Girls Write Out
Monday, June 18, 2007

Turns out the boy in my first grade class was right. I do have cooties.

Evidently, I have a spot on my lung that the doctors seem to think is some kind of infection. Possibly a contagious infection. Just what we’re dealing with, they’re not sure.

Sooooo, I have strict orders to stay home for TWO weeks and if I HAVE to go out of the house, I have to wear a mask. Okay, maybe not the one in the picture, but the patient-type that screams nerd-with-cooties. That would be the one.

The good news is my daughter offered to draw lips on it, and I figured, hey, if I’m going to have to wear it, might as well have some fun. The real dilemma here is how does one eat truffles through a mask?

No need to feel sorry for me, though. I have edits to work on, and I’m surrounded by great books I’ve yet to read. And don’t tell anyone but I’m actually looking forward to some rest.

If you get bored, feel free to email me. We can’t spread germs through the computer—well, other than that virus thing, but I don’t think I have that.

Happy Monday! *g*

Okie asked for it and I'll email you! LOL

Oh...and to eat the truffles? Melt them and suck them through a straw!

EEK! Hoping the 2 weeks of rest is all you need. Just please tell us you haven't taken a plane trip with that Speaker guy!

As for the truffles. . . take them into a room where you're all by yourself, take the mask off and eat away. No problems figuring out how to eat them through the mask. Plus, you won't have to share. {grin}

Sending you Prayers Diann.
Take care. :)

Such a blatant plea for us to send you truffles, Di. Sheesh, wish I'd thought of that! LOL

Seriously, I want to see a picture of you in the mask with the lips drawn on it. LOL

Colleen has been seeking fashion advice, and the mask with the lips may be just the thing! ;) You've been holding out on her, Diann!

I am sorry about the quarantine, but happy it doesn't involve starvation, emaciation, and utter isolation. What if your hubby had to attach the truffles to a string out on the curb and you had to tug on the string to pull the little pretties into the bedroom window? And they got all dirty and cobwebby?

Seriously. I am praying for you!!

I'll look forward to the email, Suzanne!

LOL, Heather! Nope, no trips with the Speaker guy. *g*

Thanks, Anna Marie!!

I'll see if I can get a picture, Colleen. *g*

You're right, Katy, this could be a whole new fashion statement! LOL!

Praying for you!

Unseriously, this'll probably wind up being a scene in one of your novels!

A Michael Jackson mask?
Does he still do that?
It might be a fun social exeriment to walk around with one of those. Good research on human behavior. LOL
Praying all is well and have fun with it in the meanwhile.

Oh Di, praying for you! What kind of infection.

You know, however, I can relate. Some times a good old fashion sickness is what we need to make us slow down, give us an excuse.

Love you, Rachel

Alright, Diann, if you're going to draw lips on the mask, you better make them big, kissy lips! In fire-engine red. If you're going to do it, do it with style! LOL!

I am sorry to hear you have to remain home for two weeks, but do you think you could give me the name of your doctor? I could use a prescription like that! LOL!

As for the truffles, buy a big box, take them home and lock yourself in your room. No need to share. :-) Doctor said so. And if someone threatens to storm the door, threaten to remove your mask. Bwahahahaha.

At 3:24 PM, Blogger Shauna said...

P.S. You'll be in my prayers! And I'll send you an e-mail full of nonsensical (sp?) stuff. You may learn more about me than you want to know, but nothing the FBI will seek you out for. LOL!

At 3:59 PM, Blogger Diann Hunt said...

Thanks for the prayers, all!

LOL! Shauna, nothing less than fire engine red lips will do! :-)

Okay, the gauntlet has been thrown. Let's all send Di a mask! She can vote on the funniest one and send any left over truffles to the winner. :o)
