So the good news is the pain I had last week in my throat has abated considerablly, the bad news is I have mono. Doctor says I’ll be fatigued for about a month. I’m already tired, but now above the motherhood reason. So I wanted to blog, but I need to go to bed. So, thus Lyogging is born. Lying down and blogging.
So, Mono is passed through saliva, kissing, sharing utensils, cups, etc. Here is where I think I got it… I was slaving away at the school fundraiser, auction, hoopla. I find it kind of miserable. There was almost no food and I had to do the live auction portion where no one was listening to me so I shamed friends from the stage into listening, “Phyllis, Phyllis I see you!” It wasn’t really their fault as it was bad acoustics, but I was going to hell and taking everyone with me. So, I was thirsty and traumatized. A couple of times I grabbed some bottles of water and I was pretty sure they were not MY waters, but I was wiped. So, it could have happened there. Or maybe some barista was mad I didn’t throw a dollar in karma jar and spit in my coffee, who knows? ( there is no instant karma and the suggestion that my good fortune is being held hostage by a pierced twenty something who majored in philosophy annoys me)
Last week I was in deep throat pain. ( Wait, that didn’t sound right.) I missed out on the “Chef” film screening we were invited to. Mark liked it.
I’m not totally incapacitated. I will rally for things I have to. For instance, my cousin’s son wedding. I’ll throw on some lipstick for that one. As I was trolling their registry it reminded me of the vid I did about wedding china. Which I think is funny, but dang worth it, for that little Rex! One of the hardest things about Mono is holding back kissing these little cuties!
Sadly, I doubt many caught in the California fires had a chance to grab their china. It’s really global warming exhibit A right now. I grew up here and IT”S NEVER been this hot in May. In fact our June gloom usually starts in May. It’s Flipping Scary. Other than turning off lights I’m a little stymied as how I can help our world not become a permanent inferno. Then king dumbass Marco Rubio said he doesn’t “believe” that humans contribute to global warming. Science isn’t a belief, junior. He also said he is ready to be president. He can’t mean our country, he must mean Florida Kiwanis. If they’ll have him.
Oh, geez, that guy is a Senator? Too sad. I better go back to bed.. back to lyogging
