Or, common cold. I wouldnt wish it on my worst enemy. As an asthmatic, cold is no stranger to me and the slightest amount of dust can make my twin cannons fire, if you know what I mean.
After two days of fighting the damn thing, I hereby declare the common cold as my sworn enemy.
We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender
That sums up my attitude to the common cold.
I think the gene causing susceptibility to the common cold must be found and erased from the human genome. And a worldwide covert op must be mounted to track down the common cold virus and eliminate it.
In fact, I think I can persuade President Bush to fund this operation. Just tell him that the common cold virus has been re-engineered to cause brain damage and Al Qaeda is mailing envelopes full of the virus to all high schools in the country.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta go blow my nose 😀
