Boy oh boy have I caught something that isn’t fun (but when is a cold really fun in the first place?). All last week my host mom and host dad were really sick with something and so I doubled up on my Vitamin C intake hoping I could keep it away from me. Nope. Still caught it. I’m determined not to miss any more school this semester so I was luckily able to see the doctor in Chisinau before I came back to my site and she loaded me up with lots of medicine to hopefully fight it quickly. However, when I woke up this morning I was still feeling gross. I’m taken the medicine and hopefully it will kick in soon.
But the funny part of this story was when I went to the casa mica (the small house where my host parents live which has the kitchen and the bathroom-not toilet, but bathtub/shower/sink) and my host mom asked me how I was feeling. I told her not any better and then she mocked my response because I am so congested I sound very nasal-esc when I talk which is even more than normal considering American’s tend to speak more nasal-esc than Romanian speakers. It was pretty funny- maybe you had to be there.
