Weekend Winks – Football ‘n’ Flu

Funny how one minute we can be knocking back shots and the next be laid flat-out on the bathroom floor.


From this….

2.5 seconds flat. Not the four seasons but it will do.

…to this in 2.5 seconds flat.

It all started on a happy note Saturday.

With my Iowa Hawkeyes off on a bye week, I was headed to a tailgate for the Ole Miss vs. Alabama game. The hostess, Lady, is a Mississippi chick through and through and requested that I cheer on her team. But come to find out, I don’t own any navy (the horror reversecommuter!) so I concocted my own anti-Alabama attire with the help of some duct tape (which I’m sure assisted Ole Miss with their victory).

Classy dressing at its finest.

As all of my friends are crazy about procreating, the tailgate was toddler friendly with much of the halftime show featuring free-flowing tears.

Tailgating with toddlers

Who needs a marching band when you have this for entertainment?

Feeling left out (and guilty) because I left my two-year-old feline at home (anybody know where I can get a cat papoose?), I scooped up a kid to feel included.

Even rented a baby.

Rent-a-baby looks natural on me, yes?

But all of the fun and games came to a crashing halt with the sudden regurgitation of everything I’d consumed over the weekend. First thinking it was food poisoning but quickly resigning to the fact that it was the stomach flu as I camped out on the bathroom floor overnight to alleviate my body from over exerting itself in the mad dash from my bed the toilet every 45 minutes.

Not the four seasons but it will do.

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, I texted my buddy Camo to see if he had any anti-nausea medicine he could drop off the following day. Not only did he have quick dissolving tablets to trick my body into absorption (instead of the expulsion it was doing to everything else I tried), he delivered it at 4am along with some hydrating fluids.

Unable to watch TV due to pulsating eyelids, I kept up on highlights of a family wedding I was missing out on in Iowa.

Wedding shenanigns and photo bombs.

When it came time to the caretaking, I’m sure you all know who was the first in line for snuggle duty.

Ted cold shouldering New Cat out of nursing duties.

Mr. Bear cold shouldering New Cat out of nursing responsibilities.

Even with all of the cat cuddles, my stomach still hated my guts. But my gal pal G (the one who fights 80-year-olds) left a sweet surprise outside of my door after she picked up a prescription for me.

My friends kick ass.

My friends kick ass.

And while still on the mend, I’m pretty sure my most demanding pussy will insist I stay home sick every day.


Mother lover.

Here’s hoping your week has been and remains healthier than mine!

  1. At least you have a soft pussy to cuddle next to while sick. πŸ˜‰

    Feel better soon. The flu sucks!

    Flu’ bad. Cat cuddles good! Get lots of those cuddles, and feel better soon. Like the duct tape decoration, and my, are those new jeans? πŸ™‚

    I hope you’re feeling back to normal now. Gastroenteritis is not fun especially when there’s footy to watch.

    • No fun indeed, Gary! I am on the way back to feeling like my old self…just in time for more footy this weekend!

      • Gary Lum says:

        Excellent. Our footy season ended last weekend. The two teams I dislike the most made the grand final. In the end the team I dislike the most won. Still it was a footy game and it was a good game to watch. Spring is here and then Summer so it’s time to get into other sports.

      • Don’t you hate it when the teams you despise go the farthest? I know I do! But like you said, it’s at least footy and a good game to watch. Enjoy your Spring as our Fall turns to Winter….

    Hope you’re feeling better, girl! You have some awesome friends, that’s for sure. And no navy? It’s my favorite color – I can totally lend you some :).

    • I guess I always go for black instead of navy…although I live in jeans. Hmmm – good to know you have plenty of navy for me and I have plenty of bourbon for you! My friends really rock, that’s for freaking sure!

  6. You have such great friends in your life. Hope you’re feeling better and having a fabulous week :).

    At least there wasn’t a Hawkeyes game for the stomach bug to ruin, CBXB! Bye week for Iowa, bye-bye week for whatever you ate at the anti-Bama go Ole Miss game.

    By the way, chugging Pepto Bismol ain’t a half-bad cure in my book.

    I hope you’re feeling better. Yay Camo for a 4 a.m. delivery of the liquids. Yay Teddy for pussy love.

  8. girl i have been M.I.A. and come back to see you sick?! boo! hope you are feeling better and get to cuddle with that pussy for a few more days of down time!!! πŸ™‚ sending good vibes your way

  9. Are you feeling any better yet? Glad you had your fur balls for comfort.

  10. JMC813 says:

    So sorry to hear how sick you were CBXB. That sucks cold rocks. Glad you are starting to feel better and I hope you come out of it at 110% like you always are. Now get back to kicking tremendous amounts of ass my friend.

  11. I sure hope you are feeling better! Being sick is a bitch. Nothing like having a jumbo pussy laying on your diaphragm to keep the air intake out.

    • Oh an oversized pussy right on my diaphragm felt divine, especially after he kneaded the hell out of my sore stomach. But all in all, I’m much better due to Ted’s caretaking. Mostly because he forced me to lay down all day long, due to his lack of moving off of my torso. πŸ™‚

    It looks like you’re in good paws. We’ve always liked the idea of having a male nurse hovering over us πŸ˜‰ Feel better soon lucky girl!

    XOXO N&N

    Duct. .. duck? Tape makes a statement! Glad your 80 year old fighting friend (did I say that right? ) left your gifts outside&you didn’t infect her. .. Glad your pussies are also human bug resistant! Get well&i think the moral is avoid Mississippi. And having kids is over rated, much better to be an aunt or uncle πŸ˜‰

  14. SerachShiro says:

    Ooh I’ll hope you feel ok now and what a bad adventurer with that stomach flue ! And-what did you have to do without your lovely friends πŸ™‚ !

Holla at me!
