Hi there. I'm the sick person with whom you have the distinct privilege of sharing an airplane. Nice to meet you.
Somewhere in my brain is the conclusive idea that any illness, whatsoever, perhaps even cancer, can be washed away by simply drinking enough water.
what the parenting books don't tell you
Children carry illness home from daycare like rats carry the plague, but you don't have to give in to it. No, you don't have to give in.
Clearly I mask my intense fear and anxiety with intense anger. Very healthy.
For once, I actually turned off, tuned out, and got quiet.

After the tenth time I triggered my apartment’s smoke detector from a frantic, germ-blasting, Jacuzzi-temperature shower, I knew things had gotten out of control.
I've caught the dreaded death flu, and the only thing standing in the way of my complete mummification is an arsenal of skin-soothing products.
Of course when I'm sick all I care about are beauty products... Have we met?
