A rare cold


One of the distinct advantages of working alone and from home is that I get colds and flus much more rarely than before. At previous jobs that involved a daily commute and lots of direct interaction with people, I would average several bouts of viral infection per year. Now it is thankfully a much more rare¬†occurrence. That said, I have been coughing like mad for the past day or so, and lots of gross green is coming up. My throat hurts, I have a headache, and a general¬†malaise. And I can’t rightfully blame my friend Olaf who is staying with me, because he seems just dandy. Oh well, I guess I will have to forego the all night dance parties I had planned for this weekend…
