Another Bright Idea
So I came up with this great idea - why not put a wet bathing suit top under my shirt and sit outside? Wouldn't that cool me off? The answer is no. It didn't work. And when I mentioned it to my friend D, she said, "oh, my mother always said that if you wear wet clothes you'll get a cold."
I laughed. Are you serious? It's over 100 degrees outside. How in the world can I get a cold from wearing wet clothing in this heat?
I don't know how it happened but I got a cold. Seriously. I woke up this morning, the day after the wet swim suit, and have a cold. Now D's mother is dead, so is it possible that this is a beyond the grave thing going on here?
Right now, I'm on my second cup of green tea, and wishing I had listened to D's mother. From the Other Side, no less.
