The Unsick Day

The Unsick Day

March 21, 2012


So Miles is home from school again today. Though he is completely fine. Hasn’t had a fever all morning. This is the worst because he is tired of being home. And after lying quiet on the couch with a raging fever for two days, he has realized he has lots of words saved up that he didn’t speak. It is now his duty to use up three days worth of talking in one day! I have no doubt he will accomplish this. If only his high school aged brothers would put forth such effort in anything, well other than texting.

Miles has decided that we should pretend like he really is at school. And follow the schedule they do at school.

I didn’t know that there was so much talking and SpongeBob watching that went on at school. But apparently I DO NOT KNOW these things because I have not been in first grade for a long time. Miles assures me this is JUST LIKE SCHOOL.

He made me make him a lunch like I do for when he goes to school. Complete with the “good” snacks. The ones I keep locked in my closet. Oh yes, I do.

Then it was time for recess. He was going to go jump on the trampoline. He stood at the door expectantly, “At school the teachers watch us play outside…”

“Well since this is pretend school, the pretend teacher is outside waiting for you.”

He thought about this. How could he argue with my superior logic. Ha! He went outside for a few minutes.

He came back in and announced that it was going to be indoor recess because of the pretend bad weather. Indoor recess is when you jump up and down on the furniture in your underwear.

Is it elementary school he attends or some sort of frat house training facility?

    Just wanted to say GLAD YOU’RE BACK! Every day I get online and I check to see, and the January 24th post is the only one there. I really enjoy your humor and your take on things, and I hope all is well and that you are back for good (or at least a good long time) . . . (or until I get a life, apparently).
    Take care :-)

    I hear the pretend teacher’s lounge has a box of wine in the fridge.

    That’s adorable! That’s the beauty of pretend, right? You can make it up as you go along. Sure, indoor recess, that’s what we have!

    Oh my GOD - this kid has a job waiting for him as a stand up comedian when he is old enough to be in bars. He cracks me up!
