Thumbs up is totally lame, I know. But I can't come up with anything clever like the pineapples over at Critical Fluff. I mean, I do have a cold and all.
Oh, but this isn't a normal cold. I don't know why I'd never tried it before, but after work on Friday, when I'd started feeling that familiar foggy-head feeling that indicates my getting sick, I went to get some Zicam. It's supposed to shorten the duration of your cold and decrease the severity of the symptoms. I figured it was like anything else I'd ever tried; a crock of shit, basically.
Turns out I was wrong. At least that seems to be the case so far. I haven't felt any worse since Friday. The cold hasn't traveled into my throat or lungs, as it usually would have done by now. I've been able to work out and sleep normally, which is a pretty big deal for me. I'm kind of sneezy today, but I'm sneezy every day at work.
I have no idea how this stuff works, nor do I really care, to be honest. If this is the worst I get with this cold, I will use Zicam forever. Seriously. This stuff is the bomb, yo.
Update: Now I remember why I had never used Zicam. It can cause permanent loss of smell and taste. My senses seem to be fine at the moment, but I think I'll stop using it now.
