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?
