I have such a head cold. I think I'm contributing to the eventual snot death of the universe.

I discovered the perfect drug combination for me.  4 Sudafed or one 120mg time release Sudafed plus one Claritin in the morning, 4 or 1 Sudafed plus two Benadryl at night.

My old friend and boss Dan always recommended two alternating shots each of whiskey and Louisiana hot sauce. I think on the "you won't care HOW sick you are" principle.

He wasn't a great boss, but he was a good guy. He gave me my first non-temp job. I hope he's doing better now than he was.

Actually, on a serious note...squirt vinegar up your nose.  Painful...yes...but effective.

Breathing boiling vinegar fumes also works, but not nearly as dramatically.

Things I do:

really super-hot tea—don't drink it, just breath the steam.

big chunks of horseradish—chew well.

Moaning and whimpering is an option. Also lots of spicey food. Or Vicks rub.
