The ColdBug From Hell....

I don't know which one of us brought the damn thing home but both of us were sick with the ColdBug from Hell!
Roy took all week off.
It must be nice to be retired!
I toughed it out and made it until Wednesday before I totally crashed!
I had the roughest night Wednesday into Thursday...which was my day off.....such a waste of a day off....but I cat napped all night long, up and down, tossin' and turnin'. So I moved to the couch and propped myself up so I could breathe and hopefully sleep.
I had a cat sleeping by my head.
I had a cat sharing my pillow.
I had a cat sleeping on my hip.
I had a cat sleeping at my feet.
Maybe it was some sort of cat magic to ward off evil spirits....or I was the only warm thing in the house!
I swear I heard, "Gentlemen, Start your engines!" at 5:30!!!
And the Flag dropped.......CatNascar started!!
Have you ever heard 5 cats running thru the house at top speed??
With a pounding headache, it is whole lot like a herd of buffaloes!!!!
And I was in the middle of the race track!!
Around 8Am I gave up and showered and waited for Roy to get movin'.
And when he did he announced that he was going to do 2 things and that I would never guess.
I didn't try....I just called the tune!
"Well Let me tell you EXACTLY what you are going to do! You are takin' me to get my Driver License. And then you are going to WalMart for drugs and Orange Juice! If you have any other plans other than that, Amend them!!"

OH!!!! MY!!!!!!!!! GAWD!!!!!!!
There is a sign at the Tag office that says "If you look like your DL photo you are too sick to drive."
My photo looks like I was thrown under a bus and drug for 6 miles!!!!
Oh I know you say, "Why didn't you wait until you felt better?"
I was already driving around with an expired one....for about 5 weeks!!!!!!
And with Roy saying vile, cruel, and mean things like RETESTING and DRIVER'S TEST....I couldn't put it off.....Hell I barely got it the first time!!
I had to take the written twice to get my Motorcycle endorsement!!
He mentioned that if I would behave, I could go down on my lunch break and get it at the local office.
Sometimes I wonder what he is thinkin'!
I have not set one foot in THAT office in 5 years!!!
And I am not about to start now!
Those Buckin' Fitches!!!!
"When you get stopped it won't be good!" Meaning a traffic stop!!
"I won't get stopped and I think I can manage to go one week until I can get it done!"
And in that one week The ColdBug From Hell came to visit!!!
I am feeling way better...thanks for all the well wishes!!
So it is back to the coal mines....eating couchdrops like they were candy!!

Free to a bad home.
One well used cold bug. Mean people inquiries only!
