I'd be better off with swine flu

Dead Set.

Here are 10 reasons why I sorta wish I had swine flu:

1. I'd feel better than I do now
2. I'd recover quicker
3. There's even anti-viral medications you can take for it
4. I wouldn't have to trudge through the grocery shops with two small children - in fact, I wouldn't be allowed to, as I'd be quarantined
5. Same goes for kindy drop-offs and pick-ups
6. And everything else
7. I would not feel bad about neglecting the poor dog
8. I'd get some sympathy! Yesss!
9. I'd be forced to stay away from crowds and maybe even my dear little children, for fear they would get sick. And that would be a respite I have been desperate to achieve for years.
10. I would probably be on doctor's orders to lie in bed and read some good books.

Pic from the internet - I certainly wasn't up to thinking of anything remotely funny and staging the picture.
Please do not comment if you plan to disagree with me. You would be wrong.

Not disagreeing at all, my dear.

Love the photographic illustration.

Wishing you were feeling better already and sending OODLES of sympathy across the ocean!!!

Oh, that photo is hilarious!! I'm guessing you did not have the energy to stage that one yourself.

I couldn't agree with you more. If only we could have a glimpse of that baby's first smile on the ultrasound. Because until then, the beauty is SO hidden!

If anyone tells you how much they loved being pregnant and missed it after they had their baby, you just send them to me and I will take care of them.

You definitely would be although I'm not sure how good it would be for Thingamababy.

That picture is great although it took me a second to get it. Maybe I DO have swine flu after all...

Poor Piglet. You would get all of those things, but you would be lonely like him!

Who am I kidding? All of that sounds GREAT!

Oh, no! Swine f-f-f-f-flu would be so b-b-b-b-b-bad, Pooh!

HA! I totally agree with you! I keep telling Luke that jee needs to go and visit the schools with swine flu and then pass it on to me! But the big party pooper just won't do it hehehe

Love the piccy too :)

I love the photo. Someone has a sense of humour (but why is Piglet the only one without a mask?).
