I mentioned the other day that I've spent most of the time lately feeling sick. I've had a cold for a week now that I can't shake. I went to the store and it seemed everybody was coughing or sneezing. I don't recall this ever being so bad before. I guess the microbes are winning the war.
I really wonder why, in that grand scheme of things, they invented viruses. I mean, they seem to do anything positive for people or life in general. At least some bacteria provide some benefits like making yougurt and aiding digestion. I can't think of one good thing a virus ever did for anybody.
