The one good thing about being sick? You can do all those things you really want to do on a Saturday but always feel guilty doing because you should be out there Carpe Dieming the hell out of life.
But when you have a cold you can crawl into bed at 5 p.m. with your beloved Replacements book and sleep until 7. You can opt out of fun pizza-filled Guitar Hero parties in favor of your pajamas. Best of all are the cheesecake brownie chasers served with cups of chamomile tea. Oh and the America’s Next Top Model marathon on MTV.
Can I get an Amen?
The best part of today (besides when I was babysitting the Tibbles, all of who have colds too, and fell asleep and woke up to Nolan tickling my feet) was while reading The Replacements: All Over But the Shouting to see RJ Smith say something about how Paul Westerberg uses objective correlatives in his songwriting.
So wonderfully nerdy to me on so many levels.
