some kind of plague…

ok maybe not the plague. This is more a head cold/stuffed sinuses/blinding headpain which keeps me from wanting to drive anywhere, or operate machinery…

There is nothing more fun and rewarding then getting a head cold. It’s just one of those things that I always think about with giddy anticipation every time I go searching for this year’s winter coat in january. You know, as I flip through the coats on the rack I just start to day dream about the intense heat, the throbbing pain of sinuses coupled by the frustration of the hot and humid air around you. Then there is that desire just to put my head into a gigantic pair of vice grips and apply a counter-pressure to make it all go away…

OK, I don’t really go shopping for coats every year.

I also don’t look forward to what I’m going through right now with one hell of a head cold. This is the type of thing I’d never wish on someone else, so I can’t figure out why the hell I got nabbed by it. I’m pretty sure my kharma was running pretty well lately. I do favors for people and don’t ask for anything in return… I just don’t get it. Why have I been stricken with painful sinus, sore throat, and the inability to fall back asleep at 4 AM in the morning (probably because the cold is kicking my ass so much that I went to bed at 9 PM)?

I am convinced of one thing right now though: these cold strains are getting more and more powerful. I think that man has made a mistake in not focusing more attention on the “cure for the common cold.” Why? Because I think the “common cold” is getting stronger and stronger with each mutation and it is leading to something very dangerous. Granted I am getting older and older every year and it could just be that my immune system is less resistant to the effects of the common cold and that’s why it seems worse (or I’m just getting to be a bigger and bigger whimp).
