I’m going to work from home today to take care of you.
Oh, you shouldn’t. You didn’t get your flu shot and you haven’t been in the office in two weeks.
Im taking loads of stuff so I don’t get it, so don’t worry ok? After you have coughed all over me for two days now I am sure I wont get sick.
A guy with asthma testing prevention by getting into the ring with the flu? That’s like having sex with a hole in your condom. I already lost dad from pneumonia, must we chance it?
Hubby: [sigh] Do you need anything?
Hubby: Call me on my cell
If he had a Bat cape it would have swished
Me: Can I have some hot tea?
Hubby: Not now, but I can get some after a bit….
Me: Can I have some chicken broth? Im hungry. Maybe with my tea? [cough, cough, cough, gag]
Hubby: Oh, yeah. Um, soon…..
Me: Can I have a grilled cheese sandwich for dinner?
Hubby: What, now? You had soup! I can’t right now.
Me: [small voice] sorry
J: Hello Mama
Me: would you make me a grilled cheese sandwich? I’m so hungry….
J: Sure mama. Do you want a drink?
Me: [sob] OK
J: Right there!
And that slightly cold, mildly undercooked grilled cheese was the best I ever had!
