Mucus Trooper, Lights Are Gonna Find You

For anyone who like words, The Word Spy is an invaluable read, giving you a feel for the linguistic zeitgeist.

More importantly, it has given me a new phrase to describe my wife at the moment: mucus trooper. These are the noble souls who troop into work every day, carrying their flu and cold germs along with them as happy little passengers. These germs are promiscuous sorts, and before long we have a whole new load of mucus troopers to keep the clan going.

If I get another cold, it’s straight to bed for me.
