It is 3:56 Am. I have been up for about an hour. I am a bag of snot. Fluids are literally pouring from my body. I have a question for either the creationists or the evoluntionist....if gods made man or goddesses for that matter..one does have a sense of humor...putting a running nose over the mouth...do we really think evoluntion would have done that? Puffs beat the hell out of the moon walk ...imho. You got to love the spouse who assures me that he wants me to stay in bed where I would be most comfortable. But one of us needs sleep. What is it about the common cold? Is it knowing we are totally helpless till it runs its course? Is it the pouring nose and eyes? The exhausted feeling from no sleep...coughing...blowing and all? Are you one of these people who uses decongestants? Do you realize that this snot drying in and on your sinus cavities is not good for you? So due to that I believe in free flowing mucus. How is that working for me? Not so well right now...but I digress. I am now at the point that the dehyradration is starting. (day 3) So what do you do to treat the common cold?
