I Caught a Stupid Cold

Dear Liza,

After two years of wearing masks everywhere and washing my hands anytime I touch anything outside the house, I must have gotten careless this past week. I have caught a cold. Was it at Eb and Bean Sunday afternoon? We were wearing masks inside. On the bus, too, and the Orange line train.

It’s not Covid. I used the home test, and just don’t feel sick enough, honestly, to have the murderous bug. I am vaxxed and boosted. Nope, this is a cold.

A brain stupefying, drippy nose inducing, energy sucking cold. So I am sending pictures from the past that make me smile.

I hope that I am done with the cold by the time the cool rain turns to sunshine.


Grandma Judy.
