To Stop Z's Coffin'?

...as the undertaker might say to the chemist.

I woke up coughing at 6 o'clock this morning. I reached out for the glass of water placed prudently on the bedside table. I aimed it towards my mouth. Pity I was still lying on my side.

Anyway, when I actually woke properly to get up, I heard the cuckoo. I suppose everyone else has heard it for the past three weeks, but I haven't.

It is, of course, obligatory to use the definite article in reference to the cuckoo. I don't know why.

Ugh, I hate when I wake up coughing. . .It's really not enjoyable at all.

NyQuil is my drug of choice.
