So Close…


Working with children is not for the faint of heart.

Although kids are cute and they’re our future, yadda yadda yadda; they’re disease-ridden little people who sneeze and cough without covering their noses.  Shudder!

I get something every year–bronchitis, laryngitis, H1N1, pink eye, whooping cough…

It’s like a grab bag of misery–I never know what I’m going to get…

But this year was different!  I made it through the sick months (November to February) without catching anything!

I did a little happy dance and gave my immune system a virtual pat on the back.

Then I woke up one morning and my throat felt like I’d swallowed a couple of steak knives.

Yep–it’s strep throat…in April.

I came so close this year.
