Last night I dreamt that all the abdominal work we’ve been doing at the end of kung fu class had given me a nice set of six-pack abs. Imagine my disappointment when I woke up.
A determined and valiant division of the rhinovirus army has taken a strong position in my sinuses. I fought back with an initial barrage of vitamin C. Now I’m trying a product called Zicam. It’s zinc goo that you squirt up your nose. It’s supposed to cut down the time of a cold. I’ve had pretty good luck with heavy doses of vitamin C, but that only works if you begin as soon as you feel the first twitch in your nose. Wait and it’s too late.
I also got some zinc lozenges, but couldn’t stomach them. Almost literally. Nasty tasting and they did make me feel a tad queesy.
