Today I am grateful that this cough/chest congestion/sinus thing that I've managed to come down with in the past three days has not been accompanied by a sore throat. It's a miracle.
I don't think I've EVER had a cold where the germs didn't start out and camp out for the duration in my throat. Last spring I had a sore throat for THREE weeks.
Perhaps my throat has finally wised up and put up a 'No Vacancy' sign, so the germs went down the road and settled in my chest instead. Wait....why am I grateful again?
