2 boxes of tissues later

Question of the day...

Why is there no cure for the common cold?
Why must I be forced to be in total agony with this?

The runny nose, sinus pressure, sinus drainage, coughing, sneezing, aching, barely sleeping cold.
And could tissues be any more pricey? I know better than to purchase the cheapy ones...I have to spring for the lotion ones so my nose doesnt try and run off my face like it does in the holiday Kleenex commercials.
I dont want to walk around work all day with a red nose and have my co-workers whispering behind my back that ol' schwartz fell off the wagon and is hitting the Jack a little hard during working hours again. No. No, I dont want that.

Its kinda like how a tiny fucking paper cut hurts so bad you want to cut your finger off...thats how a cold is.
Paper cut is to massive, gaping flesh wound what the common cold is to the Bubonic Plague. Scientific Fact.

They can cure such amazingly dreadful diseases. But not the common cold.

Bunch of bastards Ill tell ya.

Get some Zicam. It's not a cure, but it comes close. Shit's expensive, but it's worth it.

So true! It's so annoying that you can't get any medicine for a cold. Yellow Fever yes, cold no.
