Shoulda Took A Sick Day

Yeah. I guess I'm on of that 32%.

Everyone in my house has been sick for the last three days. Except me.

The wife, the daughter, both grandkids. Bronchitis and sinus infections. We have gone through enough Kleenex in the last couple of days to fund a small country. And our kitchen counter looks like a pharmacy. I'm willing to bet Walgreens will call us if they run short of any children's cold meds in the next day or two.

I've been lucky.

Well, I was lucky for a couple of days, anyway.

Woke up this morning coughing and hacking. The wife said "Are you getting sick?"


"You look like you don't feel good."

"Nope. I'm fine."

To prove it I helped her move books and bookshelves all morning so we can clear out the extra room so our daughter has some space for herself.

That almost kilt me but I wouldn't admit it. I really should have stayed home today. Chills, fever, cough and sniffles... the whole works.

Me, I blame those rotten kids.

I'll feel better or worse tomorrow. I'm sure of it.

Sunday is going to be Watergate Day and Eat Your Vegetables Day.

But I wouldn't recommend the vegetables at the Watergate.

I hear they might have bugs.


  1. I will surely eat my vegetables today, since my garden is starting to produce abundantly.

    1. Donna- I wish my pizza plant would start bearing soon!

  2. A bunch of my chickens are sneezing too.

    1. Critter- Sneezing chickens. That sounds bad.

      Or a name for your band. One or the other.
