You Make Me Sick

Well this is the first Saturday in a long long time where there are no animal postings. But I suppose you're "lucky" you're getting a post at all.

I woke up at 04:00 yesterday with a cough. Seasonal asthma attack.....is what I chalked it up to.

I coughed here and there through the morning. In the afternoon a few sneezes.

I'd say maybe it was allergies, but I was inside....hermetically sealed in a building. No pollen was coming my way.

Around 16:00, I started getting congested.

Fuck.

I love when people say "summer colds are the worst". I mean - are they? I still thing malnutrition ranks up there. Or Syria. Or that somehow, inexplicably, Friends is still in heavy syndication.

But really - what is the difference about post-nasal drip and stuffiness in the warmth versus winter? it's mostly more annoying than unpleasant.

I do hope it's quick.

If Mary Tyler Moore taught me anything at MJM, it's that colds are three days coming, three days with you, and three days going.

Maybe the upshot is: there was no three days coming. It was barely three hours.

I came home from work and took Wal-Dryl.....because who has the deep enough pockets for the brand name stuff?  It didn't really dry me out, but it made me tired.

Hopefully I'll bounce back......quickly.
