Sick humor

Hannah has come down with something--I'm hoping it's not influenza. She's aching and feverish, with a slight cough. It started last evening, and she was very weepy and tearful (what's the difference between those two words?). Since she slept through the night, I was hoping that she'd be better this morning. But, no. Her temp is hovering around 101. I'm a fan of letting the fever do its work, as long as she isn't too miserable. I did start her on oscillocosinum, which is a homeopathic remedy for flu. If it isn't flu, no harm done. If it is, then her body will already be working on fighting it.


I know she's not feeling too poorly since she's still telling jokes. She LOVES to tell jokes. The ones she makes up are just lousy. Complete non-sequiturs. But she has memorized more than a few good jokes. Our newest favorite is this:

What do you call a cow with no legs?

Ground Beef.
She uses this one as an old standby:

What do you call a fish with 10 eyes?

A Fiiiiiiiiiish.

She's also got lots of knock-knock jokes.

Knock knock!

Who's there?

Jose.

Jose who?

Jose can you see, by the dawn's early light...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Knock knock!

Who's there?

Duane.

Duane who?

Duane the tub, I'm dwowning.

Maybe that's not such a good one for a kid with articulation issues!

Right now she's lying in my bed watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. She's even dancing a bit to the Oompa Loompa(s). A nice lazy Valentine's Day.
