I wonder if more people really are sick these days, or if the increased use of social media (and the accompanying facebook and twitter status updates) just make it seem like more people are sick. At any rate, as Maya was posting her sickness-induced soup piece last week, I was at home, making my own soup. I got the bug.
It seems as if everyone around me had his or her own rules to survive a seasonal cold. “Eat garlic,” said one friend. “Anything fermented is good,” said another.
But I think that we all know that the recipe to good heath is plenty of rest and some homemade chicken noodle soup…
…with just a tiny bit of lemon.
P.S. Wash your hands, people.
