My immune system

I know it's a running joke that when the kids start school, they get sick. And sure enough, ours did. Everyone talks about how it is helping their immune system which I dig. I love the immune system. It's hardcore. But if school helps you build up your immune system, why the heck am I getting sick? I've had 35 years to build up the defenses - I should not be getting the same gorram cold every single time!

And before you email me, yes, I understand the viruses mutate and that's why I get sick. That doesn't mean I have to like it. What kills me is, it's not that bad. You heard me correctly, not that bad. But it's just bad enough to make me feel like I've been run over by a miniature truck like the kind the Shriners drive in parades. All I really want to do is collapse on the couch with a piping hot cup of tea and binge-watch 'Agents of Shield' but I have to get lunches ready, and try to at least clean up the big pieces of clutter. Oh, God, do I have clean pants for tomorrow? Better do laundry too.
