“Get out of the car and brave the elements. Feel the wind on your skin; feel the mucus freeze in your nostrils.

The rescue urge is strong here: Sneeze three times in a row, and you’ll be set upon by burly EMTs who will lash you to a gurney, take your blood pressure, start an IV, and blow your nose.”— Garrison Keillor, “Isn’t Winter Great? Garrison Keillor Thinks So,” Reader’s Digest, February 2015
