August 1st – I’d Like a Bahama Mama Please.

Today’s Kona Cotton Color of the day is Bahama Blue.

So recently I happened to get a case of bronchitis. Yeah. It’s annoying. Bronchitis, for those that don’t know, is an inflammation of the lining of bronchial tubes. So the coughing created all kinds of problems. People stared at me coughing (don’t worry, I wore a mask), as if I had the plague, forgetting that all manner of colds and respiratory illnesses were having fun with the world long before COVID. Also, don’t worry, my doctor on precaution tested me again for that – just in case – didn’t have that and I’ve been vaccinated.

Chest x-ray ruled out pneumonia, thank goodness. But the coughing was beginning to impact my sleeping and getting to work on time the next day. So she prescribed me a cough medicine that would also help me sleep at night so my body could rest enough to recuperate.

The only problem with this kind of medicine is that the component in it that makes you sleep is also the component in it that can…. well…. make you druggedly happy. And thats when I go looking for a Bahama Mama. Yeah. I need that like I need another hole in the head. Oh, I slept well. A little too well. Then you wake up with that awful feeling, with a fog in your brain that doesn’t seem to disappear until 2pm. And fuzz. Fuzz on the tongue. What is up with THAT??!

I don’t like drugs and medication. I mean, I took the morphine or dilauded or whatever it was they gave me after all my c-sections, but that was major surgery. On a regular basis, I don’t even like to take acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil) for a headache or fever. I am a self-described control freak, so taking strong medicine that makes me feel out of control, kinda freaks me out and not in a good way.

So now when I think about medication and Bahama Mama’s, I try to think of something more constructive…. quilt constructive actually. Like this quilt below. I’m pretty sure we’ve featured it once before with another color, but it does have Bahama Blue in it. I know you’re going to like it as much as I do.

Oh and just so you know…. a Bahama Mama is a sweet tropical drink made with coconut rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, a touch of grenadine and dark rum.
