Cold or Flu

I've had a cold or a flu for the last few days (can't tell the difference). It started as a very sore throat and has expanded into a veritable hydra of symptoms. It's a very creative disease, I'll give it that. Yesterday I was sneezing all day. The day before, I couldn't hear out of one ear. Today, my nose has been itching. It's not regular itching though. It's the kind of itch that exists in the untouchable 4th dimension. I can feel the itch, but nothing I do can make it go away. Crinkling my nose seems to work temporarily, but like that 'ole cat that keeps coming back, the itch creeps back in when I'm not looking.
