Tiding You Over

First, no news on the goose. I did talk to my brother's girlfriend and we have several placement options lined up. But then my kid got sick and I blew off work, so the capture will have to wait until at least tomorrow, possibly later. As of Friday, it was alive and munching grass.

Second, isn't it great hopw kids go from vomiting to "Can I have McDonald's for lunch?" in 90 minutes. The answer, by the way, was no.

Third, I went to Starbucks for hot chocolate and a pretentious quote. Fortunatley, they had both. The quote was from a playwright warning me to beware of becoming my own worst fears. The example she gave was if I lashed out violently at someone who had done my grievous harm. That would not only harm that person, but would be a "crime against [my] own imgaination" as well. And I thought, "well, OK, but the other guy really gets his ass kicked right?"

When you throw-up you need protein...as in the fast food kind (perv) so I understand the kid's request.

He's simply preparing for college.

Funny how if you put peppermint schnapps in the hot cocoa, the pretentiousness of the quote doesn't seem so annoying.

Dude, of course you don't give them McD's. This is the shit they need.

Holy shit Syd, that's just wrong! LOL.

It's after midnight and I now want hot chocolate, thanks pal. I didn't even know Starbucks had hot chocolate! I thought they only had coffee and I don't drink that shit, ever.

I suppose for kids, even McDonald’s can be have medicinal uses, as can peppermint schnapps for adults.

You should have started by kicking her ass.

Reminds me of the time I picked up Jake at school way back in 2nd or 3rd grade. I had to leave work early because he was just so sick. He looked like death when I went into the office to get him. It was like watching Kaiser Sose at the end of the movie. With each step we took away from the school he walked faster and faster until he was miraculously cured by the time we got to the car.

Can we stop and get El Pollo Loco?

No. You're going home and laying in bed for the entire rest of the day since you're so sick.

I feel better.

Well, we better play it safe.

I didn't get called back to school too often after that.

Syd, that is so revolting. I could feel my intestines spasm and die at the very sight of it. So I'm sending it to everyone I know. Thanks!

So what is your worst fear that you might become? An injuried imaginary Goose that someone may come along and "put down"?

You know, roast goose for Thanksgiving would work out very well. Nice and crispy and tasty.

PG, nice save on the protein comment.

Eclectic, or you could just go straight to the schnapps and never read the comment in the first place.

Syd, that might be the most disgusting thing I've ever seen. The gun at the end is brilliant.

Tysgirl, they do indeed have hot chocolate. pretty good too. Not as sweet as DD.

Nick, in a pinch, the schnapps will knock the kids cold too.

Rat, if only I could find her.

Loops, it is great in a disgusting, vomit-inducing way isn't it?

Lou, actually, my worst fear would be if Starbucks started putting up some of my quotes from this blog.

Maggie, you do darling.

Joe, I dunno, this fellow looks a little gamey. Price is right though.

I don't have any of those...what are they called? Children? So I've never seen that first hand.
As for the quote?
I wonder why they thought that putting obnoxious sayings on a throw away cup would be a good idea.

My kid did something similar yesterday. She just got done telling me that she had diarrhea and then the next second asked for a piece of chocolate cake?????

??????

WTF.

I don't know if I could deal with a wounded goose & a vomity child all at the same time. I'd want to kick someone's ass, too.

You are my HERO!!!

9 out of 10 doctor's recommend McD's after a stomach virus.
That's a direct quote from my 12 year old son.

My answer would have been the same. We're bad parents.

Again, our thoughts would be the same. It's all about the other guy really getting his ass kicked. Seriously, I can stop kicking my own ass when I'm ready.
