Much Better

Hi mcoletti, risk misery, foreignlegion, rhythmphish, hmmvaa, pggmilltn, just_a_guy_03 and Hugs:

Thanks so much for the well wishes, I appreciate it!

Little did I know that I would continue being sick up until maybe yesterday. What ailed me went from horrible to a nightmare. I'm surprised I made it through. I was unable to even walk cause I felt dizzy and the nights were scary. I kept dreaming I was a huge soggy sponge. Has anyone ever dreamed they were a sponge? In my dream, I'd walk and do all things humans do, but in slow motion and as a sponge. What a strange experience. I have never had the flu shot because I behave very immaturely when given a shot. After this experience, I will take the shot next year, no matter what.

This little flu incident brought something to my mind and it's totally off the subject of the flu. I would like to know if you feel this particular fear of being in an auto or some other kind of accident and much to your dismay, you have on very unattractive underwear. It's funny, but when I buy underwear, it's not to please the opposite sex. I buy underwear for just in case I'm suddenly taken to the hospital. I take my daily shower not to impress anyone, but to smell nice, should I (God forbid) die unexpectantly. I've often wondered how the person that does an autopsy reacts when he gets a stinky body. Does he giggle to find drawers or socks with holes or unshaved armpits.

My greatest fear from this flu incident was to die in bed. I hate to admit this but I went an extra 3 days without taking a shower. Why? 'Cause I'm sure I would have pass out. I wasn't smelling funny anymore. I was smelling so rancid that I almost saw the fumes. When I finally did shower, I scrubbed every inch of my body until it was red. I sprayed myself with my favorite perfume, White Shoulders, which I use only for very special occasion. Thank goodness I'm alive and CLEAN now. I gave Mickey and Jewely their baths too because they had picked up my repulsive odor, too. Poor little things!

I don't worry about those things because, well, I'll be dead. By definition I won't be able to worry about it!

Meanwhile, I'll keep wearing my smiley face boxers.

i'm glad you're feeling better *hugs*

look at it this way...if you die in bed, by the time they get to you, you'll probably not smell so good anyway. hm...i don't know if that makes you feel better or not ;)

stinky rancid sponge
My grandmother use to warn us about going out of the house in dirty underwear.." What if you get hit by a truck?" she would say.
And it stuck with me all my life.
But looking back I think that The doctors would be more intrested in the skidmarks on my body, not on my scooby-doo underoos.
Although getting hit by a truck you are almost sure to soil yourself, so what can ya' do?

I very much recommend a flu shot if you have regular respiratory infections, or lots of allergies. I've got both problems. It must be said that I have had one really bad incident of chronic illness after a flu shot (but there may have been other factors that helped make me ill). I have stopped being ill with the flu at least twice yearly after I started getting a flu shot every fall.

the flu this year is an especially nasty one. My husband and I barely made it through. WHen he was at his sickest he kept babbling about "Big under cats the bed underneath cats the bed!"
I think you were perfectly justified in beign just as horriifically stinky and rank as you could be. Maybe the odor scared away the flu germs?

I hope you're feeling better playgirl, know how nasty that flu bug can be. Funny with the underware, I think the same thing when I'm buying it. What if I'm on my way to work and I get like mugged and I'm in the hospital and I have on holey underware or something repulsive.

Your writings are familiar... do you do anything else besides this journal and the attendant website?

btw, hi. *waves*. Don't ask how I found you, I can't remember... I just randomly clicked links and such here and there on lj... I think a monkey was involved at one point, but it might have just been a wombat. Either way, the journal looks nice, and with your permission, I shall continue to read more.

*thinks*... of course, with LJ, there's not much you could do to stop me, but eh... politeness knows no logic.

For some reason you show up as having a high number of compatable interests so I thought I'd just say hello.

the clean underwear thing sounds like something my nonna (grandma would say). I totally understand. who wants to see skid marks! jokes!

you sound like a clean freak....have you ever gone to post secondary education??? dude, sometimes I don't shower for three days b/c I need to study so bad. and I don't really care. sometimes I forget to wear deodourant... and well, too bad. I don't smell rank b/c I shave my pits.
if I exercise, I definitely shower b/c that's just gross. and I don't want nasty skin from sweat.

I'm afraid of car accidents but only b/c I've been in one and I don't want to see people I care about hurt.
