I Hate Having A Cold Because...

1) One can only watch so much VH1 before the programming begins to repeat itself.

2) One moment, I have a complete aversion to food. The next, that aversion is replaced with a voracious appetite for anything with zero nutritional value.

3) Going into work after a two and a half day absence, I was lucky enough to hear "God, you really do look horrible" more than ten times.

4) My tastebuds are useless.

5) Even while eating, I have to breathe through my mouth, which offers an unseemly view of the food I'm chewing, as well as lovely sound effects.

6) Unless properly tended to, the constant blowing/wiping of my nose will give my nostrils the red and cracked appearance of a seasoned cocaine user.

7) Every fit of joyous laughter is immediately followed by a fit of horrific coughing.

8) I am terrified to go to the gym...Seeing as breathing isn't one of my stronger suits these days.

9) This cold, and the exhaustion accompanying it, has to be gone by tomorrow night. This weekend is packed with activity, and I will have to be in full social butterfly mode.

10) It's been well over 80 degrees since Monday - the first real taste of summer - and I have been unable to enjoy it.

What makes people think "wow, you look terrible" is a reasonable statement to say aloud?

I'll try not to kill this, but I heard an old Chinese saying that went "man with good health wants a thousand things. Man with bad health only wants one thing."

I had one last weekend (ALWAYS on days off from work!), and I still have the lung rumbles. Sucks.

Well Chimi, all what I can say is that I am so happy that you feel better, and get ready for the weekend because we are going to have fun.
Love,
Patty
