Duck Duck's Short Guide to the Common Cold


1. Realize as soon as possible that it's not "just allergies".




2. Feel sorry for yourself a little.




3. Get lots of rest, spoil yourself, drink plenty of fluids.




4. Whine to friends--the good ones will listen.




5. When you feel a little better, go out and get some fresh air, do a jig.

Thank you for reading Duck Duck's guide to the common cold.
