For this Coughmas, I would very much like to stop coughing. It may be against the very spirit of Coughmas but it’s what I really want. I’ve been hacking away for the past 8 days like as if I’ve spent 49 years smoking du Mauriers. I’d like to stop now, please. My head is sore from the violent spurts of cough. This simply won’t do. I’m going to go make a lovely fruit tea.
