|Can we say "irony"?

Ok, it's March...just inches away from spring. I'd been congratulating my immune system for going through my first real east coast winter without getting sick (plus, I haven't gotten anything since December 2005). There have been such horrible, gnarly things going around and I have succumbed to none of them. So I've been feeding my immune system lots of nice fruits and vegetables to celebrate its utmost excellence.
When, lo and behold--I'm sick. And of all things to be sick with, it's the frickin' common cold. I'm almost laughing at the irony...not Mono, not the flu, not strep throat, not sinusitis or hepatitis...a cold. lol.
Well, I guess I should consider it a blessing that it's only this and not something really bad (even though this cold is a doozy), but still. My immune system's reminding me too much of, say, a math genius taking a really challenging test and getting everything right except 2+2.
