I hate the common cold.
It is too easy to catch, too easy to spread, and just damn hard to get rid of.
Its bad enough to cloud your thinking, but too weak as an excuse for getting the day off.
It shows in your eyes, clutters up your coordination, burns your throat and nose, messes up your tastebuds and makes em other body parts hurt all over.
It is the body's version of Murphy's Law.
And worse: Theres nothing you can do about it.
Pills, potions, chicken soup, hot tea, lizard tails... nothing, nothing has ever worked for me. The common cold is devious enough to make you feel all wobbly the whole day, while making sure that the runny nose gets you an indecent night's sleep.
It is the most sick of the human sicknesses.
With other diseases, like Cancer, at least you know that you just gotta zap up a few body parts to lead a normal life again. Appendicitis just needs you to cut up a little organ before it explodes, while sprains or broken bones just need you to cast up or amputate the damn leg.
The common cold on the other hand, makes you ponder as to what other disease you would rather have, or when you should start playing Russian Roulette.
Someday, I'll find a cure for this bug called the common cold.
Or just legalize the use of it as an excuse not to go to work.
Pardon the unusual rant.
Well, yeah, I guess you knew that already.
