Well, I've got it. I got sent home from work before lunchtime today because I was being so useless. I was dosed up to the nines on lemsip and cough sweets all to no avail.
My question: what old wives tales have you heard that cure the common or garden cold? Do you know if any of them have an origin in fact? Have you tried it?
My grandmother always made me drink lemonade with the fizz mixed out of it, and a drop off salt added - to keep me hydrated. I can understand this if I were being sick and needed rehydrating, but she forced this salty concoction down my throat for even the sniffles.
(Any sympathy for my bed-ridden self also welcome)
(Also - who the hell gets summer colds these days anyway?!)
