Forget Swine Flu....
it's the EGYPTIAN FLU!!!
Aaah, it's an epidemic!!! As I have watched close friends and family become affected by this serious condition, I thought I was immune...
When I was 12 I remember coming home from school, and my mom was lying on the couch, not looking too well. I was an overly dramatic child, (possibly still am???) and after several days of coming home to my mom like this, I had a panic attack and was convinced that my mom was dying, that she had cancer or was possibly being poisoned by our water (I did not drink it for days). I broke down and with worry, cried to my mom and begged her to tell me what was wrong!!!
She said to me, "Becca, I have the Egyptian flu"... oh man, this sounded bad. She for sure was dying. I cried some more.
Then I asked her, "what is the Egyptian flu???"
"Well, you get really sick, and then 9 months later, you become a MUMMY!!
Here I am, 13 years later, and I've caught the FLU!!!!
p.s. we are still unsure if it is actually a baby, a chicken nugget or an alien, however, JR. will make his/her arrival sometime around Nov. 9th!!! Also -- if it is not a boy Josh says we have to give it back.
