Things I Have Pondered While Having the 24-hour Flu

There should be rules against the entire family having the 24-hour flu in the same 24 hours!
  1. Is this food poisoning or the flu?
    Wait, how are you supposed to know??
  2. How many people a year die from the stomach flu?
    I don't really want to know the answer to that!
  3. How do you convince a 3 year old to wake up and vomit in a bowl?
    It turns out that after two times of vomiting all over herself and having to shower, she figured it out!
  4. Do we have enough...
    Sheets, towels, face clothes, bowls etc.?
  5. How am I supposed to parent?
    I don't think I'm capable of taking care of myself right now, how can I take care of young children? Maybe it's my kids who are taking care of me, as one offers me water while the other is rubbing my back.
  6. How do kids bounce back so quickly!
    They hardly slept and have been very sick, why are they bouncing off the walls now?
  7. Is there a place around here that delivers chicken noodle soup?
    Why the hell isn't there? Maybe that's an excellent business opportunity!
  8. Is that the doorbell?
    Why the hell would someone ring my doorbell if they don't have chicken noodle soup!?
