What should the word “lurp” mean? This question has a purpose. I can’t promise that my limited attention span will enable me to reveal that purpose, however.
I am recovering from my 47th cold of the winter, by the way. The first year I lived in New York, I was sick all the time just like this. That was because I wasn’t used to riding in the mobile petri dish that is the subway, and because my office was a big open area where everyone sneezed on each other all day. (For fun.)
Now, however, I suspect I’m sick because I’ve been traveling, so I can’t really complain. Traveling is fun! Honestly, having a cold isn’t so bad either. I secretly (OK, openly) enjoy having a slight cold, because it gives me an excuse to lie around my house and relax. The rest of the time, I have to wait until I have a hangover.
