Bleh

Muggins is ill.
Muggins has tonsilitis
Of course, in true BUS style this is a self-made diagnosis but I recognise the symptoms (I ought, I was ill for a year with the buggers when I was seven)and I had a look at my throat and it did not look funky.
When your tonsils are huge and flecked with white, this is not a good sign, generally speaking.

I am attempting to self-cure by consuming lots of garlic and gargling with salt water (for thier disinfectant properties and killing-infection-in-throat abilities) in between contemplating showing up at the GP's doorstep and begging for an emergency appointment so they can prescribe me antibiotics because I'm meant to be working tomorrow.

Muggins kindly requests someone to come shoot them now.

Gargling with soluble aspirin helped a bit when I had tonsillitis. (Needed anti-biotics to get rid of it, though.)

Can you not phone your GP?

Haven’t heard of gargling with salt water killing bacteria before!

the salt content and high concentration of salt [in the water as opposed to the bugs] causes high absorbtion and then cellular rupturing in the pesky little blighters. or something.

Heh - smoke - give 'em nicotine poisoning too ;)

The problem with my GP is that their phone is perpetually busy, so it's easier to just show up on their doorstep (which I did) and looked ill enough for someone to see me almost right away which was very kind.

I've got given much penicillin (which half of my family are fatally allergic to, but I seem ok for some reason.

I'm off work for a week which shall give me much time to feel sorry for myself. ;)
