Wednesday/ the common cold

[From Wikipedia] What the (evil) rhinovirus molecule looks like up close.
One of the 200+ virus strains implicated in the cause of the common cold have infiltrated my system.  So I ran out to the pharmacist on Wednesday night.  Help! I said, I need something that will make my nose stop running and sneezing, but still leave my sinuses clear so that I can fly on Thursday.   He gave me an antihistamine, which seemed to help.   I don’t have a fever, so it’s probably not the flu.   I read on line that one can actually have the flu and not run a fever!
