My leetel frien', the snot monster, has taken up residence in Brian's lungs. We are going to the doctor's today so that he can get better, faster. I think that when he coughed so hard he felt dizzy, it was time. This morning, his cough makes me wince and shudder. Vile virus. This morning he's coughing up colors. That's my breaking point, and obviously his, seeing that he agreed to the doctor with no fussing when I suggested it this morning.
When I go in to work today, I am going in armed with a bottle of disinfectant spray. It will not leave my side, and I am prepared to use it. I work with young mothers who bring their germs to work so they can save their sick days for tending their petri dishes at home. This kindness keeps spreading and I tire of it.
