Probably the most interesting thing that will happen to me today.

**Cough, cough, sniff, sneeze, blow, sniff, sniff**

If you were to walk by my office at any point over the last few days, you likely would have heard some combination of these sounds and seen me digging through my purse in search of a kleenex or a cough drop. (Why can I never find anything in my purse?!) Unfortunately, as the week drags on, I’ve apparently become lazy when it comes to blowing my nose (something I don't recommend). This fact became apparent when I took a lint brush to my very black, very professional and corporate-friendly pencil skirt...right before a big meeting...where I was to meet my boss’s new boss. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she doesn’t mind snotty skirts.

(I hope I didn’t gross you out too bad. And if I did, well, reality is gross; deal with it.)

UPDATE: after my husband called me this afternoon and asked "Lazy? I don't get it. Did you just not use tissue?" I felt I should clarify that I did, in fact, use Kleenex when the aforementioned event occurred. I may have been lazy in my grip of said Kleenex, but I'm not barbaric. Apparently my husband needed the clarification...how sad.

Getting a cold is a sign of changing seasons, which means winter is on its way! Thanks for taking one for the team!
