Who ever came up with the term "Cold" for the illness that now prevails in my body? The fever, the sore throat, the stuffy brain and head. It is not a "Cold" it is a plague - a PLAGUE, I tell you!!!
I happen to prefer the term one might encounter in a Jane Austen novel; "Ague" (though I think in P&P, Jane aught a "Chill" when she went to visit her boyfriend's sisters).
I don't know how to say "Ague". Is it "Ache"? or "AgUh"? or "Age" with a hard g? Whatever way it's said, "Ague" looks good. I think the Modern day term, I believe, is "ugh". And that sums it all up.
As we all know, these things usually last a couple of days, so I'm sure this will go away soon.
I hope you are all healthy and enjoying your summer.
