I Have a Cold

Stop the presses! I have a cold. More accurately, I have been having a cold for the past three days. Yesterday was the Lost Day. It went like this: wake up at 8:30AM, go back to sleep until 11AM. Get up, drink tea, walk the dog, eat toast, go back to sleep until 5PM, eat a microwaved potato and some defrosted chicken soup (homemade, of course), watch a little TV, walk the dog again, go to sleep at 11PM. Consume an entire box of tissues. Drink varieties of water - hot, cold, room temperature, filtered, straight from the tap, with and without: lemon, teabag, honey. Are you still reading? Why? Why am I writing about it? Because of some primitive misconception that blogcasting a blow-by-blow description will expel its residual toxins from my body and heal me faster. Please ignore this post, in case it's contagious, and let nature take its course.

Oooh, poor you. I started to say "stay warm", but does that apply in Israel? Isn't it always warm there? Gute Besserung!

Get well soon!
When I have a cold my Mama always wraps my head in a warm woolly scarf. She says if we keep my forehead warm, it will make all the nasty goo away faster.
Yeah, and I'm 24.

yes, get well soon. No fun is it. The whole of Portugal has fallen prey to a nasty flu bug as well, it isn't pretty.

Well, if you call your body's attention to the problem, maybe it will fight back. It's worth a shot. Colds are little nucleotides with proteins that are smart and evasive. Watch out! Anyway, you can at least try to stop in its tracks. WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN. Hope you feel better.
