Yes, it's my annual screw-up-your-supposed-vacation-time-by-getting-sick routine, and of course it always starts with other people. If the rest of you out there would just stay healthy, I'm sure I could manage to do my part, m'kay?
I also often find that it starts with children. Doesn't it sometimes seem like children exist to weed out the sickly adults? They blithely run about with their runny noses and intermittent high fevers that would put a grown person down for the count, and they bounce back...while adults are left in their wake battling the same bug for days.
This one started with my S.O. By the time we got home from my folks' home on Christmas evening he was feeling poorly, and starting Monday he became what all grown men become when sick: a big sick baby.
But by last night I understood because I too started succumbing to the creeping crud, the heavy head, the dry cough, the scratchy throat. All that good stuff.
And no, I haven't tried Airborne or Emergen-cee or any of that good stuff.
I do think I'll go have a cup of green tea now, though.
Happy New Year! Woohoo :(
