My Head Cold In Eleven Tweets


I am a self professed Twitter neophyte. I’ve tried it before, but Twitter and I just never clicked. When I started this blog, I vowed that I would reach into uncomfortable territory and try to stretch myself as a writer. I recently read and was inspired by Susie Lindau‘s blog post, Twelve Reasons To Use Twitter. So, I set out to embrace this popular social media platform in the best way I know how, whining.

As you may know, by the title of my blog and my WordPress user name, I’ve been sick recently. Like, really sick. Not too long ago I finished a yearlong treatment of oral chemo that, thankfully, killed the desmoid tumor in my left leg. You’d think after a surgery, a year on Tamoxifen, and a year on oral chemo I’d be tough as nails. Alas, this is not the case. I’m kind of a whiner about things.

Case in point, the head cold I was recently plagued with. Let me assure you, I am not being hyperbolic when I use the term “plagued”. This thing will go down in CDC history as the worst snot, cough, and misery inducing bug ever to inflict a human. Ok, that might be a tad hyperbolic, but it was kind of miserable and my ear is still clogged up and I sound like Froggy from The Little Rascals. It was bad, y’all. Thankfully, Twitter was there to be my sounding board. And since I only have 38 Twitter followers, chances are you didn’t see it all go down.

If you liked this, well I’ve got good news for you. There is so much more that I offer on Twitter. There’s the tweeting and the retweeting and the untweeting. I’m not so sure about the last one. I haven’t gotten the lingo down just right. By all means, though, follow me and I’ll follow you and we’ll follow other people and hilarity will ensue. That is a guaran-damn-tee.
