Everybody's comfy around here (except me)

Everyone's snuggled in and cozy, except for me.  I can't stop coughing long enough to rest--and that's with the help of extra-strength Robitussin. 
Doesn't Sitka look like the Queen of the Manor up there on the sofa, snuggled in the pillows?

The creeping crud!

I thought that maybe--just maybe--I'd escape getting sick this winter.  I was a good girl and got my flu shot early! 
Since Christmas, everyone's been coming down with the flu and colds.  I can't tell you how many of the students at school, professors, and administrators have come down with the "ick."  I was feeling pretty good (literally), until Sunday night.  All of a sudden, I had a tickle in my throat.  By Monday, I knew I was in for it!  By Tuesday, I had a raging fever, a sore throat, a hacking cough, and body aches galore. 
I feel marginally better today, but I have almost no voice and a persistant, annoying cough! 
Why?  Why?  Just once, couldn't I escape?
