My itchy throat has now mysteriously transmuted into impressive streams of mucus leaking through my nose at every opportunity and a vibrantly raw headache. I'm not very good at being ill, so let's hope this doesn't last long for everyone's sake. I'm sure the body has good reasons for exerting itself in this way, I just don't know what they are.
(Noi is still trying to cast off her own painful cough, by the way. So there's little comfort there.)
