Locking His Rate

  1. We have had the flu this week—my daughter first, then my son and me.
  2. We have endured high fevers, lethargy, coughing, sore throats,
  3. and one of us barfed up spaghetti (my son)
  4. and one of us cleaned up blobs of spaghetti barf (me).
  5. We have lived in PJs and watched a lot of movies.
  6. This morning, our son asked his dad what day it was.
  7. When told it was Saturday, he asked his dad, since we three had been sick all week, if we could stay home from church tomorrow.
  8. My husband laughed when he told me about this, that our son was trying to "lock his rate."
  9. Clever little sick kid.
