before my eyes

I caught a cold before my own eyes today.
I ignored the distant rumble of sneezes.
The darkening clouds of congestion.
The threatening throat tickle.
And then I realized that I couldn't outrun the storm.
It was upon me in an instant.
At days end, I staggered out into the parking lot and grimly steered for home.
Family fled before me.
I am self medicating with Vitamin D and blogging.
Here's hoping it will blow over (wow, what a pun) during the night and that morning will be clear and sweetly bright.
