Here’s my handsome Old Guy. I thought I’d post a photo of him for Dickiebo who did not like the ‘sourpuss’ mare photo from my last post.
I was lying in bed succumbing to the awful stomach virus. My bedroom door was open. For some reason sounds carry from the living room into my bedroom fairly louder than in any other room in the house. It was quiet except for the TV. Despite my fever and delirium, I overheard a conversation between Bubba and Wee One. Bubba was sitting with Wee One watching a Sponge Bob movie because Wee One was still sick with the stomach bug, possibly needing help in the bathroom.
Bubba, “are you picking your nose?”
Wee One, “yep”
Bubba, “ew. That is nasty stop.”
A few minutes later. Bubba, “are you eating your boogers?”
Bubba, “no wonder your belly hurts. Eating boogers will give you worms. You’ll have to go to the hospital and the doctor will cut your belly open to get the worms out.”
Wee One, “I don’t want the doctor to cut my belly open.”
Bubba, “then you’ll have to stop eating boogers.”
Wee One is very quiet. I imagine him thinking over this new information. A few minutes later he comes into my bedroom.
Wee says, “mama, am I gonna get worms in my belly for eating boogers?”
In my sick and weakened state, I answered, “uhuh.”
It looks like Bubba’s strategy has worked. Wee One has stopped eating his boogers.
I purchased this wicker basket because it was half price. I wanted to store my magazines in it next to the couch but Marvin seems to think it is his personal bed. I put about 5 magazines in there and went to get the rest of the stack when Marv flopped his fat rear inside the basket.
When Hubs came home from work I complained about Marvin taking over the new basket.
Hubs said, “look at that Cosmo cover, can ya blame him?“
My answer, “Marvin is neutered, he should not need any sex tips OR care about cleavage.”
I knew I should have bought two baskets, especially at that low price.
I am on the mend. Wee One is not getting over it as quickly. We both are congested with coughs now, we were just fine until we caught that stoopid stomach bug.
I kept Wee One home from school yesterday and today. I am contemplating taking him to the doctor. I know they’ll probably just give him more antibiotics. Which in my opinion, he has had enough of in his 4 years. Im holding out until noon and see if he starts acting more like his normal self.
Yesterday was Bubba’s 14th b-day. I sprung him from school at lunchtime and took him to SubWay to eat. Yesterday was also Wrestling Homecoming so he was out until 9:45 pm. Hubs went and watched his duel. Bubba was beat by 2 points. We are doing cake and ice cream this weekend sometime after the big tournament that starts Friday morning and goes until Saturday evening.
If you have ever doubted that Tom Cruise is a serious nut job, have a look at this quote, then go to the link and watch the video if it is still available. He’s blabbing about his Scientology stuff again.
In the video, Cruise says that “it’s a privilege to call yourself a Scientologist, and it’s something that you have to earn. Because a Scientologist does, he or she has the ability to create new and better realities and improve conditions.”Cruise goes on to say that the religion is all about helping others,”being a Scientologist, when you drive past an accident, it’s not like anyone else. As you drive past you know you have to do something about it because you know you’re the only one that can really help.””We are the authorities on getting people off drugs,” says Cruise. “We are the authorities on the mind. We are the authorities on improving conditions. We can rehabilitate criminals … we can bring peace and unite cultures. Once you know these tools and you know that they work, it’s not good enough that I’m just doing okay.”Cruise also lets out a hearty laugh talking about suppressive persons (or anti-social persons), which are referred to by Scientologists as SPs. He recalls a member of the church asking him “So have you met an SP?” After gathering himself from chuckling, Cruise says “I looked at them and I thought, what a beautiful thing because maybe one day it will be like that. SPs, you’ll read about them in the history books.”
Cruise and his religion is the
authority on whhhhatttt???
I’ll eat crow if Scientology brings World Peace in my generation. And, I’ll smile the whole time I am chowing down.
