I'm not exactly in the grilling, chilling, watching fireworks mode you'll find much of the country in on Independence day. I'm more in the moaning, groaning, resting as much as I can state of mind.
Because I have found myself with a brutal gastrointestinal bug on this sunny July day. I'll spare you the ugly details. At least I can't blame it on bad seafood this time.
So while others enjoy their hotdogs and potato salad and fireworks displays; I will be exercising my freedom to consume sips of clear chicken soup and seltzer water between naps on the couch.
I do wish all of you a very happy 4th of July. And I hope you're enjoying your day.
Maybe save me some watermelon for when I feel better?
