I felt it coming yesterday. That tightness in the back of your throat. By the evening, a few sneezes, and that tightness turned to sandpaper.

Currently I am 35,000 feet in the air, about to have a week-long holiday… and I have a cold.

Grrr!

Zinc lozenges! The aftertaste is vile, but if you start taking them as soon as you feel the cold coming on, they really do work.

Boo to being sick on your holiday. If I were there I'd give you comforting head-pats and show you baby otter videos.

Perhaps you should spend the first day of your vacation in the steam room at the Steamworks in Berkeley, to try and kill off the virus a little early. Might take several hours.

Medicate! Despite the cold, I hope you have a great week!

Yes, zinc preparations are quite good as they give your immune system a double jolt and kick start. Also, if you have not already hit the down, don't. I know it is Saturday, but a nice hot toddy would be better company than most of what you might encounter in the city tonight.

Ugh. So sorry to hear that! Hope the bug runs its course VERY quickly and leaves you up for enjoying most of the trip!
