Ode to a Saltine

sweating, freezing, shaking;
losing vital fluids from every orifice imaginable;
haven't eaten in 24 hours;
pepto turning my insides unnatural colors;
but then there is you - my darling Saltine.
crispity, salty, life-saving cracker-
nothing tastes as good as you.

Yikes! Hope you are feeling better, or that this is just hypothetical ode. :)

That little ditty was written last night, but there was no computer in sight so i shared it today.
Yes, i am feeling better; thank you.

Glad you're feeling better...you should let us know when you feel crappy...we can go to the store for you, etc. You know we only live 1.0 miles away!

I probably should have called when i drove the .5 miles to the CVS directly between our houses to get the Pepto on Sunday morning as i might have been putting myself and everyone around me at risk. Not to mention scaring small children and the pharmacist with my unwashed, non-hairbrushed, shambling pathetic self.
