"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

invasion of the snot monster

Ugh. I’m sick. I’m not sure if I have a head cold or if I’m the victim of a full on enemy invasion, of the bodily kind. It’s hit me harder than a $2 bottle of wine. My nose is stuffy. My throat hurts. My eyes are watering. And every time I sneeze I have to prepare myself in the event I pee my pants (a very real concern with a few strong sneezes). In short, I feel like death…lightly warmed over.

Oh, no worries, it’s not really life threatening. But it’s bad enough that I’m skipping my Halloween party tonight. And I love dressing up for Halloween. 

All I want is a bowl of chicken noodle soup and a chocolate malt. Oh, and my mommy with some cold medicine and a big glass of cold orange juice. Is that really too much to ask for?

Maybe I should just send out for that bottle of wine and hunker down for the weekend. It seriously couldn’t hurt.

Until the next time…I’ll be in bed with a box of tissues and a fuzzy blanket.
