Colds are the worst! The worst! I would much rather have a stomach flu which comes on intense for a few days and then lets you get back to living your life. But not colds. Oh no. Colds like to linger and make a nuisance of themselves for what feels like an eternity. The sniffling, the congestion, the coughing. The coughing is the worst! I always seem to be in the middle of something with someone of importance and I can fee the tickle in the back of my throat start. A couple muffled coughs later, I try as I might to hold it in until I’m red-faced and feeling like I’m going to pop vein in my head. Then all hell breaks lose and I start coughing like an angry dog barking at a passerby (not to mention gasping for air), usually to the awkward horror of the other person.
