Yesterday I rode my bike to work. It’s a short, easy ride. It wasn’t raining in the morning. After work, it was drizzling. I went for a three mile run around the river. I rode my bike home in the drizzle. Then this morning I rode my bike to work again, still drizzling. Then at my 11:00 meeting this morning I started sneezing and couldn’t stop. And now I can’t breathe through my nose and my face is all puffy and my sinuses are clogged and my nose is leaking and I don’t have tissues so I have to blow my nose with paper towels. I’ve always said that you can’t catch a cold from being outside in the rain. You catch a cold from germs. But apparently I was wrong and you can catch a cold from being outside in the rain. Well. You learn something new every day.
And on top of it all this d-bag* doesn’t have a place for me to comment on his tumblr. So I will comment here. That’s a little something I like to call “being a nice person.” I thought everybody was supposed to be nice in the mid west. I guess we have different understandings of niceness.
*That’s actually my friend Matthew, he’s not a d-bag, he’s nice.**
**I’m really into asterisks lately.
