I am sick, so I'm interrupting my regularly scheduled posts for this list. Why? Because I'm on a serious amount of NyQuil and it sounded like a good idea at the time.
10 Things I Learned This Week---Thanks To H1N1 aka Swine Flu
1 - The sinuses are a great and under-utilized storage space. Seriously, the amount of crap I am currently carrying around in my head would easily fill two of what my husband calls my "unnecessarily large" purses.
2 - Lungs, when filled with gunk, don't work as well for other purposes.
3 - Fevers must have been thought up during God's day off. Some under-noticed assistant let the power go to his head and now we all have to pay for it.
4 - When anyone in the family gets sick, Mom gets sick.
5 - Dad locks himself in garage and avoids all contact with everyone until the danger has passed. Thus making him the most intelligent and least liked person in the family.
6 - Sick kids make the best cuddlers.
7 - IF you manage to get your night-time coughing under control, someone else in the family will start coughing loud enough to keep you awake.
8 - My house doesn't contain enough blankets or chicken noodle soup.
9 - The amount of hugs necessary in a given day is inversely proportional to how healthy my kids feel.
10 - Some women have that whole sexy, raspy thing going on when they're sick---I do not. I sound like Kermit---as a bass---it's not pretty.
