Yeah, it did cross my mind that that little nugget would have been helpful to know yesterday when we were living my worst nightmare.
Anyway, we dropped everything and marched in there, in full glory. That consisted of my unshowered, unshaved, undeordized and puked on, pajamaed ass carrying a Rubbermaid. Lizzy was in Disney princess pajamas and the baby was delirious in only a diaper.
I don't know if I mentioned this but where we live, in South Johnson County, it's the most stuck-up, prudish, money-centered, my husband makes more than your husband, place I've ever lived.
You guys know that's just not me.
I tell you that, to tell you this: Those bitches parted like the Red Sea when we walked in that doctor's office. Our dirty contaminated asses were sniffed out as soon as we hit the door handle and my God, the look of horror on those women's faces were priceless. A few even got up and moved out of our way so they didn't get a sent of our disease. One dove in her purse for hand sanitizer and damn near bathed her kids in it.
Call me Moses.
After all that, we were seen and both girls tested positive for the flu. My first comment was, "WTF? We had flu shots and wait, why was Lizzy not tested yesterday when we were here?"
Suffice it to say I've bleached the hell out of the house and have never really put the Clorox down. I knew it was all over when I saw Gracie eating lunch out of the same bowl as Lizzy and later there was a direct sneeze in her face. For the curious, direct inoculation like that has about a twenty hour incubation period.
At that point, all the bleach in the world wasn't going to help my cause.
Let's just say Tamiful is my new BFF, we practically have a "X" on our door and I'll not put the bleach down till we're all over The Sick in this house.
I don't care if my hands have been reduced to bloody stumps. I don't want to see Alex sick with this. And the world will stop spinning on its axis if He Who shall Not Be Named got it. I cannot let that happen. For my sanity, it cannot happen.
I'll dip them both in bleach nightly if I have to because they have to stay healthy.
Now can someone be a good neighbor and get me some more bleach? My stash is running low.
I know beggars can't be choosers but I really like the Fresh Meadow scent Clorox has on the market right now.
