Meaning of CODE in English

When one has a cold and his/her nose and throat is stuffy, this word can replace the word cold. Usually, the sick's friends will understand. If the friends are horribly mean and insensitive, however, they will point and laugh every time the word is uttered for the next 15 years. Example: It's code.
