Have a Cold?
Two weeks ago, I was invited to a theater. It was midnight when the play ended. The weather was so cold, and there was no bus available at that time. I had to go home on foot. I was freezing. When I got home, I drank a little warm milk and went directly to bed. The next morning, I felt miserable. Apparently, I had caught a cold. I had nose congestion, fever, and sore throat. I kept coughing and sneezing.
My roommate recommended that I visit a doctor. So, she took me to a doctor. The doctor only took my temperature, and then wrote a long prescription which was full of antibiotics! … I put the prescription aside, called my mother and asked for a remedy for cold. She advised me to drink a lot of liquids and take some kind of pill to help me to sleep. I did so, and after 3 days I got over the cold.
