Tidbit Thursday or Fantasy Friday, You Choose

Is is Friday yet where you are? It must be somewhere, or it’s close. Here it’s just run of the mill Thursday. Here’s my lovely day, in a nutshell:

Have you ever poured yourself three cups of coffee? I mean, not all at once, but by accident. I guess you really needed that cup of coffee, huh? What to do? I have a solution for you. You should just drink them all, and drink them quick. Cold coffee isn’t any good. It’s not like iced coffee, which is a different beverage all together. Or, a Frappuccinoยฎ, again a different beverage.

It was that kind of morning today, followed by my son telling me he was too sick to go to school. I didn’t believe him. I thought maybe he just wanted to stay home. I had things to do, to get done, things I’ve been putting off…so anyway, a few hours later, he throws up. Now, I just felt terrible for doubting him and for being selfish. I told him so, and asked what kind of grade this slacker mom was getting. He gave me a B+, which was far too generous. I watched him play a video game, and was immediately bumped up to an A-.

My car, while it is running and seemingly okay, does have a faulty gas gauge which means I must now guess at how many miles I get to the gallon. How long can I go on like this…guessing and hoping I don’t run out of gas? I’m not good at guessing. Since I’ve been keeping track on the mileage dial, I realize the miles add up in a hurry. I should get it checked out. This, and the fact that the left side of my face is tingling. Maybe too much coffee?

And, now for your entertainment…a photo:

It’s just a lovely couch! Yes, it is. Now get your mind out of the gutter. I don’t put that kind of stuff on my blog.

Really, now….I think someone kind of planned this one.

  1. aww poor little guy really is sick! Hope things get better and get that gauge fixed! It’s probably simple to fix. I knew it was couches all along. really I did. ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. Thanks! It’s true about that couch. It casts a spell on you.

      My son now seems ok. I hope he still feels better in the morning. There’s so many people sick lately, I don’t want him to get more people sick. I still need my flu shot, Carrie!


    1. I know, poor sweetie. It’s no fun being sick. Luckily, it was just a one-shot deal. He seems to be better, so far. Thanks for the A+! I will take it.

      Well, it’s kind of hard to not look at it but one way…it just kind of stares at you, you pervert…hahaha!


    1. It’s just those days when they don’t seem really really sick…there’s been a couple of those lately. I don’t want to be a sucker, and then this happens. Usually, my son is up and going before I am, so when he isn’t I should probably just believe him. Yes, I thought everyone would enjoy the couch!


  2. Hey great couches – where’d you get them? I have drunk three cups of coffee one after the other – big mistake, and spent the afternoon pissing it away too, tachycardia and ectopics galore. I give it a rest now and only drink hot tea. Great post. Tony


    1. I’m sure this couch would look delightful in your living room. I’m not sure about your technical terms, the “tachycardia and ectopics” but galore makes it sound positively bad and awful!! I’ll never give up coffee, at least not in the morning. Thank you, and thanks for stopping by.


  3. I’ve done the coffee thing. I’ve doubted my kid was REALLY sick before too. But, Amy, I must confess I’ve never sat on a couch such as the one featured in this post. What were they thinking when creating this piece of furniture? Oh wait, I think I know.


    1. Oh, Anka! I’ve never sat on such a couch, either. We could sit on this couch and drink coffee! But maybe not three cups one after the other…silly couch. What were they thinking? Oh wait, I think I know now…


  4. Your poor kid. Did you get any better at video games today?

    That couch is certainly an optic delight. Once you look at it once the wrong way, you can never just see it for the couch it really wants to be.


    1. Tania, I’m horrible at video games. Just awful. I can watch ok though and they’re happy when I ask questions!

      Do you think this couch has other aspirations? Hmm…possibly. Maybe it doesn’t like this configuration at all.


  5. I think we’ve all been there! So busy, and trying to get it all done that we can’t let ourselves believe we have a sick child in the midst to slow things down. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope he’s better soon. The couch pic cracked me up!


    1. Exactly, littlemiss. I never want anything to slow me down, but sometimes it’s the best thing to do anyway, isn’t it? He’s still out sick today, but feeling better. I’m glad you got a laugh out of the couch ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Cold coffee can taste like scotch. Ech. Acquired taste means throwing it down your gullet until you’re used to it. I asked my kid to rate Daddy and me on a scale of one to ten. He started me out at a 5.75. Daddy got a bloody 9. We laughed about that all through Thanksgiving vacation. Mark’s mom said if you’re sick enough to stay home, you’re sick enough to not watch TV. Make that a rule and you’ll never doubt their motivations. And selfishness as a parent is encouraged. It actually makes for a less ego centric kid. You’re modeling prioritizing you. And they’ll do it when they grow up too.
    Love Ya’ Amy,


    1. Shalagh, you’re so right…cold scotch. Yucky, basically. That’s funny he only got a 5.75. Those kids know how to keep us on our toes. Of course, there’s nothing like watching TV when you’re sick. Eventually, they actually get bored. Then, I think oh, not so sick…But, you’re right. If they’re really really sick, they wouldn’t want to crawl out of bed. Thanks for your thoughtful comment about modelling. You’re right, Shalagh. You’re so insightful.


  7. I wish someone would put that back together. For the life of me, I cannot find a couch.

    I think my hubby might be getting sick next. I just got over it.


  8. When I was young, it was always my mother that said I was probably okay to go to school, and my dad who said it was probably better to stay home and nip it in the bud. Needless to say, we went to him first, but she usually had the last say. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hear you on the faulty gas gauge thing too. My motorcycle’s gauge is broken so as soon as it drops from full, I know I have to get gas soon.


    1. Mommies always have the last say ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m a little soft, I admit. My kids are good kids though, only slightly manipulative. I guess with a motorcycle it wouldn’t take long at all…not at all. You must have had to get gas everyday. So far so good on this…but I do plan to get it fixed!


      1. As kids we had it figured out that you needed a certain number of symptoms to get a pass to stay home. Some like a headache or bad stomach were a bit weak, but if you were throwing up or had a high fever, those were guaranteed stay-home symptoms. We didn’t lie about them, but sometimes we stretched a few of them a bit. ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. Glad to read in the comments that your son is feeling better.
    If you can, sign up for AAA. They’ll help you get gas if you do run out, and even on cheap trips, their motel discount pays for the membership.

    Also, I’m not sure how we’re the perverts if you’re posting illicit furniture porn.
    Good day, Madam.
    I said good day!!!


    1. EG. We had AAA and let it expire. Drat!! Never again. That’s really stupid of us! Ok…you got me. I had a perverted moment…but it was only a moment! Everyone is allowed at least one moment.
      A good day to you as well…should I call you sir now? It doesn’t feel right at all, El Guapo.


  10. no such thing as too much coffee but there is such a thing as Mom overload. Take care of yourself and the little guy. I always score points for watching the video games.. easy score right? Be well!


  11. I hope your son is feeling much better, B.F… sounds like a whole lot of not fun (well, the video games don’t sound that bad, but… other than that)!
    Speaking of gas gauges… I may or may not know a certain better-half who I might or might not keep reminding she makes me nervous by waiting until her fuel light turns on to gas-up. I might or might not nag her that bulbs burn out, sensors go bad, etc… but… *still worried*.
    Also, I think a Georgia O’Keeffe would look very nice over that couch.


    1. My son is all better now and now needs to complete all his missing homework. Let the fun begin!

      Your better half shouldn’t wait, because poof! Out of the blue these things stop working. It’s so strange. Running out of gas is a good lesson I guess, but I hope that doesn’t happen.

      Georgia O’Keeffe..haha…perfect!! ๐Ÿ™‚


Take it away.
