For the first time in my life, mosquito bites are swelling to the size of a basketball. It makes me a little weirded out that I am having such a reaction. Maybe the mosquitoes out here are super potent villainous creatures. Why is my body changing so much! Ermagerd!
Once this reaction occurs, I have no choice but to consult with Benadryl which knocks me out for hours and I wake up in a fog. Not a fan. Erg. Just give me a beer and what a great roofie created-wake me up in two days. Not really. I don't like being in a fog. It sucks monkey ballz.
Coffee was introduced at about 0800 which is a late start for me and it is slowly working. Maybe I should take it intravenously. Enter the Komodo Dragon.
Many have asked if I am going to write another book. Not right now. Not in the mood. Terrible, huh? I am working on something for parents about child predators. It's in the very rough draft stage. I'm still not feeling the writing bug. Maybe it's because I feel like a swollen basketball. I don't know. I am also revising The Boogie Man so it passed the time this summer while I gaffed off my list of house duties while Bug was away. My enthusiasm is missing as deeply as Hillary Clinton's emails.
Isn't it funny how anyone close to the WH has zapped emails? Wow. Must be an epidemic there. Perhaps I should tell them to apply my tax dollars to a server which is in working order.
My life is now filled with school activities, doggie loves, and teenager honey do lists. Where did my life go? I can only escape by the dark of the night when I go running lit by fire flies. So crazy.
At least we have a month reprieve before students settle in again. And what on yonder bough breaks say you? Yeah. The language of the yoot.
Meanwhile, I have learned some new Near South language:
clawlset: spelled c-l-o-s-e-t. A place to house clothes.
sawl: spelled s-a-w: past tense of see
And I met another person who used the word "toboggan" in reference to a hat. Once again, they wear fucking sleds on their heads around here. Geesh. That shit must get heavy.
