Kids! Little Disease Vectors!

My kid brought a foul headcold home from school again, so I've been wickedly sick this weekend -- since Thursday night, really.  "Little disease vector," I told her, giving her mean looks, to which she responded, crumpling in guilt, "I'm sorry! I'm sorry!"

It's no fun being mean to your 11-year-old.  They take it too seriously.

Anyway, the kid's BFF's family came through, and hauled the kid and the BFF off to a school-organized event, a day at a waterpark, where they had a deal of fun, and flirted with some boys (what? WHAT? is the kid turning into a girl? apparently), and then today she and mr. delagar have gone off to a movie, and I am going back to bed.

I am sure important things are occurring, but I am a giant feverish ball of snot, so.

Shit. I hate the sharing of germs that inevitably happens when kids are in school. What sucks is that I manage to hold out on getting sick until Thanksgiving or Christmas. The last few years I've been sick as a dog on one (or both) of those holidays. And, dammit, I want to be able to happily gorge myself on pie and peanut butter fudge!

She is flirting? OMG. When did this all happen? You know what this means, right? You will no longer be welcomed around her when she is in public. It's the golden rule. To be cool means you have to leave your parents far far away or at least enough steps back so you don't appear to be a baby.
