I have a cough as I do at least once a year. It lasts forever and drives me nuts.
On another note, I hosted a jewelry party at my house recently - something I was pretty sure I'd never do, but I thought, what the hey, let's go nuts. A piece that I ordered from the collection came in broken so I wanted to order a different piece in it's place. Everything is under warranty, so that should be simple enough, right?
I'm sure it would be except when I went to hunt down the catalog I couldn't find it at first, but then I noticed some pureed looking catfood sitting atop the desk in our office. Atop what appeared to be a few pages of what was once a magazine of some sort ... except that a good 30 pages had been eaten away in a ring like pattern. Eaten away like only a strong acid can...
It appears The Professor seems to be having a little trouble with some hairballs. Ones that may or may not have come up on the jewelry magazine.
