In the summer none of that seems right. Even if you're cold enough for the afghan, who wants to wrap in an afghan in July? Even if the tea feels good on your throat, July is lemonade time. The body gets confused.
Not that I have a cold, mind you. markgritter has a cold. I merely have almost no energy, swollen lymph nodes, and a persistent need to clear my throat. This last is almost certainly to make sure that my empty office (kitchen, etc.) is paying full attention to the things I'm not saying and has nothing to do with being sickish at all. I would not dream of having a cold. Nuh-uh.
