Surely everyone is ill right now; it is just that time of year. I am one of those people. Having experienced a crazy travel schedule the last few weeks, enduring violent temperature and climate change, adding also the fact that every single person at work and all of their kids are sick, I too, am under the weather now. Colds are annoying because they seem to change every day and give you new symptoms just when you have figured out how to treat/deal with the old ones.
Starts with: Turns into...
Sore throat Plugged nose
Runny nose Stuffy head
Itchy eyes Eyes glued together
Minor headache Total loss of hearing (but only on one side)
Whoever personified the eye gluck (mom's word) with "The Sandman" was on drugs. He is clearly named "The crazy Nymph with the Gorilla Glue that violates your eyes as you sleep." Although, "The Sandman" is less scary for children.
