Sick As A Dog
Ezra was exclaiming how lucky Judah has been to stay home from school for so many days because, "almost every time I'm at school, he gets to watch TV."
I replied, "Yeah... but on the other hand, he's been sick as a dog."
Ezra, always fast on the uptake, "It depends if the dog is sick or not."
Yes, yes, it does, I suppose.
Judah has been sick for 8 days - missed school 6 days in a row! But he should be headed back tomorrow, just taking it easy, I hope. You can tell he's not himself - he's still not eating much and the child is not only moving slowly, and reading all the time, but he is QUIET. Yes, I know, it is hard to imagine, but it is true! Hopefully he won't be sick as a dog for much longer!
