A month ago I had a nasty cold and a bought of bronchitis. Now, I've come down with yet another round. Everywhere I go, people seem to be comparing symptoms and everybody seems to be sick. I've never seen anything quite like it.
What I've always wondered is why we get sick. In that overall grand scheme of things, why did they decide we need things like viruses? Let's have trees-good idea. Let's have rabbits-okay. How about fish-fine. But, why would they come up with something such as a virus?
They say we all evolved from microbes and that viruses have had millions of years to get ready for us. That may be so. It sure sucks when they get a hold of you.
