  • As I was drying my hair this morning I suddenly began pondering why we call a cold "a cold" but when we get the flu, it's "the flu."

    Then I wondered why I always seem to think of these things while I'm drying my hair... Do you think it has anything to do with the application of heat to my head? Maybe it's just boredom from performing a tedious task...
