Erkältung or HELP I've got a cold!

It is that time of year again folks! Time for colds to strike unsuspecting children who get sick somehow.

Could it be that they like to run their hands along dirty grimy subway walls? Could the culprit be the dirt they ingest on a fairly regular basis? Or maybe just playing in the sand with jam still on your hands?

Regardless, we needed more tissues. So I went to the store and bought some. Relief...

Ah-choo...

Ah-choo...

more sneezing...??

What is going on?


Have you ever blown your nose with something that smells like the Baby Powder Fairy went overboard on a pine tree and then chopped down the pine tree, ground it up and made tissues out of it???

Expat Morale of the Day: Don't buy ANYTHING (especially things that go near your nose) that says Balsam on it!

Ahh, colds. So not cool.
p.s. Kimber, you didn't tell me you have a cold. I'm missing out on your life.

haha...I also learned the hard way what "balsam" meant when printed on German paper products. The whole apartment smelled like the scented toilet paper we accidentally got! Not cool! I was a little surprised that Germans are so into the scented stuff. I accidentally bought several products that were scented.
