Cough. Sniffle. PANIC!

These days a guy can't get a sniffle without everyone wondering if you have a corona-cold.

Everyone in the house suddenly came down with mild cold symptoms Monday. Well, mild so far.

My daughter went to the doctor and was given some meds. Of course, now she's sitting around the house happily yapping about having the coronavirus (which means she apparently doesn't feel very bad). No, the doctor didn't even suggest that's what she has, but you know how kids are.

I'm self-medicating with the supplements I normally use at the first sign of a cold (or when I suspect I've been exposed to one). If this works as well as it usually does I'll probably avoid getting very sick and any illness will be abbreviated.

I'm also going to be nice and not go around exposing people to whatever I may have. Although, yes, I know that by the time any symptoms appear you've already been infectious. I can't help that. But I can avoid frightening those already primed to panic at the sight of someone with the sniffles. I don't need to be confronted with torches and pitchforks.

I think limiting the exposure of others is always the responsible thing to do. I'm glad I have that freedom (even though it comes with economic sacrifice).


Writing to promote liberty is my job.
YOU get to decide if I get paid.
I hope I add something you find valuable enough to support.
