Perhaps it is somewhat unwise to say things like ‘For all that is good and holy, just BE SICK for goodness sake.’
It seems we have whooping cough around here. Yes you read that right; whooping Cough. Also known as Pertussis. That is one of those childhood diseases that we got our children immunized for.
Yeah, that worked well.
So back when I made this comment, ’It sounds like every person in my house has consumption, tuberculosis and a two pack a day smoking habit!’ it seems I was not too far off the mark. We have the only 1920’s illness I did not mention. Pertussis.
I do believe when I heard this, the words ‘You’ve got to be joking’ came out of my mouth.
I’m afraid it is no joke.
Shingles, head lice, (don’t ask, it was horrible) broken jaws, asthma attacks and now Whooping Cough.
Also in the last several weeks we’ve replaced a broken hot water heater, a broken dishwasher, fixed cars, had a car accident, replaced a couch and Sir D’s cell phone broke, and Sir D has taken on a new position that has him AWOL from home.
And did I mention my children have Pertussis?
