I was feeling invincible. Sure I had battled a constant nagging sickness for three weeks. It was something that felt like I was sure to live with for at least a dozen years. I had resigned myself to get used to the feeling of being slightly under the weather. When you never get enough rest and are exposed to an insane number of germs, this is to be taken for granted.
Then a new bug emerged. First Buttercup got this awful strain of yuck. Then Colin. Little did I know that Strawberry was starting to fall ill. After a particularly long day, I crashed next to her and was awoken by projectile vomit Into. My. Mouth. I will be using this episode for the next fifteen years. No you cannot go to the movies with Isabella because you puked in my mouth. No you cannot go on the school ski trip because you puked in my mouth. No you cannot have those new designer jeans because you puked in my mouth.
Three days after this horrific experience I still was feeling like I might escape this nasty bug. Not so. I'm down for the count. Yesterday I couldn't even sit up. I couldn't imagine sleeping any longer so today I decided to give it a go but I hurt. Everywhere. I will be toasting good health this season with zealous vitality.
