I love that when I get my ass twisted all sideways and knotted up, that I can throw it out there. I can put it out there with my squishy crying face that makes Renee Zellweger look normal, and you guys will just take it. You’ll text me back. You’ll leave a comment. You’ll “like” something.
And the more that I put it out there, the less that I gunnysack it, the less hold it has until suddenly, we’re all laughing at the absurdity and moving on with the day.
I went to sleep with the coughing that hurt my ribs and burned my throat. I used an inhaler and drained the last of the nyquil. (I’ve never actually drained a bottle of nyquil in one sick spell before) and had a small meltdown upon going to sleep. I was thinking of Chris. It comes and goes. For all of us, I’m sure. But last night, it was my turn. I’ll blame a lot of it on the fact that I haven’t had human contact in days and have been hopped up on OTC meds as well and Kikimama has decided to pee on whatever clothing I leave in the floor and I cannot for the life of me get Sammy to refill my damned coffee cup.
But this morning, I was awakened via text messages that told me my friends are in love. Multiple friends. Deserving, absolutely nothing but the best in life, these friends. Happiness abounds! And then I started coughing, and then I picked up my shorts to put on and they had pee on them, and then I kept coughing and started to pee myself, and then I went to make my coffee and it was from the can that we emptied out to put Chris in…
and I lost it.
Just fucking dropped my basket.
But in a nanosecond I had support from my phone coming through, and I’m blaming most of my mood on Sense & Sensibility from yesterday when I get this:
“Jane Austen was a dumb bitch. You cannot tell me otherwise”
I laughed so hard and then sneezed all over my keyboard.
That. Right there.
That’s what I love.
Is it friday? I can never remember if we’re thankful today or if we love today. Cindy keeps me in line with that.
Whatever it is…Love Friday/Thankful Thursday/WTFDAYISIT?…
I hope you laugh today. And if you can do it without sneezing or coughing to the point that a little tee tee comes out?
All the better, my friend! All the better!
