the house of sickness

Well, our house is quite germy right now. I have some sort of stomach bug and Charlie has a sinus infection. This we have learned about each other...when I am sick, I want attention and to be nursed a little. When Charlie is sick, he wants to be left alone. He is cranky.

Let me repeat. He is cranky.

And, like a pregnant woman.

The other night when he was coming down with his sinus stuff, he wanted to go to the store, so we went. He decided he wanted Sprite and soft tissues. Ok. We picked up some Nyquil. Ok. We stood there in the store and I asked him if he wanted anything else. No, he said.

Not an hour after we got home he said he wanted cereal. I told him we had Life cereal in the cabinet. He said yuck. Then he pouted and looked pitiful. So I got in the car and went back to the store to pick up Lucky Charms and Captain Crunch.

He was content to eat right out of the box.

My husband has class.
