Today's muse: Three Word Wednesday
Today's words: devious / frown / venomous
I have a horrible cold. It is consuming me. So, why not write about it.

I should have paid attention to the warning, but I chose to ignore the light tickle at the back of my throat. Now, venomous bile has meandered down my throat and lodged itself in my lungs.
My cough is wet and thick; my chest threatens to implode with every bark.
There are forty-two razor blades lodged in my throat. I frown in silence each time I swallow; moaning, I discovered, makes it worse.
My only solace is that I have managed to share this devious virus with my husband.
I shall not die alone.
