Out damn spot

I despise sickness. As loves tend to do, Sean passed his marvelous cold over to me this week. I am enveloped in empathy for him because somehow last weekend, when he felt like I do now, he helped my sister and Laura move. Yesterday I drove to C.V.S and thought I might pass out from the lack of energy standing in a two-minute line takes out of you.

On Wednesday night, after I had helped Anthony paint his den all day, this sickness swarmed me and took over my body. I had been fighting it off all week with success, but on Wednesday night I could no longer breathe through my nose. It was one of those sickness that absolutely paralyzed me and I couldn’t find a single cup of strength to move my limbs.

This made for great entertainment. Sanjaya was about to get kicked off of the show and I couldn’t move my head to face the TV. I listened to Martina McBride sing her ditty and slowly forced myself to find the energy to lift my head and reposition it to where I could see Sanjaya’s measly little face when he was told to go the hell away. And it was worth the exhausting effort it took. But as I began to do an inner celebratory dance, my conscience realized that poor annoying Sanjaya is just a kid. He’s little, and he shouldn’t be the cause of everyones’ ridicule. If he just wasn’t SO DAMN ANNOYING.

It’s like that Chicken Little Kevin kid from last season. Dude had a lisp. Don’t expect to win when your song choice is a rendition of Don McLean’s SchTARRY SchTarry Night and you look like a chicken. The elderly only like you because they are going blind and losing their hearing.

Anyhow. I feel a bit better today. Luckily for us, colds don’t last forever and annoying little contestants don’t win American Idol.

  1. OH MY GOSH, I am so with you on the whole Sanjaya/Kevin-Chicken-Little thing!! I’m laughing. I always would SCREAM every week when Chicken would make it through…and I seriously thought Sanjaya was going to go to the end because of all the people voting for him because he was bad.

    And I felt bad about it, because he’s just a boy. A boy!

    I hope you feel better. Being sick just sucks.

  2. At least I can still have faith in the show. If Sanjaya won I would no longer watch.

    Thanks for the well wishes. I’m feeling much better today.
