Achoo it's cold season
Sneezing, coughing, stuffy nose...no I'm not describing symptoms on a Benadryl commercial. I am describing my symptoms. I'm afraid I've caught a cold. And yes Dad, for Pete's sake, I do dress up warm when I step out. Sometimes a cold just can' t be avoided, especially when it's plus 14 one day and minus 5 the next. This rapidly changing weather brings about colds and flu's. Is there a etiquette to be followed when you have a cold or flu? We believe so. Let's face it, if you live in a condominium you have lots of neighbours, and chances are you are going to run into some of them as you go to and from your unit. Common courtesy dictates that you have tissue at hand and you dispose of them properly. Also when coughing and sneezing you now do so "Dracula Style" ( into your elbow not your hand). Sounds strange at first but it makes sense as your hand is more likely to spread the cold through shaking of hands and touching of door knobs etc. So if you have a cold or flu buck up and enjoy the chicken noodle soup, but don't be a bad neighbour by spreading it around to your "too polite to walk out of the elevator when they see you" neighbours.
