You showed up unwelcome last week Thursday. That means that it has been 11 days since you first made your appearance and 11 days of feeling pretty much like death warmed over. I would like to note that I have made concessions to you--I have consumed Oil of Oregano, I have taken multiple Zinc tablets, I have emptied a bottle of Vitamin C, I have drank (drunk?) at least 1 gallon of water a day, I made 2 pots of chicken soup, I slept for 5 hours one afternoon, I have not run in 11 days....and yet, you remain.
Today is the last day of this cold. No matter what. I now retire to the couch to shake it once and for all. Back tomorrow, loyal readers.
