    A little cold

    I’ll sniff I’ll sneaze I’ll complaine in my head.
    I’ll hold it in I won’t do much tell I’m half dead.
    I’ll throw up I’ll keep moving it’ll pass
    I’ll cough tell it’s all over
    my snot comes out in a large mass.
    I’ll drink tea, eat fruits, and have my girlfriend take care of me.
    I won’t do it but she will
    I will eat anythiny but I will not take a pill.
