Drip, drip, drip,
achoo, ah-choo, ah-choo

Ugh, cough, cough
sniff, sniff, sniff

Grass that looks matted, like I feel this morning.
Grass that looks matted, like I feel this morning.

I can give birth without pain killer,
but the common cold has me knocked out.



“Whe-whe-whe- eya-eya-eya- baa-baa-baa-baa- heyga-heyga-heyga-yo ahhhhh,”she yawned, “hi, hi, hi, ey-ey-ey, uh-oh, bu-bu-bu,ye-ye-ye. whe-yaaa-ah-ah. ub, da yeah, oooo mmmmmmmm. da-du, da-du, mmmmmmmmmmmnnnn. yeah, da,be, da, ya da, waaaaah, dow-da. yay, yay, ya, ya, aboo, aboo.”

Adorable, I swear it was a song. Which one? I don’t know, but I’ve got to get up (crawling) and start the day irregardless. double negative? regardless? irrespective? anyway? anywho: when does that one make it into the dictionary.

Any suggestions for curing the common cold?
I’m starting with water, orange juice
a clean handkerchief, or two or four.
Perhaps a bath, then tea, then garlic,
wish I had some ginger. Rehydrate!

I hate calling off work, but
I bet no one wants a dripping art teacher today.
