Random Stinky Tuedsay Thoughts...

Yuck.  I have a cold.  Today's random is brought to you not only by Keely (the illustrious Un Mom of recent NY BlogHer fame) but by Tylenol Cold.  Woo hoo.

->  I think I got this cold from little o.  Which makes me possibly the worst parent ever.  He's had a little cough (much like mine right now) for about a week and a half.  We dragged him through the zoo, and other illustrious places.  Sent him to school all last week.  And if he feels even half as bad as I do?  Poor little o.

->  Have you noticed that when you're about to do something stupid, and you realize it a second before you do, you are powerless to stop it?  This morning I went to put on some face cream.  Right before the hand reached the face, I could smell the familiar scent of hair gel.  And yet, I didn't stop the hand.  Ewww.  Wash, rinse, repeat.  Though, if the hair gel had SPF in it, I might not have bothered.  I feel that yucky.

->  Based on the overwhelming response to my latest Facebook status, I think I've found my next great invention.  I'm going to design a washing machine a "Gross little boy" setting!  No more pre-treating, no more checking pockets, no more holding items at arms length and just hoping they get clean.  A little OxyClean and the "Gross little boy" setting and you're good to go.  Works for grown men's clothes, too.

Boys and elephants.  Both are cute, both smell similar on a hot day...

Ok, it's too fuzzy to type any more.  Must go refill the teacup.  Someone pass the hot water bottle.  Sniffle.  Snurp.

Feel Better Soon.

I shall join you in your coughing, sniffling self-pity. *cough, hack* Miserly loves company, and all that.

I once read a blog by a woman with three small boys who said she was tempted to buy one of those things you mount in the shower and sprays it down every day with that "scrubbing bubbles" stuff by touching a button, filling it with body wash and shoving her kids in the shower.

Feel better soon.

I think I caught Little O's cold too! Actually, I got it from my youngest. I knew I should have put HIM in the washing machine and pressed "Gross teenage boy" when he came home from the high school leadership retreat.

Great random!

The summer cold is feeling old
Even when it's new,
It swept right in, and took my grin,
Then went to you.
And while I'm here, sneezing dear, and sipping my hot tea,
That bastard germ, the summer cold.
(I'm sorry. I don't know what came over me there. I usually don't do Frank Sinatra.)

I'd buy that washer.

I have a summer cold right now too. A sinus infection actually. I hope you feel better soon.

Oh and I agree on that washing machine setting all the way!
