5 Things To Do When Dealing With A 2 Week Cold 5. Make yourself Tussin mojitos. 4. Re-enact humorous cold medicine commercials, like the one where the large man says, "You've got to feed a cold!" while holding up the 6 foot long hoagie. 3. Shorten your sentences, and avoid certain words that trigger coughing spells. 2. Nervously wonder if the instruction about taking a cough drop every two hours is more like a guideline. 1.

I definitely want to see the team collective "Oh, snap! I think we actually won the bobsled" Face.
