I feel a cold coming on, but because I am stubborn I am forcing it away.
Here is the process I am going to take to avoid it.
Sleep until 11:45 and then refuse to get out of bed until your bladder feels like it may explode.
Eat several fudgecicles for breakfast.
Eat christmas cookies for lunch.
Dye half of your hair a bit brighter purple than you intended.
Try to go to bed, but realize your boyfriend has rearranged your pillows and blankets and is flailing too much to sleep.
Go to get another fudgecicle, and be disappointed when you realize you ate all of them already.
Return to the basement to watch more episode of Friends and build a tiny nest on the couch, knowing you can never return to the upstairs world except to get more christmas cookies.
Realize that there is very little way you are not going to wake up with a slightly worse cold and resign yourself to stopping at Walmart tomorrow to get cold medicine in bulk to get you through the holidays.
