Somewhere along the way, I acquired a Solstice cold. Judging entirely from the phlegmatic emanations (coughing, sneezing, and wheezing), I drafted the following schematic, which I will carry to my doctor later this week (only if absolutely necessary). It is a preliminary attempt to characterize the great range of unpleasant sounds and sensations associated with the bug.

If I know my doctor, she will take one look at this and say, "Yes, you do indeed have a cold." At which time I will resume heavy dosages of Vitamin C and Tylenol Cold (i.e., crunching down those buggers like a warm box of Good & Plenty) and hope they sustain me until I am well again.

IMO, you'd feel a lot better if you pulled that arrow out of your mouth.
