My sore throat of a couple days developed into something that seemed more like a cold last night, so today I am staying home, resting, hydrating, and eating plenty of Xy’s patented chicken soup. Seems like I’ve had lots of little ailments over the last year that seem like mini-colds — a little briefer and less severe than the real thing. Maybe I’ve just forgotten what colds are like, or maybe I’m getting exposed to new kiddie bugs via daycare, or maybe Xy’s patented chicken soup nips them in the bud. Hard to say, but I hope to be back in the game tomorrow. This morning I was idly wondering, if someone invented a drug that cured the common cold but also increased one’s chances of getting cancer later in life, would it sell?
