You will have to excuse me Ė I am guessing I am hardly going to make much sense this entry because of my illiní.
And I donít mean illiní in a Beastie Boys way. I mean it in the sniffling-sneezing-achey-fever kinda way.
Well, at least I donít mean it in a puke-bucket kinda way.
Oh please. Donít call me gross. Do you all remember the puke bucket your mom used to leave by the bed when you were little? Left there in case you had to puke in the middle of the night, but couldnít make it to the bathroom on time?
Man, that was gross stuff, the puke bucket. Ours was this like, pea green plastic thing my mom kept under the kitchen sink. And even when I was feeling in perfect health Ė just a peek at that thing was enough to make me nauseous.
At any rate Ė besides the puke-bucket flashbacks, these last two days brought quite a few memories back. Like, my birthday party in 1996 where I was also illiní and managed to absentmindedly infect all of my friends with some vengeful bug that kept every single one of us in on New Years Eve.
I was like some wicked typhoid New Yearís baby.
Considering I didnít cancel this yearís bash, we may have a NYE repeat that once again leaves me and my friends in our respective homes, toasting with mugs of thera-flu rather than cheap champagne.
Itís too early to tell, really.
But considering I spent the entire day on my bed swimming in and out of consciousness I am thinking itíll be a cozy Rocking New Years Eve at home, just me and Dick Clark.
And then there will be no way to avoid that puke bucket, now will there?
Anyway, if youíll excuse me, I am now in my comfy pjís and new slippers Ė Iíve just finished off another mug of Thera-flu and I feel another pass-out coming on.
Not to sound, you know, pathetic or anything but - my kingdom for someone to tuck me in!
