Don't Bleed for me, Johnston County

So this week has featured an upper respiratory infection (mine, and may I just say that Augmentin, while an ass-kicking antibiotic, has killed Every Bacteria, Good and Bad, in my body, with predictably hilarious results), Kindergartener party wrangling, Halloween, a crash-course in Phytoplankton, a somewhat disappointing episode of Supernatural, and eye strain. Thus, no blogging. Sorry about that.

I will now share the conversation I had with The Boy last night as I drove home from work. The Boy likes to talk to me on the phone during my drive time, and I learn the most interesting things from these 20 minute conversations, like the fact that Peyton wants to marry Sidney and that The Boy scolded him soundly and told him that Kindergarteners didn't get married because then they would have to be daddies and moochie-kiss girls all the time. So there. And then The Boy busted out with:

Boy: Do you know what Daddy did today?

Me: No.

Boy: He took part of his blood out! And put it in somebody else!

Me:...Oh, you mean he gave blood?

Boy: I cried when he told me.

Me: Why?

Boy: Daddy needs his blood in him! He can't just give it away!

Me: But son, your body makes more blood.

Boy: Daddy said that too but I don't care. We don't give out our blood to other people.

Me: Why not?

Boy: We just don't. We keep our blood inside us where it belongs.

Me: What about other things, like kidneys?

Boy: NOOOOOO! We don't give out our insides!

Me: Ever?

Boy: Ever!

So I'm thinking we'll be marking "no" in the organ donor section of The Boy's driver's license.

In other news, finally read Eragon. Enjoyable, if a rather abrupt ending. I think it would be more fun for young folk who aren't familiar with Tolkein yet, though.

BAW, go to the health food store (or possibly Walgreen's) and get some acidophilus tablets. You take one 30 minutes after each dose of your antibiotic. It helps you get some normal bugs back in there.

Made me laugh. And I was glad to hear about Eragon. I bought it and never got around to reading it.
