Apparently, the only cold I have is the one in my head. Yes, after three years without a single cold…I got one. It was rather inevitable since everyone in my office has had it, people rarely stay home, and if you ask them if they have a cold, they tell you they aren’t sick. It does kinda give it away that they are hacking and coughing and blowing their noses and can’t hear on the phone cause their ears are plugged, but nonetheless, I have had people tell me they aren’t sick and then proceed to start coughing and sneezing. What can you do?
The worst part of my cold hasn’t been me being sick. The worst part is that I gave it to Rott. He’s not a good sick person. He gets angry about being sick. Things go bang, crash, boom when Rott is sick. And then I feel uber guilty. Not that I meant to give it to him because of course I didn’t, but I do live in the same house. I guess I shouldn’t have sat in the recliner and fallen asleep thereby spreading my germs around the living room for him to ingest. I’ll just keep to myself the fact that he could have woken me and told me to get the hell to bed and away from him. *sigh*
Now, the other reason for this title is that it’s November. Hello? Turkey Day is just around the corner. And what temperature do you think it was here yesterday? 82. WTF? That’s too hot for me. Where’s my winter? Where’s my cold? I want 68 degrees so I can put on a coat, wear a sweater, and not start sweating at 1 in the afternoon! I freaking hate global warming. I swear it’s half the reason I got the damned cold. The temperature here in SoCal cannot make up it’s mind. Hot, cold. Rain, wind. Dry, wet. This fall has seen record breaking heat waves. 107 in October? 102? This isn’t right. I want my cold.
Well, if I must have hot, then I’ll settle for Marcus. His kinda hot is always welcome with me.

I’m gonna take myself off to work but before I do, you can check out my Lex Valentine blog to see six sentences from my latest WIP, a sequel to Rock My World that released on Friday at Ellora’s Cave. There’s also a post there called Back to Back about Rock My World and my Veteran’s Day release Honorable Silence. I’ll be at Castles and Guns tomorrow and I’m also part of Eliza Gayle’s Naughty November. If you like naughty excerpts, you’ll want to check out Eliza’s site.
Have a great Monday!
