If you get a cold this winter, let me suggest the following:
Go to the bathroom. Often. Especially if you, like me, are doing Weight Watchers, and are trying to hit your daily water quota. And also if you are trying to flush your body of the gallons and gallons of snot that are in your skull.
Otherwise, if perhaps you forget to empty your bladder regularly and then you have a violent coughing fit, something awful might happen. Such as, you might pee in your pants while coughing up nasty loogies.
Not that I would know anything about that. Of course not. That would be far too embarrassing to share with people.
But I tell you, it's sound advice.
