A Bit Chilly…

We had an ice storm come though here and it closed the school system yesterday.  I woke my 14 year old up like usual and said, “You awake?”

“Uh huh.”

“You sure you’re awake?”

“Uh huh.”

“Going to get dressed?”

“Uh huh.”



“You going to get up and get dressed?”



“……………..You’re confusing me.”

“We’re in the middle of an ice storm.  No school today.”


I laugh.  She says, “I love you Daddy!” (as if it were me who caused the ice storm).

Meanwhile I was pretty sick with a low grade fever, and I could barely talk.  I didn’t call in sick (because right now I work from home) but I did bow out of a teleconference, saying, “Unless you really need me, it hurts to talk.”

I’m feeling a bit better today.
