It's Official

It is now official. I know with even more certainty that I cannot believe everything that I read. I have been suspicious before when I read articles about people who couldn't have possibly said or done what was written--like in the grocery store checkout line when the cover of a "magazine" told all about the brawl between Jennifer and Angelina over Brad. (I'm pretty sure Jennifer could hold her own. She's stronger than she looks!)

But today, when I read the article on the front page of the Press, I knew without a doubt that what they wrote was absolutely untrue. The headline read "Stomach flu spreads through county." Umm, yeah. I know. I've had it. Then I began reading the article. And I quote, "The bug...lasts 24 hours." 24 HOURS!?!? Then what kind of mutant "bug" have I had for the last 7 DAYS ? That's right, 7 days. That's 144 more hours than 24! I have never in my life been as sick as I have been this last week. Without going into detail, let's just say that what I have been through I would not wish on anyone. (Except for maybe the Press staff writer of the article in question.)

In case you're concerned, I think I'm getting better. And if you don't get this bug, you can thank me. I've apparently had it long enough for all of us.

Thank you for posting! I am concerned, and I spent most of today waffling about whether to call you and check on your progress, weighing the comfort of knowing against the risk of waking you up from a restorative sleep. So I'm glad you're at least upright again and able to operate a keyboard.

Thank you for taking on extra helpings of the martian death flu on my behalf. I don't have anymore mommy sick days to spend after the Thanksgiving virus of effluvial horrors.

I was hoping you were feeling better. Wow, what a horrible week for you. I do hope you're permanently on the mend. And just as Katrina said, thanks for taking on my share, I'm out 'o vacation days, too.
