Sick

Today I am sick, so I’m off to church to pray for a cure. And also to cough over all those little rodents in the Sunday School who keep giving me their damned stomach bugs. Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord – I shall repay…

Thank God for small mercies – at least it’s not a workday.

I feel for you, Ivan. Teaching kids the Bible while puking vigorously can be a bitch. Consider yourself fortunate, however--at least you don't have to do that in a language that has words like "Zahnpflegeversorgungsansprüche." Can't imagine being able to puke properly in a language like that.

But get well, OK?

Try just fluids and stewed apple. I'm serious. It worked for my kids.
Have you really got bright red hair?

Hi Des - I don't teach them, they just ooze germs at me when I sneak in to pick up my own kids. If I could speak German at them, tho', I would. That would be punishment enough.

Good advice, Pi, but thankfully what I have this time isn't a stomach bug. If it was, I'd have got it from them in the first place and they'd be cheerfully immune by now. No - it's more like flu, so I'm off to bed with a traditional remedy of hot whiskey, lemon and garlic. Shame we're out of lemon and garlic...

Thanks, Ivan. After a weekend spent watching everything I eat come up again, this is just the sort of kick up the backside I need for tomorrow.

If you're buying up cold remedies, may I recommend 'Secrets of Methamphetamine Manufacture' by Uncle Fester? No point swallowing it straight from the packet is there? Although you do need to find the right batteries if you're going for the Nazi method, believe me...

Sounds like it's time to cut back on the all-prosthetics diet, Footie. I warned you that that would catch up with you in the end.

And Rob, I'm sure I have no idea what the Nazi method is, but I've noticed that things named after Nazis are almost never good. So I'll take your word for it without asking for details...
