Default How to ruin a weekend

I took a vacation day to get a five day weekend, thereby missing the coldest weather coming in.
Well, a coworker sat next to me at lunch yesterday and started sniffling.
Yep. I woke up at 02:00 ,my normal time, and had a scratchy throat. Now I'm heading into full blown head cold misery.
Guess I'm hunkering down with some zicam, hot toddies, and tissues.

Copious amounts of Vitamin C will cut down your sick time...

I'll take 6 500mg horsepills when I feel the scratch in my throat, and 4 more every few hours, works for me...

That may seem like overkill as your body can only absorb so much at a time but it's not like you can OD on C...

You can. It's called OCD

Seriously though, it takes longer than 12 hours for a viral infection. Usually 2-3 days for adults. Most likely OP already had the bug before ms sniffles joined for lunch.

It's actually good luck to be off when you're sick. For me at least.
