I got a Cold
The weather is changing. It is now spring. Some days are mild and some days are cold. On the weekend, I went to meet a friend and I did not take a jacket. We were outside for the afternoon. I think that’s why I got a cold.
Yesterday, after work, I went to the pharmacy. I wore a face mask and walked to the pharmacy on the high street. I had a runny nose.
The pharmacist prescribed me some medicine. The pharmacist told me to drink lots of tea and get lots of rest.
I took the pharmacist’s advice and rested at home. I watched TV and had some chicken soup. I was a little bored but I wanted to take care of my health.
How can you avoid getting a cold?
