Yes, a bug caught me. I believe it got me at a party. A party for my bonus grandchild. She turned 21 in August. A lot of people came together to celebrate; alas, Birthday Girl went to Florida. We celebrated anyways. CeCe set up a bouncy house for the kids. Which is where I believe Thing 2 and I both got caught by a bug. Thing 2 got sick just one day before I did.
Why was I in a bouncy house anyways? A bunch of CeCe’s friends decided to plank in there. I was in rare form. CeCe prodded me to twerk afterwards: “If you think she’s good at planking, you should see her twerk.” What one has to do with the other, I don’t know. But, in the moment, how could I say no?
Coughing and sneezing started 48 hours later.
So, here’s my list through a haze of cold medication:
Pizza delivery: need I say more? Pesto Chicken, The Works, and a coupon kept me in meals all weekend.
Effective no-drowsy daytime medicine and blissful nighttime remedies. Thank you big and small pharma.
Ergonomic chairs: Body aches abated, I got my Friday and Saturday assignments finished and sent to the editor.
Fantasy Football: I won! Both leagues. Unconscious competent; that’s me.
Dancing with the Stars On Demand: The perfect drone to dull my mind and rest my body. (Except for Gary B, which sort of grossed me out, and made me wonder what’s his angle.)
Mild weather: I know it got a little cool this weekend, but each time I peeked my head out, I got greeted with sunshine and a perfect 72 degrees.
Librarians who take “Talk Like a Pirate Day” seriously. Arghhh!!!
