You know what sucks?

When I was a teenager, we used to play the game "You know what sucks worse?" It went something like this:

PERSON 1:
"You know what sucks?"

"No. What?"

"Getting a flat tire in the parking lot at school."

(people nod their heads in agreement)

PERSON 2:
"You know what sucks WORSE?"

"No. What?"

"Getting a flat tire in the parking lot at school and not being able to run from the cops when they roll up to catch you drinking on school grounds after hours."



And so on.



So, today it is my turn to relive the glory days of that game...

You know what sucks?

Being sick.

You what sucks worse?

Being sick while one of your children is sick.

You know what sucks worse?

Being sick while one child is sick and the other is healthy as a horse and running around like a maniac because he's BORED.

You know what sucks worse?

Being sick while one child is sick, the other is healthy as a horse and running around like a maniac because he's BORED and you live too far away from family for them to help.

You know what sucks WORSE?

Being sick while one child is sick, the other is healthy as a horse and running around like a maniac because he's BORED and you live too far away from family for them to help and having your husband deployed.




You know what sucks worse???

Being the deployed husband and having to listen to your wife complain about being sick while YOU are sick in the desert.



He wins. Dammit.




Pau.
