Damn. I made it through the whole winter without so much as a sniffle. Then yesterday, just three days before summer officially begins, I got sick. Now I’m coughing and sneezing, my nose is running, my eyes are watering, my stomach hurts, and I feel downright awful.My wife is making me drink three large glasses of Airborne, a immune system booster, Alka-Seltzer-like effervescent tablet, a day. She swears that it will reduce both the intensity and the duration of my cold.
She’s also demanding that I consume eight glasses of water a day, which she says will help flush the sickness out of me.
So now, in addition to having a summer cold, between the Airborne and the water, I’ve been pissing like a racehorse for the past 24 hours.
