Keepin’ it real

by Janie Jones

Lest you all think my euphoria buoyed me up and I floated away on a cloud of warm fuzzy happiness, I am actually keeping things in the proper check around here according to Murphy’s Law.

The first two day “weekend” I’ve had sans homework or other obligation in 17 weeks was ruined by the lovely head cold my daughter decided to give me.  I have felt extremely miserable for the last 36+ hours.  I am exceedingly thankful however, that the gods of the plague saw fit to wait until this semester was over to bless me with their bounty of snot, aches and pains.  And yet, I have to wish it could have not happened on the first two consecutive days of freedom.

Oh well, like I said, I’m keepin’ it real I guess.  If it weren’t for some misery, how would we know when we were happy?
