Wha?? I *never* get colds and here I sit with a sore throat, sneezing my head off and feeling all pooty. Where the hell did that come from? Am I having an alternate life where I’m out and about, doing things that would cause me to come down with this mess? And if so, what kinds of other fun things am I doing when I am feeling well? I need to know. It’s entirely possible that I spend my astral life kissing cute boys and eating chocolate peanut butter ice cream. You never know.
And now, a list of things that make me feel better when I’m down with a cold:
1. taking a nap (check)
2. eating ice cream (check)
3. putting on my pajamas at 6pm (check)
4. cuddling with my cat Sophie (check)
5. drinking coffee (check)
Oh fine. Those are all things that make me happy even when I am not down with a cold. And what of it? Here are some other things that make me happy:
a) sitting by the ocean
b) walking around a bookstore, looking at all the books and magazines.
c) riding my bike up to the pier and standing by the bay
d) the jeans I bought for the Cookie concert – they are so comfy and are NOT mom jeans
e) drinking wine
There you go. I’m totally all over the place tonight, aren’t I? Can I play the pity card??
Poor Baby – Summer colds bite the weenie! Lucky for me I got mine out of the way already. Do all the comfort things to take care of yourself. The best place to get a cold is at the beach – the best place for anything is at the beach. I wanna go to the beach.
