Sickness, Suckiness and Circles

I was contentedly writing my blog post last night…and hubby comes wandering in. Obviously bored.

“Whatcha’ doin’?” he asked.

“Cleaning the oven. What’s it look like I’m doing?” I sweetly replied, hoping he’d get even more bored and walk away and let me get back to blogging.

“No, seriously. Whatcha’ doin’?”

“I’m blogging. Do you want to hear it so far?”

Why I extended this invitation, I have no idea. I don’t like it when he reads it – ever – because he tends to criticize it. He has this misguided notion that I am a wanna-be Shakespeare or Oscar Wilde. Uh, no, hon. I’m not. I’m a blogger. Period. I write my thoughts and I write them the way I think them. Straight up. Sometimes funny. Sometimes not. But always honest.

So he reads the post I was writing, which had to do with my ongoing ever-present cold, shakes his head, and then says, “No one wants to hear how sick you are.”

“But I AM sick. And I’m a Queen. If the Queen is sick, then everyone should know about it. Besides, a blog is a diary. I write what I know. And I know sick.” Boy, I would have made a great defense attorney – that circular logic would win cases every time. The jury would be like, “Huh?! Okay – she wins. We have no idea what she just said, but it sounded really good.”

Ooops – I digress. Back to the story at hand. Hubby then says, “I think you should write about current events…and your opinions on them.”

I snorted and said, “Current events? I stay out of that – besides, who’d want to read my opinions?”

Hubby said, “Lots of people would! Just try it.”

Fine. So, to make Hubby happy, here are some current events and my opinion:

Economy? I think it sucks.
People who kill other people? I think they suck.
Politics? I think it and the politicians suck.
Football? I think the Chiefs and the coaches suck.
Swine Flu? That would suck.

Oh, looky there – back to medical stuff. And being sick. There’s that circular thingy again. I’m really good at going around in circles. And even though we’re back to being sick, this should make Hubby proud and happy that I blogged about current events. And I am SO posting my “being sick” blog tomorrow.

Your hubby is wrong, we would much rather hear about how sick you are. We have to listen to the news all day, but something real, like complaining about a cold or (in my case) a sore tooth, is oddly refreshing. It reminds us that there are other people in the world....

Instead of "cleaning the oven" my go-to response for such Captain Obvious queries tends to be "mowing the lawn," in part, because I have never, ever mowed a lawn in my life.

But I digress. I must say that I am so glad you caught me up on recent events. I heartily concur with your summation. Plus, having been apprised of the daily news, I can now peruse blogs such as yours without a trace of guilt! :)

This is my first trip to your blog. I found you via NaBloPoMo's blog roll. I will be back to see how your month (and your cold) goes!

Nice to meet you! :)

Thanks, ladies, for visiting me today! I am SO going to relish telling Dear Hubby that he is wrong. :)

Why do I always get a perverse sense of satisfaction in doing that?!!!

You crack me up Sherri!!! And you sound about as 'political' as I am! (and that's on a good day!).

Hope you are feeling better very soon, my friend!
