You know how some people can get a cold and be over it completely within 2-3 days?
Sometimes I am one of those people – and when that happens, it’s cause for alarm. For me, a short cold is just waiting to do its “big finale” later. Waiting for the other shoe – or drop of mucus to drop.
A couple of weeks ago, I caught a cold on the first day of my four-day vacation, and a few days later, it seemed to be gone. But it really wasn’t…it was collecting some friends, and waiting to jump me later. I’m still feeling run down – being busier at work hasn’t helped any. I really need some rest (and more cough syrup)!
I just can’t seem to shake this cough. I’m giving it a couple of more days to vamoose, otherwise we’ll have to talk about it seeing other people. Begone!
I’d love to get my hands on candy made of real horehound extract. I had some real horehound candies years ago that really helped my cough. But I don’t feel like leaving the house…ugh!
It really has been a while since I’ve had a bad cold…the last one was in January, 2018. I was so overcome by own…snot – that I did a Google search for oversized Kleenex! 😝 They used to be called “mansize,” but but have been rebranded as “extra large” because of complaints about sexism. I was not at all offended by the name! Sometimes political correctness goes too far IMHO…
The bright side was my trivia team got a tournament question right around that time about (drum roll) -Kleenex!
