The Baby Whisperer.

I seem to have mystical powers over babies. That's right, I said it. And I could probably beat any baby at arm wrestling!

Last weekend we went to Sonic for lunch. While we were eating a guy shows up and tried to go inside. He then states "What kind of Sonic don't let you go inside?". I thought to myself "All of them?" So he goes to the outside order box and says "Give me 2 cups of that ice." After about 2 minutes a guy comes out with 2 cups of ice and tells him it'll be 76 cents, to which he replies "Oh, y'all got that good ice. That's alright, I got a little change in my pocket." He pays for the ice and leaves.


While this is going on a family shows up and sits at the table next to us. After a few minutes I sense a child walking up to our table. I quickly glare in his direction to let him know I did not want to be bothered. My glare quickly changes to a smile when I see he came over to give me a piece of candy. What's up with that? Random children are just giving me candy now.

Fast forward to today. Everyone here has errands to run so I headed over to Taco Bell by myself. A man shows up with a couple in there late teens and a cute little blonde haired blue eyed baby. Had to be less than a year old. They sat her with her back to me but she kept turning around to look at me. If I wasn't looking back, she would make a noise to attract my attention until I looked at her and smiled.


What none of you know is that I'm secretly building an army. I'm using my telepathic powers to control these children, then 20 years from now I will send out a signal and take over the world.

What? The secret is out? Did I just say it out loud? Oh, um, I was just kidding. None of that is going to happen. I promise.

In case you were curious.

Here's what the 8.5 hour drive looked like.

I have...

...been feeling pretty UGH for a day or two. I thought it was my body retaliating for the abuse I put it through last weekend. The next day I felt like I had run a marathon. Just sore. But it was totally worth it. I had a great time. Thanks everyone!

I think I misjudged my symptoms and actually caught a cold. Not a lot of fun. High fever, cold sweats. It happens to me every few years or so. I break out in a rash, my fever burns everything inside that is ailing me, then it breaks and I wake up feeling wonderful. I didn't want to prolong the fever doing it's thing so I haven't been taking any medicine.

Hannah finally decided enough was enough and told me I need to start taking medicine. One of the things I was taking were Halls Lozenges. The little square tube of them. They were working well, and I found a whole bag of them in the medicine cabinet. On my way to work today I ate one. It was the same flavor as the square ones, but this one was round, like a piece of candy. And when it was almost gone I discovered the center was chock full of slimy liquid nastiness. It was horrible. I see why they were in the cabinet. Whoever thought this was a good idea should be shot.

Unfortunately with the cold I haven't ridden the bike the last two days. I thought about it this morning until I almost fell over in the shower. Twice. I decided my balance was probably not the best at the moment and four wheels was probably the way to go.

Our cat use to misbehave when she was little and we'd squirt her with a water bottle. That was many years ago. But just recently she started acting up again so I bought a new squirt bottle. It only took one time. She apparently remembered. So last night I'm laying in bed and the cat was with me. I took one squirt of chloraseptic and never saw her again the rest of the night.
