I do feel like I've been hung out to dry today. After weeks of watching everyone around me dropping like flies with an evil cold, it seems I at last have caught it. I have two ginormous breakouts on my face (for some reason when I get sick, it gives me at least one big zit. Where's the justice, I ask you?) My left ear and left nostril are so congested I can neither breathe nor hear (though mercifully it hasn't caught up to the right side of my head yet!). And I've got a tickle-in-the-throat-hey-ouch-that-hurts cough. So far not streaming from eyes and nose or rattling in the chest but no doubt that will be the next stage of developments.
I imagine the congested feeling in the head that this guy feels is not dissimilar from a bad cold. Red and gold for feverishness, maybe he looks so 'peaceful' because he's zonked out on cold remedies. And his hands are behind his back to hide the mangled tissue he keeps having to use. Yep, I think that's it. ;)
Why am I always the last person to get the bugs? At least I usually get the mildest form of it to anyone around me. So that is something. Fingers crossed it gets no worse, and today will see me on the mend.
