There's Nothing Worse Than A Big Harry Comin' Atcha.

It's Sunday night at 7:34pm and I know if I don't write this post now, while I have the strength, it won't get writ.

I have just finished watching The Women and I cried.
Because it was sad? No.
Because it was good? No.
But because I feel so truly awful that I cried all the way through the movie.

Food poisoning, I had gotten by just fine without ever meeting up with you.

The Women is just one of 136 movies that I have watched in the past 24 hours thanks to a case of the food poisoning. Or at least we think it's food poisoning (Thanks, WebMD!). But the chills, the body aches (ohhh, the body aches) and the good ol' Texas grip have kept me, shall we say, busy for the past day or so. In fact, it you'll excuse me...

Okay, I'm back.

So Saturday I am listening to Remi tell her favorite Bible Story of the moment, David and Goliath. However, when you watch the story of David and Goliath on Veggie Tales they go by different names - which can lend itself to being somewhat confusing when a three year old tries to relay it. So she's in the back of the car repeating what I believe to be the story of David and Goliath, only with names like Derek and Harry. (Who knows, I don't ask.) And though her retelling of the story was quite cute in itself ...durn it, I have to take a quick bathroom break again...

Okay, I'm back.

...it was the last sentence that summed my weekend up perfectly, "Mom, how would like to look up and see a big Harry?"

Oh, Remi. I think this weekend I did.

A Big Harry? yikes!

Melissa said...

If a squash can make you smile....:)

Did you waltz with potatoes up and down the produce aisle prior to running to the potty?

Sorry to hear you got the pukies.

Hope you're feeling better.

What the heck are Vegie Tales? I've seen a big Harry or two in my time, but Vegie Tales? Nope.

I had food poisoning once and I was miserable. I think at one point I was on the toilet while throwing up in a bucket. I can so totally relate and I am so sorry.

I was in that situation once too Sissy, but didn't have a bucket.

And I was pregnant, and therefore embarrassingly incontinent.

Losing it all, out all three ends.

Sorry. Just that Melissa seems to make me really honest about stuff - too honest.
