Whine: I have the cold from hell

Was it the month of traveling? The relative in Florida with pneumonia? That last long flight with recirculated air? Or just some germs I picked up at the park? Whatever the cause, I’ve got a helluva cold working its way from my throat to my nose to my chest and–yick–back up to my (now bright red) nose.
I was going to meet some friends tomorrow night, but if I’m like this in the morning, I ain’t going anywhere (sigh.)
