seeing red on Black Friday

It's not what you think.

I remained true to my word. I did not venture out on Black Friday.

I felt my throat closing up just after Thanksgiving dinner. I knew I had caught whatever cold Amara brought home. So I jumped into bed and never looked back.

I skipped out on the gym this morning to sleep an extra hour. I then headed to work.

By noon, my throat felt raw. Sipping coffee was a chore. I drove home and jumped back into bed.

I awoke to the most blessed sight --
Dad2Amara had braved the Black Friday crowds and bought me lozenges! I was seeing red. Just a different red than Dad2Amara saw after running into our local Wal-Mart.

I downed a lozenge and was able to make it to Zumba. My Black Friday is a little red today. And I couldn't be happier.


  1. Honestly girl, take your vitamins!! You can't be sick again! I hope you feel better.

  2. My GOD, you're infected easily. Next thing you know, you'll get bird flu from eating too much Balut.
