Today’s Bummer of the Day (the Perfect Moment will come later) is something I have to write first. It is about catching a cold. While this idiom makes for fun teaching to my students–they get confused between catching a cold and having a cold and the respective tenses required–it is a complete bummer for me.
It came upon me yesterday while I was teaching. My voice started to get raspy…well, raspier than usual. My voice is already deep and scratch. I wonder what my students though. Needless to say, by the end of day, I was more congested and feeling less than 100 percent. A complete bummer
You see, I have been exercising regularly and watching what I am eating lately. This has been very positive as I have noticed a nice build up of muscles and stamina. It has also resulted in a small, but significant, weight loss. Today, however, I want nothing more to relax and eat comfort food. Why now? I was on a definite roll.
I wonder how this is going to play out.
