Ugh. It’s that time of year again. No matter how many times I wash my hands, how much vitamin C I take or how much sleep I get, I always seem to end up with a cold. You know the type. Nothing really serious — just a stuffy nose, scratchy throat and lingering cough. It’s not the flu and doesn’t really knock me out — it just makes life a little more uncomfortable.

Since it’s most likely caused by a virus, there’s not a lot I can do other than stock up on Kleenex, drink liquids and try to rest up. Viruses can be nasty little buggers and they annoy me to no end. I’m guessing most of us are irritated by them.
