We’re fine…


Just catching some epic Z’s. Oh, did I mention I gave the thing to Uncle B? But of course I did! I think I must have a milder variant, though — I don’t feel as sick as the others sound.

If the congestion isn’t too bad (it isn’t) and I don’t have a headache or nausea (I don’t), I kind of enjoy the whole ‘sleeping the clock around’ thing. I usually struggle with killer insomnia; being on a drifty, floaty cloud of semi-consciousness for several days running is almost a treat.

Also — the books I’ve read!

Sorry about your (and Uncle B’s) illness, but “the books I’ve read”: 🙂

Today’s a sick day.
You’re off to Great Books!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have time to relax.
You can do some fun reading
While you lie on your back!
You have lots of books. And you have a whole day!
And YOU are the weasel who a chance for book-play!

You’ll look up and down the reviews. Look ’em over with care.
About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.”
With your head full of NyQuil® and snuggled in comfy sheets,
you’ll look through the books in search of a treat!.

And you may not find any
you’ll really want to slog through.
In that case, of course,
It’s Game Time for you!

It’s opener there
in the wide cyberspace.

Out there fun things can happen
and frequently do
to sniffle-nosed Weasels
laid up with the flu!

Oh, speaking of Dr. Suess, and if you DO run out of things to read, here is an on-line copy of his book:

You can get pretty much the same effect with heroin.

Just sayin’

My British son in law has it too. Ugh! I hope you and Uncle B get over it soon!

So sorry to read that Uncle Badger is sick, too. Does your nearby drug store deliver? You’ve mentioned before that Uncle B is fond of herbal concoctions. Is he using something in particular?

I used to have trouble sleeping before I had children. Now I’m out almost as soon as my head hits the pillow. Not sure this method works for everyone though 😛

I’m not willing to find out, Mrs P!

Come to think of it, I’m not capable any more, either.

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
