12:34 February 27
Some time yesterday afternoon, the head cold my immune system had been holding at bay all week as a mildly scratchy throat and the occasional sniffle broke through into full-on congestion, sneezing and coughing. This health setback makes me mindful of two things. One, I think I've only had one other cold in the last calendar year. I'm grateful for a fully-restored, strong immune system. Two, I'm thankful for all the remedies at my disposal to recover: apple cider vinegar, honey, hot tea, soup with extra shakes of Tabasco, hot toddies, a restful weekend ahead and even, Sudafed.
