unsolved.

Happily, I had a spare in my swim bag so all was ok.  They are cheap caps so really no big deal, just way curious.


This winter, so far (and I'm blaming it on winter because my doctor does) I've been plagued by coughing fits.  It's a dry, tickle in your throat, can't breathe without coughing cough that is really incredibly annoying.  If I'm around people, it's embarrassing - there's no way to stop it.  It sounds bad and it makes breathing a problem. My rescue inhaler helps but not immediately.

I am delighted to have discovered that a fabulous way to stifle the cough immediately is hot chocolate!!  I have Nestle's powder - 2 or 3 scoops and hot water from my Keurig and BAM, I'm in business. It's delicious and cough is gone!
