Is there anything more disturbing…

…than looking in the mirror and realizing that you’ve blow a vein or two in your eye and can’t recall what you might have done to have caused it? I had that experience this morning here at work. If I had to guess I’d say it’s probably all the damned sneezing I’ve been doing thanks to this cold which has remained mostly in my sinuses. Coughing has been minimal thanks to a big reduction in drainage as of the last day or so, but every now and then I launch into a violent sneezing fit that makes my head feel like it’s about to asplode. Needless to say I’ve had a good sinus headache going for most of the day so far. And to top it all off I look like I might have taken a punch to the eye or something.

Stupid cold. Though I suppose I should be grateful it’s not the flu.
