What Color Are Your Eggs?

There are so many kinds of chicken soup these days.  Chicken soup for the soul, for the body, for your cat, your dog, your turtle, your toenail, and yes, for the common cold. If chicken soup is supposed to help cure a cold,  any second now my nose will stop running, my ears will stop aching, my throat won’t scratch and Dean will stop covering his ears every time I cough.  Because in the last 48 hours I have eaten lots and lots of chicken soup.  Actually, in the last 48 hours I have eaten almost nothing BUT chicken soup. 

A steaming bowl of chicken/noodle soup for lunch?  Why, thank you.  I don’t mind if I do.

For dinner I believe just one luscious bowl of chicken and rice soup will suffice.  I will have it straight up tonight.  No crackers.   Oh, and might I have an Ibuprophen on the side?

Today’s lunch special is hearty chicken soup with wide noodles?  How delightful.  And please bring my decongestant with my lemon tea. 

A gourmet delight of thick country chicken soup for dinner sounds very pleasing.  The orange flavored cough syrup will pair nicely with it.  I believe I will splurge and add a side of soda crackers if you don’t mind. 

No, you must be mistaken.  I plucked before I left home.

Cathy, you sound a bit grumpy. But colds do make some people grumpy. We flew from Denver to Denton, TX, to get a few more miles between your cold bug and us. You can give it to Al as our Casper representative.

Chicken soup gets really old, really fast. I hope you start feeling better before you OD.
