The Common Cold

I've not posted anything new for a couple of days because I've had the cold.

When I get the cold, my body really goes all out to make me feel, and look, as bad as possible. Not only does my nose get so blocked that I sound like Snuffleupagus from Sesame Street, but my eyes stream, my head hurts, and I can barely talk for sneezing. I have to blow my nose so often that within a couple of hours it's tomato-red and by the end of the second day it's so dry and scabby from all the nose-blowing that I have to slather vaseline all over it just to prevent it actually falling off my face onto the carpet.

Thankfully, there is a plus side. While other people can continue working, with just a bit of a sniffle and the occasional sneeze (although they may feel like going home sick), I begin to look like I may have a terrible disease, and my boss sends me home without me having to ask. She does cover her face with a handkerchief while she talks to me, but that's only to be expected...
