"Bottle of Lucozade, Madam? Certainly, Coming Right Up!"

I don't know if they make Lucozade in countries other than England, so I should start off by saying that it is a fizzy energy drink, which has been around since I was a young child and, at that time, Noah was busy next door to us building his ark.


 "Where is this going?" I hear you ask.  Well, as there has been so much love flying around in Blogland over the past few days, I guess there are other kinds of love than leaving little notes for each other under the pillow and dancing the flamenco on the kitchen table with a red rose clenched between your teeth.  I'm sorry, I'm getting carried away now - it's the fever you know (and, YES, I am still confined to bed with the dreaded lurgy!).

As in yesterday (yes, that's right, Valentine's Day, just in case you had forgotten), when my husband was out all day saving the world, as he likes to do on a daily basis.  I had no idea what time to expect him home, so I phoned up (he was obviously at a meeting) and left a message on his Blackberry, asking him if, perhaps he wouldn't mind picking me up a bottle of Lucozade on the way home. (You can see who is the humble one in this partnership, can't you?!).

Anyway, about half an hour later, I heard him coming in downstairs.  Goodo, I thought, glass of Lucozade on the way.  But - Nothing.  After he had read his post, he did remember that I was upstairs, so came up to make enquiries about my health, whilst at the same time checking his e-mails on his Blackberry.  Anyway, I didn't say anything (not being one to make waves, you understand). 

After he had gone downstairs, a period of about ten minutes had elapsed, when I heard his car roar off down the drive.  He had obviously by now checked his text messages and heard my plaintive cry asking for the Lucozade.  My glass of chilled drink was delivered to me a short while later.

Now that has to be love, doesn't it?!!  I'm just starting to nod off again now, but I will write more about my experiences of my husband's TLC at a later date.

awww Thisisme, that is most definitely love! What a sweetheart :) Hope you feel better soon. I am up and managing to function but my eyes and chest hurt!

Odie Langley said...

That was sooooo sweet. Sorry you and other bloggers are sick like Lyndy. I do hope you all are well soon.

Gawgus things... said...

Oh, how I larfed!! Glad you've still got a sense of humour during your illness :) Get Well Soon!

SkippyMom said...

I have done this to Pooldad too - called him as he is pulling in the drive way to request something at the store [on his way home] and he will happily back right back out and get it. Sweet men.

Please feel better soon. Must be so hard to be sick for so long. :( Hopefully you are getting some of our dry/warm weather and it isn't dreary.

Hugs to you sweetie.

Shady Del Knight said...

Yes, that was a very loving gesture on the part of your spouse. W/o complaint he turned around and headed back out to get you what you requested. I never heard of that beverage before. I hope it helped to perk you up and that you will feel better very soon, Thisisme. For what it's worth you are quite funny when you're ill! (LOL)

Oh how I chortled at this! Well done on managing to write such a funny post even when feeling dreadful.
I'm sure your husband and mine are related although mine would be much more likely to come into the bedroom wearing a mask so he didn't catch any germs or launching the lucozade at me through a crack in the door.
Now, hurry up and get better. 'Lucozade aids recovery' after all. (Does it still taste the same? I haven't had any since I was about five years old)

LindyLouMac said...

So sorry to hear you are still feeling unwell, you still managed to make me laugh though with your tale. My goodness I do remember Lucozade it was considered a treat to be allowed some when one was ill as a child!

Bouncin' Barb said...

I would have expected nothing less from a man married to you!! Love is never having to say I'll be right back because I just got your message!!!

Jumble Mash said...

mskanorado said...

I love this so much! My golly! I was laughing at the first half and aww-ing at your hubby! Have a lovely Tuesday!

Thisisme. said...

lyndylou - Glad you agree that it IS love!! So sorry to hear that you are still suffering somewhat. I'm actually sat out in the chair today, which is a big improvement on yesterday. Let's hope that we'll both be back on top form by the weekend.

Odie - thank you for your good wishes.

Gawgus-things - I knew this post would give you a laugh. Hee hee!!

SkippyMom - Sweet men indeed. I AM trying hard to get well again!

Shady - thank you. I've noticed before that when I'm feeling poorly, my mind seems to go into overdrive!!

Facing50Blog.com - I told you before that I was sure they were related, didn't I?! Amazingly, Lucozade does still taste exactly the same! I have been disappointed with so many things from the past, but this is still the real thing. If I can make YOU smile, then that is praise indeed!!

LindyLouMac - I was in hospital on several occasions as a young child, and they recommended that I drunk Lucozade, so I did seem to get through bottles of it! It seems as if it's worked its magic again, because I'm actually out of bed today. YAY!

Bouncin'Barb - loved your Love is comment!!

Jumble Mash - Bonus points indeed!!

Thisisme. said...

mskanorado - I'm pleased the post gave you a smile today!

Belle said...

That was sweet of him to go out again for you. I do hope you are well soon. We don't have that drink in Canada, but we do have Orange Crush.

Thisisme. said...

Belle - hi there. Yes, I thought it was really sweet, especially as I hadn't even mentioned it when he got home.
