Okay, maybe that's specific to me.
You can learn from my mistakes!
1) Don't get summer colds. Just don't. When they come knocking, ignore them, and burn any tracts they slip under the door. If they call for you in the ghostly voice of doom, hang up. And don't be afraid to kick them and pummel them until they cringe and slink away.
2) When your nose is abraded from constant blowing, don't use the hand you just used to chop lemons to spread lotion around your nostrils, for they will scream.
