summer colds, and links
I don’t know if there is anything more pathetic than a kid with a summer cold. While the sun shines and the grass gleams, my two kids are hacking and coughing and drifting listlessly around the house with a nasty virus. Both have had fairly high fevers which makes taking them out in the hot sun seem like a bad idea, so cabin fever is mounting (for them and us).
But that’s a summer cold for you.
