Fa la la la la! La la la BLAT!

Another poem for the season:

A mighty creature is the germ,
Though smaller than the pachyderm.
His customary dwelling place
Is deep within the human race.
His childish pride he often pleases
By giving people strange diseases.
Do you, my poppet, feel infirm?
You probably contain a germ.

--Ogden Nash

I really hope you, dear reader, are having a far less messy week than I.

Pfft. No luck here. Sorry to hear about yours. :(

Oh, I hope you all get well soon. My son had the stomach flu a few weeks ago and I'm SOOOOO glad the rest of the kids didn't get it. That must have been the first time the domino effect didn't happen in the house. Many of the other families in our church have been less fortunate than ours this month though. May God bless you all and heal you all quickly :)

No domino? That's awesome. Right now, I'm hoping against all hope that the toddler doesn't get it.

Oh, please, please, please don't let the toddler get it ...

Ugh and Ish and AAAAAAAAA! Knee-deep in snot here, with a nighttime cough chorus, but I'll take that over BLAT any day :P Holding out hope for that toddler of yours...
