I was feeling pretty smug that I hadn't had a cold or the flu for at least three years, and then Sunday afternoon came and I couldn't stop coughing. Monday brought more coughing, so I located what little cough syrup I could find and knew I would have to make a run to the drug store. Tuesday afternoon my nose started running and by Wednesday afternoon I had to make another trek to the store. It's now Friday evening and I'm not feeling much better. My voice is raspy. I had to call a friend and tell her I cannot come to the party she is hosting tomorrow. I know this won't do me in, but it sure stinks!
