Odd Craving That Comes Along w/Sickness

2 of my favorite things when I'm sick: Raspberry-filled Krispy Kreme Doughnuts & Milk
I don't normally have a sweet tooth (minus chocolate)! Strange as it may seem, but every time I catch a cold, fever, and/or flu I tend to crave this. Not sure when this began. I'm guesstimating perhaps more than 5 years but less than 10 years ago. Anyway, when I'm sick...I usually fend for myself. I'll run to the local Walgreens/Longs Drugs/Target. Get my box of Kleenex tissue w/Aloe & Lotion and if there is a convenient Krispy Kreme....I'll get my ever so yummy raspberry-filled donuts. Today was unfortunate. I caught the bug that was going around. It hit me quick-style. I got into work at 8am and started sneezing and feeling achy and dizzy an hour later. Crazy, right? Anyway, I tried to get through my work day but it did not happen. I ended up leaving work around 2ish. When I finally got home, I was surprised by a friend who dropped off some goodies - nope! Not donuts...even better. Chocolate-covered strawberries from Godiva!! Fantastic! Yea yeah, I devoured that in less than a minute. I stood next to the trash can in my kitchen and killed it. Juices from the strawberries left a mess on my shirt. Oh well. And in mid-bite with one in my mouth, a big ass piece of chocolate cracked OUTSIDE of my mouth and fell into the trash. I wanted soooooooo badly to dive into it (since I just emptied the trash) and get it. But that was just plain sad! Back to the donuts... So after I scarfed down the chocolate berries, I finally realized that I forgot to purchase my donuts. I texted my older sister to buy me some. It was worth a try. I waited and waited and waited. It was long after 6pm and she still wasn't home. I started to worry....did she get my donuts? Haha! You thought I was worried something bad happened, huh? Well that was my 2nd worry. Yeah, I'm horrible! Blame it on the sickness. I later find out that she's chillin' at my cousins house. Boo! I call her up and asked when she was coming home. She said don't worry, I got the donuts. Then I asked, "Did you get the raspberry ones????". She didn't know I wanted those! My fault! Ugh! Right then and there, I gave up. There's no way I'll get my raspberry donuts today. I'll just have to man up and deal with it. Stop whining. She finally gets home around a little before 10pm. She walks through the front door with 2 boxes of Krispy Kreme filled with only original glaze. She left it on the dining table waiting for me to rush to it. I didn't budge. 10 minutes pass and she says, "You're not gonna have any?". "Eh, maybe later", I said. Big sis says, "But there is a surprise in there for you". I reply,"Yeah, yeah whatever". I was curious to see what she was talking about. When she went to her room, I took a peek. LOL! To my surprise, there laid like literally - 3 Jelly filled donuts!! All I gotta say is that my fam is hilarious! I ended my day complete with joy! They improvised and used strawberry jam in place of my raspberry filling. I still ate it though. It wasn't the same tarty flavor but it was good enough for me. I spooned that sucker out and shoved it in my mouth! Yummy! Thanks MJ, Irene, and MA for the creativity! Anyway, back to getting some rest. Just thought this was a blogworthy post. Good Night world. I hate being sick [sigh]
