I am still battling with a cold, so I have been using lots and lots of tissues. Victoria, with her NG tube, is also snarfling everywhere. I could really make a career out of sitting around all day and wiping her nose. Or I could just buy stock in Kleenex.
Today as I was hurrying to do the dishes, put hair in pigtails and clean the kitchen floor simultaneously , I felt a huge sneeze coming on. I reached out and grabbed for a tissue and wiped my nose with it. But, oh, the horror! Someone had already used the tissue and had stuck it back in the box! I was totally slimed! I was just like the guy in Ghostbusters. I grabbed for a towel and mopped my face. The towel felt a bit sticky, but that's nothing new around here, so I went on with my exciting life. But Anastasia kept looking at me funny, like she was trying to figure out some complex equation.
"Do you need something?" I finally asked her.
"You have dog hair all over your face. Are you trying to make a disguise?" she asked earnestly.
Upon closer inspection, the towel had been dipped in syrup and rubbed on the dog.
Always keep your eyes wide open at my house and don't ever sneeze.
