Ugh. I'm getting sick again already. I can feel it in my throat and chest. I've had maybe four days free of runny noses since my last cold, and I can just feel it starting up once more. Teaching children in the winter? worst idea ever.

I told Mr. Valín about this today, as a sort of 'don't be surprised if I cancel some lessons' forewarning, and he advised eating garlic as a means of fending off the dread disease. So I decided to experiment - I had a nice dinner of beef and potato wedges with about half a bulb of garlic chopped up in it, but that didn't really seem to affect the sick feeling, although it did make me happy so I was less focused on worrying about getting ill. Anyway I decided to step up the experiment, so right now I am nibbling slowly on a raw garlic clove. The experience is about as intense as one would expect. I could really care less if I smell like a pizza kitchen for the next week, so long as I'm not hacking up a lung and having my brains running out my nose for the same amount of time.

I may be giving my tongue chemical burns from the intensity of the garlic, but it is indeed strangely soothing on my sore throat. I will report on the results of my cold-destroying garlic-chewing experiment as they become available.
