Acute Viral Rhinopharyngitis*, Fun For The Whole Family

(Sorry, I know it's a little small but the right side cut off when I tried making it extra large so you'll have to click for full effect)


(And try to ignore how the background colour doesn't fill all the gaps in the letters, I don't know how to fix that)

*the common cold, though not so common when it's crushing your soul like a candy wrapper

  1. ahhh...sympathies to you guys. Colds are hell and the lingering snot-fest is the worst...nevermind the coughing-so-much-you -strain-your-pelvic-muscles-and-then-wee-yourself-everytime-you-stand-up.

  3. That would make an awesome PowerPoint slide, for an office presentation on why everyone should wash their hands and, oh, not get sick. heehee.

    Fell better soon, my snotty friend :)

  4. I feel for you...and everyone else too. College Girl is fighting it right now. And I think we just about cover her in disinfectant every time she comes back home. So far I have kept it at bay from everyone else.
    BTW, do you cough and then have those mind numbing headaches because you coughed so hard that there was a lasp in blood flow?
    No? Dang I hate that. Those hurt so bad!

  5. When you feel better you need to go out and buy SL something shiny.

    I have a new postcard to send you, if my kids haven't ruined it (yeah, they probably did, because I can't find it.)

  6. Also, is it just me or does Liam look a little maniacal?

  7. I think Soul Crusher should be added to SL's titles, along with Supreme Crusher of Dreams.

  8. Um, soul-crushing and three boys? You can just tell me what supper power you have. That's the only way you're surviving.

  9. It's sad that the star/face thing in the middle is the last thing I noticed. I was too busy laughing at Liam...

  10. You poor babies. I hope you get well soon. I seriously want to steal this slide. Don't worry, I'll fill in the holes in the letters.

  11. Have you thought about quarantining yourselves? and like maybe your whole country? Because I want a part of *none* of that.

    Thank you.

  13. This household hasn't had a bad cold/flu in 2 yrs and we didn't get the h1n1 shots here either. My solution, don't touch any surfaces outside the home. The kid that coughs next to you in school, avoid him like the plague. And under no circumstances do you enter a clinic or hospital, because that's were you get sick in the first place. When I see snot, I turn the other way, sorry Captain, I can't look at you anymore. Get well soon.

  14. Sending healing thoughts your way. There's nothing fun about a house full of sick people.

  18. Baby snot zombie is hilarious! I hope you are all better soon.

  19. Oh don't you just hate snot, it's as bad as dry rot.
    I can fit my finger up my nose, maybe even a small hose.
    Hey you can use the hose to get rid of the snot, just don't get caught.
    Or you might look kind of funny, but then some might pay you money.
    To watch you flush out your nose, or maybe they'll at least give you a rose.
    Oh those germs, I'd rather eat worms.
    Develop OCD and then you'll be germ free like me!

  20. We've had some version of this since Christmas. I'm starting to wonder if I could loan out the kids to a science lab. They are after all the human petri dish.

    Here's hoping you all survive!

  21. If there was any question out there, you have now proven your manhood. Only a guy would waste the time this took when his whole family is sick. A woman would be busy with the Lysol and Clorox. If I were SL, I would lock you all in a bedroom in your jammies, clean the house and not let you out until every last one of you infested boys was symptom free. (except Finn. I suspect he's adorable even when he's sick, and since he's just a baby he deserves extra cuddles...)

  22. God I love your recreations of actual events. You should go work for Law and Order (the tv show) so that you can replace their characters with stick figures. I would totally watch it.

  23. Oy. You have my sympathies.

    C U R S E D with men, hehehehehehehehehe

  25. Oh yeah being sick completly sucks and whenever one person in the family gets it 99% of the time everyone else gets it too.

  26. Hope you are trapped with enough decent food and videos (and enough tvs to each watch what you want! Feel better soon all!

    All the best.

  28. I was sick last week. I just wasn't myself at all. Not only was I sick, but I wouldn't stop talking about it, asking Chris to put his hand on my forehead and see if I had a fever, making gross hacking noises that weren't strictly necessary but might clear my throat a little... Finally I looked at him and had a major epiphany: Oh my god - I'm really not acting like myself at all - I'm acting like YOU!

  29. I think I'm going to have a nightmare about that baby snot zombie......
