you know when it starts.
you feel that slight tickle in your throat when you yawn.
and then you begin to feel it when you swallow. the knives. feels like knives in your throat.
you’ve past the point of no return. you’re getting a cold and there’s nothing you can do about it.
personally, i’m a big believer in medicating. a good regimen of dayquil for day and nyquil for night. gel caps. yes, it does a body good. i can function during the day. i can sleep at night. glorious. unfortunately for me, for the majority of the years 2000-2006 i have either been nursing or pregnant, so alas, medication was ill-advised and therefore, not an option for me.
the husband, on the other hand, is the opposite. he only takes medication in the most dire of circumstances. by choice. insane. he’s like those people who insist on NOT having a epidural. like you get extra points for not taking any medication. my dear? that’s why they have medication. so you can function. and sleep. and you don’t have to make those horrible horking noises all night.
as a slight germophobe by nature – i’m big on washing my hands, not sharing drinks…that sort of thing, how do i avoid getting a cold. a sars mask? one of those new asian solar visors?
seriously…i could just die laughing from these things. the neighborhood around my office is primarily asian. and i would say about 80% of the people i see walking around are wearing these visors.
from afar they look very medieval times.
from up close they look very storm trooper-esque.
here’s to hoping the solar visor craze doesn’t catch on.
and that none of you out there catch my stinkin’ cold.
