What matters

American English: "come down with something"

You most often use this expression to say you are getting sick with an illness likely caused by a virus, such as a cold, the flu or the stomach flu.

Did you come down with a cold often this past winter?  Lots of us @educhora certainly did.  You bet we're glad spring is here!  But ever sanguine, we're also happy to have (re-)learned the importance of washing our hands often.  See, Kindergarten does matter! (You may be interested to know that there is at least one person working @educhora who is a Kindergarten dropout!)
