I think it’s the plagueWoman in the Middle | October 9, 2013
I think I have the plague, folks. At least that is what it feels like. I haven’t had this bad of a cold, flu, whatever it is, in a very long time. Even Hubby mentioned last night that I haven’t coughed like this in a long time. Oh goody. So I will be taking another day off work and I think I ought to get my family a hotel room just so they don’t have to be around my germs. I think Hubby was relieved to be going to work this morning. Anything to get out of the plague house.
The best part is how the drugs and the fever play with your mind. Last night I couldn’t figure out why the episode of Castle we were watching (via TiVo) was going to go nine minutes long. After a very long minute I was able to remember that an hour is 60 minutes long and something that is 59 minutes long is actually one minute shorter than an hour, not nine minutes longer than an hour. Eldest Daughter was about to put me in a home after that one, I think…. After all, when someone my age can’t remember how long an hour is, they probably shouldn’t be left alone…
Here is hoping that your household has escaped whatever fall plague this is.
