Cold and Squishy

I. Have. A. Cold. It is SUMMERTIME and I have a cold. Germs have no respect for the seasons.

Speaking of which, it’s jellyfish season in Boston. Every year about this time big clear bubbles of jellyfish swarm the waterways near the harbor. You can see right through them. They don’t appear to have brains, although the big ones have 4 white circles inside that look like a 4-leaf clover. They sort of blobulate through the water without much effort, looking incredibly peaceful, dumb, and free of colds. I almost envy them. Although, looking at the water they’re in, I usually reverse that feeling quick-smart. Boston’s waterways have a long way to go before they’ll be anywhere near inviting enough for me to swim in them.
