1. Drink sweet tea.
This is a necessity in the south anyhow, but especially in times like these.
2. Clear out your inbox...
...and reply to all those emails that are piling up. In other words, I'm leaving lots of comments and sending lots of emails. (A certian someone will be getting about 4-5 emails from me today.) ;)
3. Eat junk food.
Anything will suffice, but fruit gummies are best.
4. Read books.
And I don't mean school books. Honestly, who can concentrate with a cement block for a brain?!
5. Write a story about someone who's sick.
You can accurately describe things best when you're living through it.
6. Threaten to strangle the person/people you caught the cold from.
Even if they don't believe your threats, they might at least give you some quiet.
7. Wear a big, baggy sweatshirt.
You can hide in it and stay warmerish.
8. Blow your nose constantly.
Even if it's not always necessary, it'll scare annoying people away. Coughing works well for this too.
9. Be as grouchy as you like.
After all, you most likely caught this gunk from someone in your household. It's their fault their having to put up with your grouchiness.
10. Watch movies all day and tell mom you're 'counting it' for history.
I suggest Return to the Hiding Place, Beautiful Dreamer, or The Waltons.
Special thanks to mom for helping me come up with a few of these (my brain flew the coop) and for putting up with my grouchiness even though she's not the person I caught this from.
*coughs and leaves to take her own advice*
