All hail Tamiflu!

I started taking it on Monday, and--as you may have guessed from yesterday's entry--was still not feeling much better. In fact, yesterday I could be heard muttering things like "Tamiflu! Bosh!"*

But today! Today I feel human! And I'm also no longer contagious, so I will go forth and spread sunshine and cheer! Or, you know, go to the store and buy things like food.

*Yes, I really did say "Bosh!" See, I once had a job where I wasn't allowed to curse. At all. Now, I know running around dropping the f-bomb isn't a good thing, but let me tell you, once you're told "no cursing!"--well, any time something even remotely curseworthy happens, your first instinct (if you're me) is to say "$@#%! And @!%-!%$% too!" So I had to come up with words I could use since I couldn't use the other ones. Some of my faves were: Motherplucker! Fragnabit! Crappitydodah! and, of course, Bosh! And, naturally, I never forgot them, so while I can't remember the name of my fourth grade teacher--or, at the moment, where my car keys are-- I can still say Motherplucker! when needed.

Hurrah for health!

I don't swear. I say odd phrases instead - usually improvised, random things, but there are some that I repeat. The other day, I heard one of those latter types come out of the mouth of one of my students, and I cracked up royally.

My mum never, ever swore. Once at work she knocked over a bucket of water and said, "Piddle and twiddle!" and her boss joked, "Mrs James - please!" LOL
