Sick as a dog

Yeah, so, Homer is doing great.

He has recovered and adapted pretty quickly considering he had 14 teeth extracted on Wednesday. Animals are pretty amazing like that. I know if I had a bunch of teeth removed I’d be whining like a little bitch. He’s been running around the house like nothing happened. And, he’s loving the soft food diet. He got mashed potatoes Wednesday and Thursday. This morning I scrambled him an egg. Seriously. I cooked for him.


So, yeah, Homer is awesome. Me, on the other hand, not so much.

I woke up Thursday with the worst stomach flu: body aches, nausea, vomiting – you know, the works. It was awful.

Here are a few telltale signs that I’m really, really sick:

1) I bitch about it nonstop.

2) I don’t turn on the TV.

3) My hair gets wild.

Usually, my hair looks like this:


But when I’m sick, it looks like this:


I am feeling much better today. Still not 100 percent, though. I’m sore all over. However, I have eaten without vomiting so I’ve got that going for me. Yeah, I know. You’re welcome for the imagery. Have a good weekend, everyone!

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, 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.

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
