3. Dude...forgot your knife going on a plane?

You're lucky. They could've made hay out of that. Glad you were ok. The air recycled in the plane gets shunted straight to your face when you are in a plane. People cough and sneeze and still haven't gotten the memo on the "IN YOUR ELBOW" sneeze/cough bulletin. A lot of times travel just wears you down from the inner stress you may not even know you're experiencing. Plus you were out west w your parents in some very trying times. Getting sick was almost inevitable.
You cannot touch your nose, mouth, or face (or even rub your eyes), when you are traveling especially. And that's a tall order. I wear gloves so when I do make contact or come close, the gloves help remind me not to do it. And, you can take them off when you're in a place where you don't have to worry so much. Just some light, even leather, gloves. Helps.
Millions of people travel everyday. Someone w an incredible flu could've handled your bags. Everyone is so overworked folks go to work sick routinely. Just so many ways to get a bad bug traveling. Gotta be so careful, or get sick. I just kind of plan on it bc it always seems to happen to me too. Saline in the nose is another trick to block intrusion.
Mind you, all of this is when I travel. Not around the city so much, but, it all applies. Hope everything's ok w Mom and Dad.
Rest and lots of water. Starve a cold, feed a fever. Recoup.
