If we were having coffee, I’d suggest a switch to something cold. It’s hot here today. Of course, I’m inside in the air conditioning. Whoever invented that was a genius.
I faithfully read (because they lovingly deliver it to my inbox each morning) Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day. The other day, a word struck my brain in a weird way. What follows is the conversation I heard in my head.
If we were having coffee, you could stop saying “bless you” after the fifth of a bazillion sneezes. The hacking cough is gone. I’m left with the final remnants of sneezing in my sleep even — woke myself up! But I feel a zillion times better. Don’t remember having a summer cold before (or if I did, it was so long ago, I blocked it out). I hope I never get one again. Bad ill co-worker for breathing on me! But yay for really REALLY feeling better. Guess all that tea helps, eh?
If we were having coffee, I would assure you I’m no longer contagious. The guy who almost ran me over, who’s now a coworker, gave me the world’s worst cold as a new employee gift. One more strike, he’s out, yes? Just a cold — started last Sunday, got worse on Monday, eased a bit on Tuesday, then began its final retreat. No fever. I fed it lots of water ice and ice cream. I think I read somewhere you’re supposed to, right?
