Funny Foto Friday: Roots, Rust, and Cats

Have you seen that movie Groundhog Day?  It is the one where Bill Murray relives the same day over and over again.  I am currently living in this hell.  WHY do you ask?  Well, I'm sick.  Again.  SICK AGAIN.  This means that I was sick the week of my son's birthday, on Christmas day, and then I started to get sick on New Years Day.  God forbid the next holiday comes up - I might get the plague.

Of course, my Groundhog Day isn't nearly as fun as Bill Murray's.  Where as he basically got to do whatever he wanted with few consequences, I'm hacking like a smoker and blowing like a crack whore.  (My nose.  Because of all of the crack snorting? What did you think I meant?)

This means that I haven't ran since new years day.  However, I am going to break my own rule and run even though I have a cough.  Do as I say, not as I do. Seriously. I can't wait any longer to get started on my Boston Marathon training.  But, I am going to do a few things to try to avoid getting sick in the future:

  • More sleep. 6 hours isn't enough. Period
  • Less doornob licking.  In fact, less nob licking all together
  • No touching of my face. I've developed a habit of touching my face when I'm in deep thought. Websites say that is bad.
  • 25% reduction in walking around my house naked.  It can't be totally sanitary, right?

So, that is my plan.  I'll keep you posted if it works!


This week's funny foto friday is a bit of a hodge podge.  Enjoy!

 This also goes for road runners and those damn sidewalks that are pushed up from tree roots!

Uhhh, I can't think that this is good for the chain, right?

Finally cats.  Cats on the internet are always funny.  Right?  Happy Friday!

Finally, in addition to the normal hilarity, I'm going to try to start including a picture of my son each Friday.  You know, because what are blogs for if not talking about poop and posting pictures of your kids?  Honestly, that is the entire reason I have a blog (the pooping).

When dad isn't feeling 100%, that means my son gets some (50% water) apple juice from Sonic.  We're still learning that you don't have to tip the cup upside down with a straw.  Happy Friday!

This is uncannily similar to my new years resolution list... nah just kidding! I laughed SO hard reading that though.

However, nob licking is certainly bad for your throat so I encourage you to stop that whilst ill.

whew. i thought i was the only one who walked around my place nekkid.
and yes, stop licking nobs. (crack-head!)

Let's see: 25% divided by 20 hours of nudity. That's down to 15 hours of frank and beans per day. I think you're moving in the wrong direction towards illness prevention.

I hope you feel better soon!

Have you gotten a good round of antibiotics? The flu has been a hot mess in my area.

I read this with my fingers on my mouth. Oops.

Isnt it amazing how many food service people know to water down the apple juice? I never heard of it until I had a sugar addict son. Feel better!

My hand was on my chin while reading this.

And it just so happens that there is no better place to read a blog than on the pot.

I played the Pennsylvania Polka in community band this summer. I had the song in my head for the next 2 weeks and my husband kept reciting scenes from the movie to further drive me crazy.

Redhead Running said...

I totally touch my face while deep in thought too and my coworkers always make fun of me.

Perhaps add a tablespoon of Manuka Honey (straight up; a bit sweet but hey, it'll be over quickly) to that list of yours.

Are they cup holders in your son's car seat? When my kids were little we just used to tape the cups to their hands with electrical tape. Kids these days are so spoiled.

Martin Luther King Day is right around the corner. What's the over/under on you being sick?

Liz Hall said...

Posting pictures of the kids is the best part. Hope you feel better. :)

Mari said...!! Feel better. Totally cute kid :)

Love the pics! Good luck kicking that cough! I like the basics - breathing over a pot of steamy, salt water.
