Q: What is the best way to cure a pesky cold?
Sleep it off
Nothing helps me more when I’m feeling under the weather than a long night’s sleep or nap in my big comfy bed.
Gold Bears to the rescue
When I notice I’m feeling sick, I grab a bag of Gold Bears and my troubles start to fade away. Seriously, these are just perfect.
Actively hunt out a nastier sickness. The more destructive virus wins out in the end, which means no more cold.
A hot meal
When I’m sick, a warm meal goes a long way. It helps you breathe when you have a stuffed nose.
Don’t overdo it
Just skip that class and nap. Don’t push yourself to your limits. Remember, we aren’t invincible.
I wear a warm hat to make breathing easier and take lots of medication. You get over it eventually.
Drug induced coma
I’m not even sure NyQuil helps with any cold symptoms, but at least it knocks me out so I’ll stop whining about it.
A hot chocolate and ice cream can go a long way in fixing a sore throat and a stuffy head on the days you really don’t feel like eating anything else anyway.
I usually just watch tons of cartoons in my bed like a bum until I either die or feel better.
Sleep, sleep, sleep
My own personal cure for the Moscow plague is sleeping and then sleeping some more. Thank you, night-time cold medicine.
Cleaning from the inside
Whenever I’m sick, I try to drink a lot of water so my body has the resources to do what it has to do. Feeling sick? Hydrate.
Couch it out
A new book, “Gilmore Girls” playing in the background and lots of rest on the couch. This way your roommate can tend to all your food and medicine needs.
Go to California and lay on the beach until the sunshine brings revitalization.
Oldie but a goodie
The ultimate sickness cure is the same as it has always been for me — chicken noodle soup and cuddle up on the couch watching movies.
