Dear Immune System

Posted on

Hi, how you been? Feels like we don’t really hang much any more.

Do you remember all those years when I was a kid? Had to stay healthy for all those gymnastic competitions!
Then there was that time in high school with glandular fever – didn’t knock us back though! Didn’t miss a day of school!
But you know, time passes and I feel we’ve grown apart. Few years ago I had my tonsils removed, we got through that ok I thought. Maybe I was wrong.
Since then I don’t think things have gone very smooth between us. I’m sick ALL the time.

I’ve done what I can to help really, I eat all the right meats and vegetables to give you everything you need – lots and lots of garlic too! But I don’t see much response. I get that we probably want different things but I thought we had a mutual agreement here? Stay healthy and everything works out great?
Ok so, maybe you ARE working hard and its just one of those thing that you get so behind its impossible to get caught up with all your work? I get it, I know the feeling. But heck, you must be REALLY behind!

Or you know, maybe there’s something I could do to help? I’ve given you everything I can think of that you like and I’ve had every blood test the poor doctor can think of, to be honest I think our doctor is a little sick of seeing us so often!
I guess what I’m trying to say is, it would be really nice to get along again. You know, be there for each other? If there IS something you need, you’re going to have to make it obvious, communicate with me via blood.

Frankly Immune System, you need to step up your game. I had plans this weekend. BIG plans.

I was going to make this beautiful two tier square cake covered in vibrant green marshmallow fondant for my future-one-day SIL, as her trial engagement cake.
And now it’s all ruined. Because you didn’t keep your end of the bargain. And I thought we were friends!
I also think you owe me, and my readers an apology. I’d rather not play the blame game here Immune System, but well, let’s be honest with one another, it IS your fault I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks.
And you should probably have a chat to my brain and get it into line, I have a feeling the two of you are now responsible for my readers thinking I’ve lost the plot!

Well, at least I know my readers will understand my burning desire to get in and cook to make myself feel better. But I can’t. Stupid sickness.

So lets leave it here. Hope to hear from you soon!
