I was finally getting over that nasty cold I had last week...no more snotz, sniffles or hacking cough.
Until last night. Just before bedtime I noticed my throat getting scratchy.
Today....full blown allergy attack of the throat, sinus running and I sound like a man!
Tharyngitis the Doc will call it.
I know why........Sunday we were down at Wrightsville Beach looking at the boats for sale, in the wind.
I even said "I shouldn't be out here in this wind so soon after my cold" but did I listen to me?
Even the pelican thought so too! He has this look about him like he's pissed off!
So today I'm lunching on Salsa and chips just for the salt and vinegar to "kill" whatever is going on in my throat.
Monday was a warm 70 degrees here....and today 77. Yesterday I spent the day "praising" Tom for his great attitude since our big talk on 2/22. Mom wasn't aware of his "change"; neither was my friend DJ, who came into the office with 3 sales contracts; neither did my pal Dick. So I sang praises........
........and jinxed it.
The norm is that Tom takes Miss T to dance. Dance on Monday is 6-7:45pm....she calls me at 8:05 and says "Tom's not here....he said he's at the mall and is on his way"....OK. At 8:10 I call him & he says "I'm at the mall, I'm on my way"....the mall is 5 minutes away.
At 8:40 Miss T calls back "he's still not here" so I said OK I'm coming to get you.....from home....20 mins away. I called one of the dance mom's to be sure she'd be there till I got there. I was there by 9pm....stayed and talked a bit. At 9:10 I call Tom and he says "I'm almost to her" and low and behold he's behind me as we're leaving.
Needless to say I was NOT HAPPY. She had not had any dinner; she was about to panic -- after all, he said he was coming an hour ago....on a school night!
She wanted KFC....he followed us there. I gave him hell over the phone. WHY? Why didn't he follow through?
He claims he just lost track of time "looking" in the mall.
While at KFC I asked him for some cash....he began looking in all pockets, then panic came over him and he couldn't find any. I said "oh? lose it out the window?" And he said that must have been what happened as he pulled his cigarettes out of his shirt pocket --- the money came out too.
I don't buy it.
He swears by it.
Why tell Miss T & me you're on the way........if you KNOW you're not? I should have kept him on the phone and waited while he walked outside and got in the truck and cranked up.
But I shouldn't have to.
Oh she gave him a fit.
Strike ONE .... in the bottom of the 9th.
After 10 days of possitive.
He hasn't read any of his book since oh maybe Thursday. Said he was taking a break. Well, obviously the reading material was keeping him focused on GOOD behavior.
Still keeping one eye open........
