The 12 Days of (a Migraine) Christmas

My hubs loves to make crazy words up to common songs. That’s not usually my thing, but as I sit here dealing with yet another Migraine my meds aren’t controlling well, for some reason it sounded like as much fun as a person with a Migraine can have. Right now I could use something to chuckle silently at, even if it’s tongue-in-cheek humor. So, here goes…
