I’ve entered into what I refer to as the “Snot Stage” of my current cold. Most refer to it as the “Sniffles”, which is less direct.
This is the stage that I always look forward to. Compared to the Sore Throat and Repetative Coughing stages, the Snot Stage is a virtual oasis in the desert that is the common cold. There’s less pain, I can hold a conversation, my appetite is back up, and everything tastes saltier. Everytime I get sick now I always think, “I can’t wait for the Snot Stage!”
I just sneezed on my keyboard…that’s disturbing.
