Let me take you back,
about a month or two,
I had a horrendous cold,
though felt more like the flu.
I could barely leave the bathroom,
let alone comb my hair,
and needed to go to the pharmacy,
the situation was not at all fair.
Not cause of my fever,
or rising body heat,
but because I had dated someone,
who lives right down the street.
I had to risk it,
needed to get in my car,
knowing I could run into him,
while grossly pale and sans bra.
Fortunately dear friends,
it turned out okay,
I bartered with the gods of dating,
and they let me get away.
The moral of my story,
be careful where you do who you do,
cause a cold could be more than just a fever,
it could be social suicide too!
