No seriously. Who swapped out my tea? Cuz while I am glad I’m not constipated, this is not any better. I’m also starting to wonder if I just have one big mega virus making its way through all my major body systems, seeing that I already had a sinus thing, a long-winded sore throat thing, the pink-eye thing (which I think was viral and not bacterial cuz those drops didn’t seem to do much besides make me gag from them running through my eye sockets into the back of my throat), then had a chest cold (from which Cooper and I are still recuperating), and now this. I was going to ask “what’s next” but thought better of tempting Fate or Divine Providence or the Bad Times Virus.
And to top things off, when this whole thing first started late yesterday afternoon and I was busy managing my lower GI in the ladies room at work, I had not one, but TWO ladies come into the otherwise empty bathroom and select the stall next to me (one right after the other). When there were five other stalls to choose from (total side note, Crazy Lady 1 opted to use the washroom but NOT wash her hands afterwards…I think I know how I got my pink-eye…). I already have an issue with people selecting the stall next to me (or vice versa) when there are several unoccupied stalls available, but when you’re feeling like I was feeling, you need a little space and privacy…well, as much as you can get in a large office bathroom. Plus, I was shocked the smelliness hadn’t scared them away from that stall, although Crazy Lady 2 blew her nose while doing her business, so she might not’ve realized what she was getting into in selecting a stall next to gastro-intestinally distressed woman.
Thankfully the kids seemed to have been spared, for the most part. Cooper was lookin’ a little questionable, but it seems to have resolved itself, and Gavin seems alright, for now. I’m thinking that my kids’ obnoxious obsession with cultured dairy products (code word for “yogurt” amongst the adults in our house) has saved them from cramps, gas, countless bathroom runs, and drinking half a bottle of kaopectate, which has NEVER failed me before…oh wait…it expired 5 months ago…ooops.
Alright…much less of a joking matter: click over to my ongoing online fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Reseach Hospital. I know you’ve seen the ads on TV. I know they made you cry (those sweet bald heads remind me of Becky and her dancing hair and always make me cry). Please help these kids spend another Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Eid ul-Fitr, Yom Kippur, Easter, Summer Solstice, Festivus, or whatever, with their loved ones.
