I'm sick today. I felt fine until about 5:00 p.m. yesterday afternoon and then I just felt really cold. And then feverish. And every part of my body aches, from my tiny toe to my teeth. And my throat hurts. (Is that TMI?)
I tossed and turned all night and around 3 a.m. I thought about my mom. Even though I'm probably well past the age to want my mom when I'm sick I came to the conclusion that I still want my mom to come and take care of me. And bring me a chocolate shake from McDonald's because that would make my throat feel better and that's what she did when I was little. (Yeah, that was all said in a little bit of a whiny voice).
The problem is, of course, that my mom lives in Canada and definitely can't come and take care of me. But it still doesn't stop me from wishing.
Did your mom ever do special stuff for you when you were sick?
