Eradicate the Cold Virus

I hereby plead, nay, beg the powers that be(They be in scientific laboratories) to come up with some way to eradicate the cold virus. I think several millenia is plenty of a run for that particular organism. Time is up, the cold virus should just give up and commit suicide.

You guessed it, I have a cold...again. I suppose I should stop teaching...or listen to Cora and Lysol the kids as they come in the classroom. I felt it coming on yesterday afternoon, then last night I had difficulty sleeping. now I am cold and miserable, even though the temperature is up.

We went to town for cold meds and tacos. I wish we had a place tht sold soup.

I taught high school art today, or, rather, watched the kids do what they needed to do. It was a nice change of pace. Of course, there was a girl who insisted I looked just like her mom's boyfriend...I told her if that was the case, then her mother had very good taste. I don't think she understood that I believe myself to be very handsome...alas, so much humor is wasted on those kids.

I think I am going to go run some 212 degree bathwater and soak in it. Wish me luck.

Kids are natural germ carriers. I don't want to sound like I am bragging, but I never have colds anymore. That is probably because I am a hermit and never get exposed to any cold germs. So you either have to be a hermit or stay away from kids, the germ carriers.

You should get a netti pot. I heard they totally cure the cold. Or kill you by drowning. Either way the cold is gone.

Lysol, Lysol, Lysol the kids! I could create a cheer if you want. Teaching brings home all nasty nasties! maybe you should get a permanent job and then it would be the same kids with the same germs everyday, hint hint!!
love ya
