Plenty of things in my house are green.
However, my snot should not be.
I'm guessing this is the tail end of a very long bout with the flu, but goodness gracious, I am about done with this business of hacking until I cry.
I know I am all about laying around in bed and sleeping as much as I can, but I am *almost* at the point that I do not want to be in that bed. (I know, people. close your mouths.)
I had gone to the doctor last week when Alex and I were getting ridiculously high fevers. His was 104.4. Poor kid. Anyway, the doctor tested for the flu and then said 'Yep. Sucks to be you. Go home and quit breathing in my office.' The doctor prescribed this stuff called Relenza - which is supposed to shorten the flu. Um. Yeahnotsomuch. The Nyquil stopped working. The cough medicine was like water. The antihistamine was basically candy.
How one body can create so much mucus will forever remain an enigma to me.
On the other hand, I did plenty of TV watching. New episodes of Psych are on. (The bad part about that is that I laugh out loud and then get myself into a hacking fit, but oh well....) I also saw a movie called Namesake. (Y'all remember Harold and Kumar? Kumar stars in this movie.) Really good movie. Watch it next time you're flipping channels. It's about coming to terms with his own identity and all that jazz.
Oh....and i would be remiss without mentioning the fact that as I lay there at around 9 PM one night waiting for......well....anything, Jesse tells me that my friend, Diana is coming over to disinfect the house because she is tired of me being sick because she has nobody to talk to. LOL So. There I am in and out of Nyquil consciousness and I hear her talking and spraying and wiping.......and then I hear "Oooops. Sorry, Jesus."
Now, for somebody who is convinced they are dying, hearing that Jesus has arrived is not a good thing.
and then I fell asleep.
Two days later, I said to her "Okay, I know I was out of it, but did I hear you say 'ooops, sorry, Jesus'?!"
She laughed and said "Ooooohhhhh....yeah. I was spraying bleach and accidentally sprayed your Jesus. Don't think it's an act of mystery if Jesus starts looking a little spotty."
