MADDER than a cut snake right about now!


Well, I'm even madder than that, but I'm doing my level best not to swear.
Which is takin' some serious, serious self-control right about now, I'm telling you!

Y'all remember my friend LeeLouBelle? The one with the questionable dress-sense and some pretty funny ways... but she has a heart of gold?
You know... the one who cherishes me?
Yeah... that one.

Well... she makes me sick.
Literally.
And figuratively.

See, she came around on Easter day, and when I opened the door, she gave me one of her big ol' trademark hugs and a kiss.
And after about 5 minutes, then proceeded to tell me that she's had the flu.... but she's over the worst of it now.
While coughing and sputtering and using a pair of old underpants to blow her nose.

I quickly chased her outside and made her stay there, took a cup of coffee out to her and sat as far away from her as I could.
But then while I went inside to use the toilet, she came in the back door, went to the sink and then proceeded to use MY coffee cup to get a drink of water, while laying her snotty old underpants on the counter top.

And the reason she had used my cup was because it was already dirty... and because she didn't want to waste the disposable Dixie cups I keep near the sink for the kids to use.
#&@*% hell, Lee !!!!

So what did I wake up with this morning?
A runny nose, sore throat, and muscles that feel like they've been beat with a baseball bat.

I hate some people.
I seriously do.

I'm supposed to be getting on that plane to California in less than 24 hours... and I feel like death warmed over this morning.




ARRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!

I'm sorry you're feeling so bad! I really hope you're better by the time to go! But, if not, drug yourself up really good, just so you can get on the plane!

Tatersmama said...

I've been taking everything the chemist (pharmacist) recommended, plus I've been napping, so I don't feel "too" bad right now. Fingers crossed...

Roslyn said...

Prayers going out for speedy healing!

Ladybird World Mother said...

You, my friend, have been in my thoughts ever since my last comment. I SO HOPE that your holiday happens just as you planned and that you have the BEST TIME EVER. If you have a mo... let us know how you are and if that damned flu has gone. xxx

Ok wage war. Get some arnica, a neti pot to wash out your sinuses some Vit c everything you can think of to strengthen your immune system. Then when you calm down educate your friend on germs and the spread of disease. Many people have no idea how long a person can shed viruses. When they find out they are really surprised. So let's just assume she didn't know any better. As for me I am going to pray that you do not get sick. I'm going to Cali too and I might commit murder if someone does that to me!!!

Karen Deborah said...

ps does your girlfriend with the snotty underpants read your blog? tell me it's not true, the underpants...

Homestay Mama said...

As soon as you get to Calif, go buy some Immune Defense--made by the company that makes Emergen-C Comes in a box of 30 individual packets that you put in water and drink. Works wonders for me!

Marjie said...

Un-freakin-believable (or something less polite than that). I just stopped by to see if you'd written, "Dudes and Dudettes! California is totally awesome, and my grandkids are the cutest critters ever to roam the face of the earth!" And I find this. Hope you're doing better now.

OOOOOHHHHHH! That is awful! I hope you are still able to fly! (Maybe it's just a 24 hour thing...)

Hope you get to feeling better before the flight, my friend!

I am WAITING for confirmation that you are on terra firma in California! Did you make the plane? Are you okay? Are you really just a 100 miles or so from me instead of 1,480,687? What happened? How do I get there? Do you still want me? Surface danggit! Whadd're you doin'? Visiting with your son and grandchildren? Well, for Pete's sake!

farmlady said...

I missed this post. I was on vacation. Are you even here in California yet?
I'm so sorry you're sick. I really didn't know before I sent the email. Please let me know where you are.
Phone me or something...

Angie said...

Eeeurgh, apart from being snotty were they clean, the underpants? Whose had they been?

I love hilarious posts almost as much as ones with food in. I came over from Robynn's Ravings. Between you, you've brightened the day no end. Thanks, I'll be back (as th say).

3 days before my pilgrimage to Ireland last year (which I had been planning my whole life), I got laryngytis and a wicked cold...did it stop me? No way man! Sometimes mad mind over matter will cure anything! Have fun...

Ronnica said...

I take it from Robynn's blog that you at least survived your trip to California...hope it wasn't too miserable!

diney said...

Hope you feel better and have a great time.
