She Left the Suds in the Bucket and the Clothes Hangin' Out on the Line


Fifteenth rinse of towels
...has officially been replaced.

Today has been a crazy day. First, the boys are still sick. We took temperatures and heavily medicated them and took Griffin to school (he was acting fine).

Later this afternoon he was screaming bloody murder over one thing or another and I noticed this HUGE white thing in his throat. So I made Aaron look. He didn't see it, so I made him look again. We called the doctor and I took him in.

Of course, five minutes after I left the delivery guys showed up with means No. Photos. Of. Washer. And. Dryer. Event. Argh!

Anyway, the did a strep test on Griffin and it came back negative.

Turns out the big white thing in his throat was -- and if you're squeamish stop reading, as I am gagging as I write this -- small food particles stuck in his tonsils, which was then encased in mucus, which then caught more food particles, which was encased in more mucus, which caught more food particles, which was encased with more mucus and so on and so forth. (Ewwwww!!!)

So the doctor sprayed some numbing stuff in his throat (this is so disgusting, why haven't you stopped reading yet?) and poked at it. And when some fell? He told Griffin to swallow it. (Ewwwwww)!!! He did that three times and still didn't get it all out. He said what he did "knock out" was as big as the end part of his pinky finger. (Ewwwwww!!!)

Once we came home I felt much better.

After basking in the glow of the new washer and dryer, I licked them.

And then I dry humped them.

That is so funny! Reminds me of a friend that used to pick her own food particles out of her mouth - reach waaay back and pick them off of her tonsils. I can't remember if she swallowed them, though...gross.
