You know when they say, "Put a jacket on or you'll catch cold?"

Yea, apparently that's not just buying into some sort of old wive's tale.

Apparently that's how people actually get colds.

I would know. I got one. I looked out the window when I woke up Saturday morning (11:45), saw that it was perfectly sunny, and figured it would be one of those unseasonably warm days. There were a disgustingly wonderful amount of those last week. I thought the trend would continue.

Halfway to the Tisch building, late for a meeting, without a sweater, I realized, no, the trend has no intention of continuing. It's November. On the East Coast. No one's ever too behind schedule to grab a sweater, dumbass.

I want to know how people get away with doing so many stupid things on a daily basis and evading the results. All the stupid things I do have very clear-cut consequences.

See also: my runny nose and sore throat.

See also: "I really hope we can still be friends." Turns out it's about as much fun to say as it is to hear, even (especially?) when you mean it.

Yes, I'd love you to make me chicken soup, bundle me up on the couch and let me watch movies all day. I never stayed home sick in elementary school very much, but somewhere along the line I got the impression that that's what happens.

That is what happens, right?

What if I promise to wear two sweaters next time?
