Yeah, fuck you, rhinovirus. I came down with a cold Friday night. (I'm still tracking down the vector, but, suspiciously, a student I had met with during office hours Friday showed up to class Monday sniffling and coughing, too.) It's now Wednesday and I'm over it. Done. A little residual hacking, but not even a sniffle. The secret? 35,000% of my daily recommended allowance of Vitamin-C four days running. Yeah, smell like a life-sized Flinstone vitamin and I'm sweating Tang, but I'm invincible. INVINCIBLE!
