Unfortunately the new year is starting like the old one ended, with coughing and sniffling in the Bothwell Household. We’re all fighting off colds, either new ones or the remnants of the old one that just won’t die. Yippee.
The only consolation is that they are colds, so a flue shot wouldn’t have helped. Indeed, people who got the shot haven’t avoided them. So I don’t feel too bad having missed mine this year. But they’re still sniffling annoying.
