Every time I have a cold I recall my Theory on Snot (Patent Pending). I've actually proposed this theory to my doctors, and they all look at me like I'm crazy. They may be right, but hear me out...
You know how you tend to lose weight when you're sick? OK, hold that thought.
And WHERE does all that snot come from anyways? I mean really. You have a really bad cold, you haven't been able to hardly eat or drink in days and your nose continues to run C O N S T A N T L Y. Boxes of tissue are used. You blow your nose every two minutes. Your bedroom floor is covered in tissues and still your nose continues to run.
OK, so this is where my theory comes in. What if snot is actually fat cells? It makes sense. You lose weight when your sick and there's really no where else for the snot to come from or anything else it could possibly be, right?
Or perhaps it's just my way of making myself feel better when I've blown my nose for the gazillionth time. But next time you have a cold think of all the extra weight you're getting rid of each time you blow your nose and tell me that it doesn't make you feel just a little bit better.
