I come upon a river of sandpaper and razor blades.
This water is no fun to drink.
Maybe if I lie on my other side, it will get better.
(Not my picture.)
Take note of the hayricks!
The what? Haystacks?
Hayricks! Remember the Hayrick Protocol!
Gather the yellow circles. See how they give you strength? Grab them. Stab them with the fork.
Yes, I guess I do feel better.
Splat! Morning arrives with red and green, but no Christmas. Soon, an entire laundry load of handkerchiefs. This shouldn’t happen to a woman. It is something teenage boys would enjoy – waving their gelatinous banners in arms held high while chasing little sisters around the house to hear them scream.
I raise my arm and stare at it. Crepey,..crepey… When did this happen? I can’t remember, but I keep staring.
Relax. You don’t have to worry. The cigarettes are legal now.
But cigarettes already were legal.
Relax! Don’t you feel better now that they are legal? The trunk of your car is filled with them. You can rest.
Two nights slip by so softly and silently I am not aware of their coming or going. It is bliss.
(Why does she get to cough, but I get yelled at for barking?)
Toby has stopped hiding my slippers and stealing my sandwiches. Now he keeps vigil at the door, waiting to save me from the fever.
I didn’t get the present I wanted. For my birthday, I wanted a masseur to travel in time to this moment to fix my leg cramps. I still hurt; I must not have gotten my wish.
Oh, and don’t forget the local dentist who spent $82,000 on two commercials only to generate a mere $2,400 in business.
Is that true?
Is any of this?
Once again, this post is based on actual events.
I’ve been ill for nearly three weeks, and I am sick and tired (ha ha) of this stupid virus. For the first two weeks, Toby was an ornery little devil who caused a lot of mischief because it was fun. By week three when the fevers started, he sensed something was different. Now he sticks close to me and gets concerned if a coughing fit is too strong. It is really nice to have someone who cares. Geordie just used to yell at me when I got sick. Ha! Such a different fellow!
To visit a dream world that is a lot more fun than the ones where I have been recently, pick up a copy of Dream Our World. Inside, Bitey and Toby visit the Museum of the Imagination. There they envision themselves into the famous works of art and make commentary on each piece without saying a word.
This book is difficult to do justice in its description It really is a sweet and charming book with plenty of humor. Readers from grade school age through folks in their 90s have all enjoyed visiting with the boys.
Dream Our World is available from Amazon.
May I have a large serving of whatever it is that she is smoking?
Just kidding…hope you are getting over your illness and your dog-frightening dreams. Based on your fever visions I recommend copious quantities of alcohol before bedtime and lock Toby in a different room for his safety. Also, don’t watch The Walking Dead before retiring.
I look forward to trying your home remedies!
I really hope you’re feeling better!
Aw, thank you.
Aw. I hope you are completely well soon!
(((HUGS))) and ❤
Toby…please keep taking good care of your mom!
Thank you! Toby has decided I must be feeling a little better. He has started stealing my slippers again.
Cooper is that way with socks. 🙂
Does Toby hide the slipper anywhere interesting or just rearrange them?
Toby prefers a game of chase for his pilfered slippers. Fortunately he isn’t very good at hiding things.
Oh my, dreams are SO odd! Glad that is all past you!!
