Summer colds stink. Well I think they stink....can you really smell when you have a cold? I have a cold. I try to be a courteous when I'm sick. I always feel the responsibility to tell whoever I'm dealing with that I have a cold. For example I told the lady that the Post office today that I had a cold. She was very grateful. Even at church when it's time for handshaking I always explain why I'm not shaking hands. People usually thank me for that. I feel the need to tell my co-workers to stay away when I have sick cooties. And that makes them happy. I also try not to contaminate things like door knobs, remote controls, and telephones when I am sick. I go to great lengths to use other body parts instead of my hands when sick. For example, for the past week I have been using my butt to open doors. ( I must say the ones that have doorknobs do take a bit longer, but it can be done.) I guess what I'm trying to say is some of you germ carriers out there are not so courteous and that's why I have a cold in the summer and that upsets me. Please, next time you have a cold, just tell me. Don't try to shake my hand. I'll take an elbow. Thanks.
