Today was the first morning I woke up feeling semi-human since Saturday. Last Thursday, I had a slight tickle in my throat, by late Friday afternoon, I had it. A bad ass cold. Possibly a little flu mixed in. Some sore throaty, chest coldy, head coldy, sneezy, coughy, achy bastard of a thing. And it was deceptive. Sometimes I'd feel okay for about two hours and then be hit by exhaustion.
It was a beauty, a bad ass, the mother of them all. Ain't no use in fighting it. All you can do is crawl in to bed and try to sweat it out.
Whenever I have one of these mini-plagues, I think of this song by 10cc.
