I am writing this blog today to ask a serious question. Is jello the new chicken noodle soup? I personally think that eating jello when you are sick is about as logical as wearing shoes inside the house, and yet my host family is convinced that both are related to the common cold. I have a little bit if a runny nose and a sore throat. I told my host mom, and she said that the cause of my predicament is because I walk around barefoot all the time (and not because there is no soap or toilet paper in my school’s bathroom). The simple solution she suggested was jello. I’m beginning to wonder if I have been sent to the twilight zone. Let me know if any of you have any tips on how to get back to reality.
