Summer colds

Summer colds seem entirely unfair. In the winter you drink hot beverages, lemon chamomile tea for me, or cider or cocoa or other herbal teas, or you switch them around and get a different one each time. In the winter you curl up under the afghan. In the winter you drink hot soup.

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.
