Sneezily Transmitted Diseases

April 6th, 2007




Dear Mum,

Here’s an Easter Bunny for you to colour-in over the weekend. Just click on the picture and then print it out.

So how’s your week been? Here’s how mine went:

Friday: wake up with a sore throat – Grumpy

Saturday: hacking cough accompanied by temperature – spend day in bed – Grumpy & Sleepy

Sunday: cough worse – temperature worse – whole body aching – very cold and shivery – stay in bed – sleep, sleep, sleep – want my mum – still Grumpy & Sleepy – need Doc

Monday: still coughing – temperature still there – start sneezing a lot – eyes very sore – stay in bed – sleep lots – Sneezy joins Grumpy & Sleepy – still no sign of Doc

Tuesday: cough looser – temperature going – nose leaking badly now – can’t stop sneezing – eyes still very sore – try getting up but go back to bed with Grumpy, Sleepy, Sneezy and now Dopey too – Doc is officially declared AWOL

Wednesday: getting better by degrees – stay up most of the day – no energy – bed by 7pm with Grumpy, Sleepy, Sneezy & Dopey – Bashful too shy to join us – Doc has been found and arrested, and now faces court-martial

Thursday: temperature pretty much gone – coughing and sneezing pretty much stopped – still no energy though – bed by 8pm – Doc is released on a technicality – Dwarfs go out to celebrate – don’t come home til 3am, all totally plastered! 

Friday (today): still feel a bit rough and lifeless – but it’s a BH with a sunny day forecast 23º – I’m off to the beach! – Happy!


But I did find time to write you a poem. More of a limerick really. Well nearly anyway:

There was a young fellow from Cyprus
Who needed some pills for his virus
When he got to the shop
The sneezing had stopped
So he thought “Sod it! I’ll get it next time, innit!” and went off to the pub instead


Happy Easter!

Is the Easter Bunny walking towards me? Or walking away but looking at me over its shoulder? And why has it put all its eggs in one basket? Anyway, Bunnies don’t lay eggs!
