I'll stick with key lime pie from now on, thanks

Things that came to mind in the past three hours:

1. I vaguely remembered hearing that Vitamin C is good for fighting colds.

2. This evening I ate an entire lime.

3. It is almost impossible to peel a lime neatly like a tangerine.

4. But I did it anyway.

5. Limes are very, very, very sour. Especially when you try eating them plain as if they were a tangerine.

6. I now have a zillion volts of Vitamin C in my system.

7. This means I probably won't get scurvy for the rest of my life... or the year 2019, whichever comes first.

8. I will, however, still have to take a Kleenex with me when I go to bed tonight, since apparently Vitamin C cures all colds except the one I currently have.

9. While Googling a decent lime picture to use for this post, I discovered there are also such things as limequats and blood limes.

nonamedufus: My cold is surprisingly better today, so maybe the lime helped after all!

gypsyroxylee: Yay! Welcome! :)

I cannot believe there are limequats and blood limes, but I'm sorry you still have a cold. Me, too. I can hardly drag myself to work, and then I just sit there. People keep asking me, "Mike, we're used to seeing you just sit there, but why are you coughing and sneezing?" I'm glad they're concerned.

P.S. I had to post this comment three times because I kept catching mistakes after the fact. It's the cold.

MikeWJ: LOL! Get well soon. I understand completely. :)
