Yeah, so, I’m sick.

I have a cold, and – as usual – I’m acting like a big baby about it. What is it about a runny nose and cough that turns me into a whiny crybaby?

A few years ago, I had breast cancer. I had three surgeries. I spent weeks on the couch recovering from these surgeries. I always tried to handle myself with grace and good humor. But when I have a cold, I’m like “OH MY GOD! I HAVE A COLD! STOP EVERYTHING YOU’RE DOING! YOU HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING FOR ME NOW! GET ME KLEENEX! BRING ME SOUP! AAAACHHHOOOOOO!”

But you know what? That ungrateful Spawn of mine doesn’t care if I’m sick. He’s all, “I’M EIGHT MONTHS OLD! STOP EVERYTHING YOU’RE DOING! YOU HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING FOR ME! CHANGE MY DIAPER! MAKE ME A BOTTLE! WAAAAHHHH!”

That big baby!

[Note: The Spawn might actually care that I’m sick. He looks at me with great concern whenever I sneeze. Also, mighty, mighty good man David is really the one doing all the work on the baby front. I don’t want to infect the little guy.]

I'm a writer/mocker/goober/mother in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, podcast, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Colds are the worst. I turn into a baby when I have them too. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Hey LOOK — I see 2 teeth!
