This Picture? Kinda how I Feel About the Flu


Looks like somebody wants a turn on the Wii. Upon closer inspection of this photo I would say that Girl-Child is totally flipping off Boy-Child#1. Don't you love it when kids give you this kind of gold? This is one to show the grandchildren someday. I can be all, "Hey kids! Wanna hear about the time that your mom gave your uncle the bird?" and they'll be like, "No. Way." And then I'll whip this bastard out.

Murphy's Law moment of the week: Name the sound that woke Tootsie from a dead sleep...

  1. A whistle
  2. Car alarm
  3. Dangerous belch that reverberated throughout the house and when asked by a local reporter to describe what she heard, Tootsie said "I hate to sound cliche but it sounded like a freight train running underneath the foundation of our home"
Not ones to miss out on any fun that is being had while the family is in town for a much awaited visit; fever and vomit have put their rude hats on and invited themselves into our lives and are attempting to thwart merriment. Specifically attacking Boy-Child#2 and Girl-Child. It's like the flu read my blog, got the 411 on my schedule and said, "Dude. We are so there". Note to flu: Go pound sand.


Before the plague was upon us, we went out for ice cream. Except I think Boy-Child#1 heard "math test".


Here is Boy-Child#2 just hours before he lost his nose to leprosy, clearly amped for cold tasty treats. On the right is my 16 year old sister which explains the texting. Even though she genuinely enjoys spending time with her family, in an attempt to appear to her friends like a normal 16 year old, her text message probably read: ZOMG! WAFNGMOOH! srsly.

a friend of mine had e coli a couple of weeks ago and lost 12 pounds. when she told me I was all, couldn't you have called me while you were sick so I could have gotten you to spit in my drink or lick me or something? HOW CAN YOU LOSE TWELVE POUNDS THAT EASILY AND NOT SHARE IT WITH ME???????

Madame Queen said...

The flu?!? OH NO! I took Punkin to the doctor yesterday in a pre-emptive strike against a sinus/ear infection so that it won't ruin our vacation.

I am SO bookmarking that last link. That texting lingo is like some other freaking language!

standing still said...

This is the second vomiting flu filled blog I've read today. Please excuse me while I purell my cable internet connection.

Greta said...

Oh crap! I gotta go disinfect my mouse now ;)

BOSSY said...

So cute!

Marmarbug said...

EWWWW! I do NOT do the flu bug. Have you Lysoled every imaginable space in the house yet?

Anonymous said...

Your language.

Melissa said...

Good luck with the flu bug.

I love looking at kids and adding in my own version of what's really going on. It amuses me to no end.

Stephanie said...

OMG. Hilarious. Except for the flu part!

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

QUIT BREATHING ON ME! Gawd, I don't want y'alls nasty flu germs.

Caution said...

I'm bilingual now thanks to that link !!!

calicobebop said...

Of course! The flu! It's what makes every family event more memorable. You'll be talking about this visit for decades!

Hope everyone feels better soon!

Sue said...

It's not a family gathering until someone pukes! Hope it's gone soon and doesn't spread like wildfire.

barbra said...

Thanks for that translator. I would be lost without it! Wandering around, going, "what is everybody talking about?"

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Feeling your pain. We have the same visitor here.

Groovy Mom said...

What is the purpose of the "Z" before the "OMG"? Just when I think I'm getting a handle on the lingo something comes along and confuses me. lawlz

Undomestic Diva said...

I don't speak "text" but I'm pretty sure that last line was funny. LMFAO.

(Is that right?)

I know my lack of texting puts me in the "Old Hag" category, but being a writer of some sort, I have issues abbreviating. I have a need to write the whole word out which takes me like 45 minutes.

I, too, have a younger sister whose thumbs rapid fire a series of text messages that have to be decoded carefully. Personally, I'd just like to go back to the days when something gibberish-looking was simply solved by those fancy 3D glasses.

I miss the 80s.

Mr. Farklepants said...

Ahhh the "Z" in ZOMFG....

We could go on all day only to realize it doesn't mean anything really. It just makes "OMG" that much funnier... It sorta originates from a common typo, trying to hit the SHIFT key to capitalize "OMFG" but instead hitting the "Z"

So it's just a dumb joke on a common typo, and that's teh whole boring story!

Baby Favorite said...

I'll never forget hearing a comedian say that the best alarm clock they could EVER make is one that sounded like a child starting to vomit. NOTHING gets you awake or out of bed quicker! (Especially if it's IN YOUR OWN BED.)

SO SORRY for the stupid flu. I hope the rest of you stay germ-free!

Jennifer H said...

Stupid flu. It's a rude bastard for sure.

Ann said...

I use Urban Dictionary all the time, totally awesome time sucker, great vocab. booster. Hope you all are on the mend. The flu is just rude.

Karen said...

Boy-Child #1 looks like his mama's clone. Minus the long tresses.

Bonnie said...

I am so sorry about the sickness. I do want to know if you actually know what that text actually said. I sure didn't. Maybe it is because I am old.

Minnesota Matron said...

The most significant thing the Matron took away from this post (because she's not having fun but looking for Significance) is that she does not understand texting and better get busy learning that language. Which would be her FOURTH.

OHmommy said...

So I got my stomach flu from you?

Wha?

I am so sick I blogged about it today. Many thanks girlfriend!

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

I don't know what's wrong with kids today. I think I threw up once(!) when I was 9. That's it. My kids, they're barfing at the drop of a hat.

katydidnot said...

and after you whip this out they'll be all, and want to see where grandma said "bastard" to the whole webernet?

Tricia said...

Doesn't The Flu know that it's summer time? The Flu is not allowed inside once the outside temperature hits 70? It's just wrong, wrong, wrong!

Rebecca said...

Ack! Sorry about the flu! Hope everyone is better soon!

the mama bird diaries said...

Hope everyone heals quickly.

The ice cream truck use to wake my daughter from her nap. It was maddening!

JCK said...

I'm so sorry. Those vomiting bugs are the worst. Hope you and your brother and the many, many others who are there are safe. Perhaps you should be texting each other rather than touching?

JCK said...

Now, wait just a minute, Mr. Farklepants, sir. Are you trying to INDICATE that Mrs. Farklepants, herself, did not indeed type out this post? Please tell me that she is not out for the count with this virus, too??

Mr. Farklepants said...

Nope. I have never had any input into TF's posts. I don't even see them before they are posted online.

Let alone actually write them.

Daalelli said...

Thanks for the clue into the "Z" before the OMG, I was also wondering. Oh and I will totally be bookmarking that link in a hot sec.
