Snug as a bug with a bug


Only a few days ago, he was green with envy at seeing his siblings prevented from going to school with the vomiting bug.
Now he is green… with the vomiting bug.

The expression that we tried to teach him today: be careful what you wish for .

Still, when I asked him what was the best, between being in great health at school or sick at home, he picked the latter without hesitation.

A morning of watching Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is well worth the stomach cramps and vomiting green bile.

The program for tomorrow is quite exciting too: diarrhoea and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

I’ll have to remind him to write his thank you cards: to Finn who passed it to him, to Mimi who passed it to Finn, to Martha who passed it to Mimi, and to Auntie Phlegmina who passed it to Martha.
That’s as far back as we could go back in the bacterial family tree.
I am designing a family crest of a crossed plunger and gall bladder on a vomit-encrusted duvet background
