Day 3 - 100% Proof

The cold's been bad enough that I finally broke down and bought cough syrup yesterday. Benylin. Reminds me of being a kid. Staying home from school. Mom would go to work so I'd be alone to watch age-inappropriate movies in the afternoon. I remember Rosemary's Baby was a real eye-opener as a kid.

I wondered though, since alcohol is the first ingredient in most cough medicines, was I breaking my cleanse already?!! 

Turns out, most cough syrups contain about 5-10% alcohol, so it's not exactly Jack Daniels. I'm only having two teaspoons a couple times a day, so until I start pouring highballs or having it on the rocks, I'm sure I'll be fine. ;) 

25 days left to go!

btw here's a peek at the trailer for Roman Polanski's creepy thriller: a flick that saw me through at least a couple sick days way back when ...
