Performance review – I caught a mouse. Morgan (our chief mouse catching cat) was nowhere in sight. I have made notes for her next performance review. I have to be gentle with criticism since she is the only cat that catches mice here. I don’t want the whole responsibility.
Money for nothing – I had a stupid virus this week. It moved from body part to body part starting with a sore throat. I bought sore throat spray which works for me. It was gone in 24 hours. I used it three times and have an almost full bottle left. Then came the headache and intestinal part followed by sinus congestion. Each stage took 24 hours and was minimally helped by meds we had on hand. Do you buy a box with 24 doses for a short term illness only to have it expire before you get sick again? Argh! I’m always throwing out expired meds.
Cranky town – Did you ever notice how everything bothers you when you don’t feel well. I’m rarely sick so I’m not good at being grateful. People seem more stupid and food doesn’t taste good. Hope this goes away soon! No one can stand to be around me.
Obits — When I’m sick I work on obit headlines for myself. Our local paper doesn’t do them unless you are famous (I’m not) but that doesn’t stop me. I can get very dark when I’m sick. Headline: Local woman dies from cruise virus without the cruise. Family seeking free tickets. Or one of my universal favorites: Woman’s last words were “I told you I was sick!”
Under the weather – I wasn’t the only one not feeling well this week. New cat Sasha was feeling punky after a round of vaccines. Either that or she was looking for attention. She certainly got that. No one offered me a ‘niptini.
