I'm taking a sick day today. Can you do that from a blog? Good thing Frank doesn't have to work today. Nothing serious, just a bad cold and general yuckiness. Maybe it came from this incident at preschool last week. Keep in mind I probably said more than half of this in Spanish, but I don't have the patience to figure out how to do accent marks and upside-down exclamation points on a Mac today, and I'm not writing in Spanish incorrectly because that bugs me.
Beth: Stand up, please! Let's sing "Pulgarcito!" Everyone ready? One, two, three....
AHHHHH! (I see third kid down in the circle has more snot hanging out of his nose than I ever thought possible.)
Beth: Um, I think you need a tissue.
Kid: I don't know where they aaaaarrrrrrre! (super whiny.)
Beth: (Thinking...WHY didn't his mom keep him home today?) I'll get it. Here. (Wipes nose of kid. Gets a little bit on her finger because the volume of snot is more than the generic one-ply tissue can handle. Stomach turns a little and thinks...I hope I don't catch whatever it is he has.)
Beth: Okay, let's sing! (Makes a mental note to find anti-bacterial gel as soon as class is over, but alas, the damage has been done.)
At least it's better than the stomach flu I got last year. I won't describe that for you. You're welcome.
