A theory

Lately, Elysagerth and I have been waking up with stuffy noses, congestion, and sinus headaches. On the first morning of this misfortune, the theory was offered up that someone had infected us--intentionally! Something in our food?

drive-by cold-spell casting.

That's right; someone with more-than-natural--one might even say "Supernatural"--powers has been casting spells at our apartment from a moving vehicle, causing us to get sick. It's the only explanation.

The next day, we were talking about dreams and how I was getting ideas for stories right before going sleep and then not writing them down with the intention of doing so in the morning (I'm actually pretty good at remember things that way)...but not remembering the at all. And then the answer dawns upon us--our colds are in fact magically induced, but these sniffly symptoms were not the goal of the spell. Rather, these symptoms are the side effects of a spell that steals ideas!

Clearly, this is the only explanation that makes any sense.

I think if you consider all that we know about the epidemiology of disease, than yes, that is the only logical explanation.
