I am indeed under the spell of some sorta common cold. My throat hurts the most but I don’t have a runny or stuffy nose. Nor does my head hurt. I have developed a really tiny cough though. Funny thing about the cough… If you’ve been with this blog for a while, you’ll know I developed a very nasty cough about two years ago in my last semester as a grad student. The cough lasted approximately two and half months.
My coughing was so bad, I thought it was whooping cough since it would rack my body so much. Anyways, it took a long, long time to get over it. To this day, I still don’t know what it was. Scary. Even my cough today feels a bit like the old one. It’s a part of me now. Sorta like when Frodo returned to the Shire after his arduous journey to rid Middle Earth of the Ring. His injuries never fully healed and were a constant reminder of the trials he had to endure.
Where else can you read a blog about coughs and Lord of the Rings?
