Positive Spin on Misery:
The common cold has nipped our family for the first time this season. Tiern, our contagion sentinal, felt his symptoms developing Christmas evening. Then, as viral buggers usually do, they jump to others (Little Miss and Dood Locka).
Little Miss: “I really like colds.”
Tiern: “No you don’t.”
Little Miss: “Yes I do!”
Tiern: “Nobody likes colds, they make you feel bad. Look at my red nose Miss (wiping his highly inflammed, crusty nostrils with his snot rag). It hurts!”
Little Miss: “Well, colds make me feel good.”
Dadoo: “Why do you like colds Miss?
Little Miss: “Cuz we get cough drops when we get colds.”
