I have a cold with a throat-scraping cough. To avoid coughing, I’m careful not to speak at all. Instead I’m carrying index cards at work with things written on them. These captions will handle almost anything:
· I’ll Email you
· This too shall pass.
But to avoid coughing I also have to be careful not to tilt my head down. I’m moving about with ramrod posture and trying not to be curious about anything low in my line of vision.
