What?! You've got a cold? That's too bad! I know it must be hard having to walk the oh-so-long distance your bed to the bathroom to get your cough medicine-with a jarring headache! Well don't worry, using the K'nex you keep under the bed, you can create a portable mini-medicine cabinet that will help you rest, and more importantly get better soon! Now take that last cough drop and let's get started!
