Friday Wisdom – Head Cold

My dear old daddy (and he liked being called “my dear old daddy”) use to say:

If you get a head cold and take care of yourself by resting, drinking plenty of fluids and taking some extra vitamin C – you’ll get over it in seven days.

If you don’t it could take a week.

More wisdom next time,

    Brings to mind all those acne creams. I heard the average pimple last seven days, too. Cold and pimples. Sounds like they’re in cahoots.

    More paternal wisdon: the draughtsman’s cure was to find an old brass bedsted with brass bedknobs. Carefully draw a line exactly down the middle of the bed. Lie on the line and drink whisky until the bedknobs come into line.
