C is for cold

Cold n.

Relative lack of warmth.
The sensation resulting from lack of warmth; chill.
A condition of low air temperature; cold weather: went out into the cold and got a chill.
A viral infection characterized by inflammation of the mucous membranes lining the upper respiratory passages and usually accompanied by malaise, fever, chills, coughing, and sneezing. Also called common cold, coryza.

See that italicized section up there? Yeah, that is what I am talking about today.

So I went back to work today. I think it was quite obvious just looking at me that I had spent the last few days being sick and not just home enjoying the weather. I am doing my best impersonation of either a rabid reindeer or a drunk...just look at my nose! It is all red from all the sneezing and blowing.

I swear, with as much as I've blown my nose in the past week I should have lost like twenty pounds. Where does a body come up with snot?? Food? No thanks. I can't taste anything anyway so it all is pretty much gross. I did choke down some sugar-free jell-o this evening. I suppose the good thing is that I haven't had a cigarette in like three days now. I suppose I'll just keep on going and see if I can just quit. Bonus that John isn't here to tempt me into starting again!

So uh yeah, I'm still sorta sick but not as sick as I was but certainly worse than I am going to be. And now I am going to bed.
