Viral Danger Room

My reaction to a potential infection is like the TSA to a bomb-threat.  I take no risks and simply sleep until it’s gone.  I had the type of sniffle caused by a descended soft palette so I went through my normal routine of a tall glass of water and throwing the cat outside to make sure it wasn’t allergies.  20 minutes passed and it was still there so I went to bed.  I woke up at 7 AM, still there back to bed.  Same at 9, 11:30, and 2.  Around 3:30 PM the tickle was gone and I declared myself well.  This tactic does have its downfalls: I had called in sick but went to a Scout meeting that evening with my boss where I was loud.  Very loud.  “He’s not sick” loud.
