The Brat and the Bean are painting and I am busy working at me desk. Every ten minutes or so I get a call from the Bean – Mama, change the water. It’s a duty I’ve undertaken because I can’t have them spilling water on the damn wooden flooring.
And then suddenly I happen to overhear a snatch of conversation between them.
Brat – Beanie, the water is dirty again.
Bean – Okay, I’ll just do my magic again. Abracadabra. Mama! Come and change the water.
Damnit, but I’ve spawned a wily woman.
Health Update: Cousin K has turned around and is making a recovery. Me – I’m down with the flu (suspected swine flu) and have been pretty much bed ridden for the last 3 days. Can’t eat, drink, breathe, anything. My cup really runneth over. Family is making rude jokes to the effect of me being safe because swine can’t get swine flu.
Edited to add: Most of my posts are written well in advance and scheduled. For those who are worrying, this is not a recent event. I have been too sick to do anything in the last week or so.
