a cold

I haven't had a cold since January, and I thought maybe I could go a year, but no, I got one. I went to the doctor as soon as I felt it coming on because here my colds usually turn into a lingering sore throat/ cough, and because, you know, I'm all Taiwanese now and go to the doctor at the first hint of sickness. So I got my random medicine. I don't have a fever but he gave me some pills to take in case I get one. I tried to communicate that I didn't want the in-case-of-fever pills, but he said he'd put them in a different packet so I wouldn't get confused. Turns out they're... wait for it... 200 mg ibuprofen tablets. So nothing too scary.
