How to Sleep Through a Chest Cold

My husband has a chest cold. This is a conversation we had in the middle of the night:

Me (nudging him): “Hey…hey…I’m going to need you to stop coughing.”

Garrett: “Huh? What?”

Me: “You’re coughing…a lot. I’m going to need you to stop that.”

Garrett: “Oh…I uh….what do you mean? How do I stop coughing?”

Me: “I think the first step is for you to sleep on the couch. Let’s start there.”

Garrett: “Okay. You know what’s even worse? I have “Summer Lovin'” from Grease stuck in my head. It’s awful.”

Me: “Ugh…that sucks. I’m sorry. The couch has magical powers, though. It cures cough. I think it’s clear what needs to happen. Love you!”

Garrett: “Where are the extra blankets?”
