Cold season is coming, and a new survey asked people to name the things which make us feel better when we catch one.  The top three are:  Taking a nap . . . curling up on the couch with a blanket . . . and eating chicken noodle soup.


Cold season is coming . . . although I’m pretty sure whenever anyone gets a cold they’ll go into all-out panic mode that it’s absolutely, definitely, 100% coronavirus.  So this should be a fun season.

Anyway, a new survey asked what things make us feel better when we’re dealing with a cold.  And here are the top 10 . . .

1.  Taking a nap.

2.  Curling up on the couch with a blanket.

3.  Eating chicken noodle soup.

4.  Drinking hot tea.

5.  Binge watching TV.

6.  Watching one of our favorite movies.

7.  Wearing warm socks.

8.  Cuddling with our pet.

9.  Cuddling with our significant other.  (To get THEM sick too?  Pass.  I need them waiting on me.)

10.  Playing board games.
