Fighting a cold for the last week, I've still got this annoying little cough once in a while. Ran into a neighbor while walking the dog who heard me cough, and offered up this story:
She had a colonoscopy a few weeks back which was complicated by aspiration. As a result, she had been coughing up a lung ever since, although it was getting better. Her germophobic sister-in-law, upon hearing her cough, drew back in alarm, arm drawn over her face in fear.
Neighbor: You know I'm not contagious.
Germophobic sister-in-law: No.
Neighbor: Yeah, this is from my colonoscopy.
GSIL: Did they go up too far?
