I caught a cold recently and it feels pretty dumb to have somehow done it in a place where the weather is so consistently mild. But I think all it took was the weather being a little colder than usual and an open window that had been blowing on me all day. I only realized later that it was relatively chilly but by then I already had a sore throat and the wheels were in motion.

I had thought that it might be possible I’d be less prone to getting colds in San Diego, but NOPE! It seems I consistently get sick once or twice a year no matter where I am.
