I came down with a cold this week. In the middle of July. Very rude.
For some reason, I don't mind getting colds in the winter all that much - it's cool enough that you can drink hot tea (or hot Tang. Yes, hot Tang - try it sometime. It's awesome) to your heart's content to soothe the throat and ease achey bones. Not so much in the summer. I drank one cup of hot Tang today and it heated me up so much that I started sweating profusely halfway through. No fun.
Today was the second day of the cold - I worked from home. Hopefully day three, after a good night's sleep, will prove to be better.
