I Surrender


Damn you, cooties! It has been three days of tea, soup, really bad television-(I watched all of my Netflix selections on the same day-for shame!), sleep, tea, soup...Did I mention tea? Oh! And soup. My head is in a foggy Nyquil-induced haze, or so I think. It is quite possible that I've blown my entire cerebral cortex through my right nostril. And, for the love of Bob, I never knew how uncomfortable just a few added degrees of body temperature could be. After a day or so of wallowing about in my own contaminated clamminess I opted for a shower-the water HURT! It felt like hail!

Next year, I will have a flu shot or two, hell maybe three. I'm too old for this shit! I surrender. Waves infinite roll of snot-tinged toilet paper. I need a pardon, I have presents to wrap (and shake-I must make my Christmas booty predictions) and laundry to fold and, YIKES! a party to obsess over...

I hope all of you are feeling fab. I'm slowly making my way through the blogosphere, have your hand sanitizer ready, I'm coming through...

Peace

The toilet paper flag of surrender.

Oh how you've been missed.

Hope the last of the yuckies clear out completely. We all need you back to your Optimum Sparkle level.

Not the toilet paper white flag--LOL! I'm sorry, girl--have more tea, watch more bad movies, and feel better REALLY soon!

E-hugs and best wishes....feel all better soon!

Oh no! That sounds horrible. Hope you feel better sooner rather than later.

I got my mask and I am ready for ya. First of all, how appropriate and fabulous is your photography?? You ALWAYS have the best pictures =).

If its been 3 days you might have a couple more before you start to feel better. So far, I have been able to resist the flu shot since forever... its bad, I know, but I never really get all that sick and little Miss doesn't either... and I am always scared that as soon as we get one we will get sick.

Again, hope ya feel much better soon.

I have missed you. Sick or not, your humor is a wonderful thing:):) Feel well soon.

OK, I feel bad that I'm laughing.

Did you know we can hear the sound you make when you blow your nose through the internet? Someone sent it in to a radio station titled "Cootie and the Blowfish".

Hope you feel better in time for your party.

I am currently suffering from the Plague myself, so I feel your pain. I am sad to say that I laughed at your "cerebral cortex through my right nostril" comment. I hope it didn't hurt your feelings.

I love the picture you posted. The other hand needs to be giving the finger. :)

Oh I hope that you feel better. I got my flu shot but I think I had a 24 hour flu on Sunday. The body aches, the sniffles. Ugh. I am still recovering but I so know what you are going through. The flu is no joke. Feel better.

Beck said...

WE have the cooties here, too, and every freaking year I vow that I will get the stupid flu shot and every year I get the flu before I even can.
Next year I am getting the flu shot in May. HA! That'll show the flu who's boss.
