the story of an invisible girl
Oh dear, I think I might be getting a cold. How did this happen? I don't know anyone who's had one recently. I don't have time to be ill right now.

Maybe it's a phantom cold. Maybe it'll disappear by tomorrow, just my body's way of trying to get sympathy instead of finishing homework like it's supposed to be doing.

Don't feel good. Need ice cream.

Maybe you got it from the alpaca that we know followed you when you rode your bike home last night. (Was yesterday Alpacaday? I can never keep track anymore).

Did you get your ice cream? If not, maybe an alpaca (or one of your friends) will bring some by.

Ack, you're probably right! It was dark so I couldn't see the alpaca, but he was probably breathing on me.

I think I have secured an ice cream source, although no alpacas yet -- so healing should be soon to follow. (:

Waaah. Ice cream with a little bit of booze drizzled on?

Hope you feel lots better soon.

I think Vitamin C helps me to not-get-sick, or to get over it faster if I do. I like the 500 mg tablets, because you can take multiples of that -- I'll usually start with about 4 -- and every 'n' hours, when I start to realize again that I feel sick, usually. I'll take more. It's quite hard to overdose on C, and when you are eliminating it rather than using it, (if you're not blind( you can *tell*, so at that point (or when you start to feel much better) you can cut back on the dosage.

Those cold-eze or halls defense lozenges with zinc and vitamin C help me a lot, usually.

Tell me if you want me to stop by with some, or chicken soup, or ice cream (it isn't just for breakfast...).

Ice cream helps! Especially Ben and Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch...at least my colds seem especially adverse to that flavour. ;)

omgosh, that's my favorite flavor too!! I also like Chubby Hubby for tenacious illnesses.

A cool drink should help.

Did you climb barehanded on Wednesday?

Did you wash your hands after before eating?
