R & R


Ahh vacation…



Lying on my back I am free of all responsibility.
No one asking me to cook for them.
No chores calling me.
No errands to run.
No reports to type.
Little beads of sweat gather on my forehead and am aware of how hot is seems
but someone arrives with a cool drink and I drift off into a dream.
Five days of blissful R & R.

OK, so there are a few differences between the flu and the Caribbean ,
but the similarities are many!
And with a trip to the Caribbean not on the immediate horizon,
I must say, five days in bed with the flu is looking pretty good right now.

Does this mean my life is completely out of control?
Probably.
Will I be lining up for that flu shot?
No sir.
Just stick a little paper umbrella in my cough medicine please.

oh no! i hope you aren't sick, but i also hope you are getting to relax. last year my cousin gave me a flu shot in his kitchen (he's a doctor, and he pull the vaccine from his fridge!) it made me loopy for a few hours. actually i wrote a blog post that night - pretty funny. love reading what you have to say...keep it coming.

Lovely!

It's all in how you look at it.

Another reason not to get a flu shot!

Feel better!
