What Happens At Home Doesn’t Always Stay At Home
As most of you know, I caught a cold the day after Halloween. Although I feel better enough to resume my normal lifestyle, I still have a terrible cough caused by congestion. When I’m at home, I sound like I’m coughing up a lung or something.
However, when I’m out I refuse to cough like that. I know I’m strange but it just doesn’t seem lady-like, you know? In fact, yesterday I had a hair appointment that lasted 2 hours. I never coughed once even though I was dying to.
After my hair appointment, I picked up Girlie Girl and we went to the store. While there I ran into a friend of mine from work. She was on the crew that I called in sick for so she asked how I was doing. I told her that I’m feeling much better and should be back to work for my next trip. Of course, Girlie Girl had to put her two cents in. She said, “Mommy is still sick. She coughs like this . . .” which at that point she started imitating the way I cough at home complete with realistic sound effects. My friend couldn’t stop laughing and I wanted to die of embarrassment!
I think I need to talk to her about being discreet! Who knows what else she’s been telling people! *shudder*
FYI: I plan to host a Christmas Ornament Swap towards the end of this month so stay tuned! Or to make it easier, just subscribe to my feed reader in the sidebar!
