It was all a dream...or was it?

Me: Whew...it sure is quiet in here...Hmmm...wonder if I can come out now?

Blogger police: Come out with your hands up!

Me: Whoa! Who are you and why are you in my blog?

Blogger Police: The blogger police. We got a missing person report. Where've you been?

Me: Sick.

Blogger police: Sick with what?

Me: My son's two day virus from three weeks ago.

Blogger police: His virus was only two days and that was three weeks ago. You've been gone for two weeks.

Me: Yeah, well that's how long I've been sick.

Blogger police: Whatcha been taking for it?

Me: Everything... including cough syrup with codeine I scored from my neighbor.

Blogger police: You mean you shared a prescription drug with someone from the 'hood?"

Me: Oh, did I say that. No I meant I got a prescription from the doctor.

Blogger police: You plan on returning anytime soon?

Me: I guess. It's been so long I forgot I had a blog. Who won the election?

Blogger police: Barack Obama.

Me: Oh yeah, that's right. Wow, that cough syrup sure conjured up some crazy dreams.


Blogger police: Like what?


Me: Well, I dreamt Hillary Clinton was named Secretary of State, Britney Spears was skinny again, gas is down to $1.73 a gallon, the auto industry is about to collapse, and that it was just a few weeks before Christmas. None of that is possible.


Blogger police: Not only possible, it's fo realz.


Me: "Fo realz?" "Fo realz????" Who are you?


Blogger police: OJ Simpson.


Me: OJ Simpson? THE OJ Simpson. Now I know it wasn't "fo realz"...I dreamt you were finally going to jail...

Hee. I hear ya. Let's kidnap Britney and learn her skinny secrets. I have a bad feeling that she's going to say "Strict diet and puke inducing exercise" but you never know--she might have some magic pills.

Now isn't that depressing. I for one at least am glad to see that you're back! Hope you've finally shaken that nasty thing!

I'm so glad you are coming out of your long illness.

Kimberley said...

Ha haaaa!!! Glad you're better. I was worried! Can I have your neighbor's number?

JourneytoFamily said...

THAT was awesome!!!

Melissa Lester said...

Oh, my, Debbie, I'm glad you are back with us. I'm so sorry you were sick. If you are like me, though, you struggle through an illness like that and on the other side of it there is only one thing you want to know that would make all the pain and suffering worth it: Did I lose any weight?

Lula! said...

I am so glad you are back. I am so sorry you caught my sickness from all across the state. Well, K must have caught it from me first, then passed it onto you...it's the gift that keeps on giving, you know?

This was worth the wait, my friend. Oh, and gas here on the other side of our state? $1.49, baby!!!!

Melissa said...

Praise the Lord and hallelujer, justice has finally been served.

Ickiness is going around everywhere. We've all been plagued....My son sounds like a pack a day smoker. I'm like "Duh, he's only eight, he doesn't smoke! We prefer dipping...."

"The Queen in Residence" said...

Are there really bloggy police? Cause if so we are all in trouble!!!

I am still laughing you are so great. I do love me some codeine laced cough syrup!!!

And hallelujah OJ is finally where he belongs.

And have you looked at your tree - 14 days my dear, time to get busy!

~*Lisa*~ said...

Thank you so much for the chuckle. I needed that today! Blessings!

Gramma 2 Many said...

Missed you. Hope you are feeling much better.

Melissa B. said...

And we're at the OBX for the weekend, and gas is a buck 49 here! Marvelous, creative post! That codeine did something to sharpen your synapses, huh?

LaDonna said...

Thanks for the laugh. Glad to see you feeling better and back to blogging.

Rachael said...

Glad you are back in "fighting shape!". That post was absolutely hilarious....I guess quite a lot has happened since you have been sick :-)

Veggie Mom said...

OK, I nearly peed my pants. Have you considered writing for Leno or Letterman?

Lee Ann said...

Oh Debbie I'm sorry you've been sick so long! It did make you really funny though! :-) Maybe it was the codeine. My mom and I swap that stuff all the time. I LOVE it! Makes me sleep like a baby. When I was pregnant she took my bottle. We had this really funny/sad ceremony because she took my cough syrup with codeine. And wouldn't you know the next week I was sick! A horrible cough and all I could do was drink hot water with honey.

Hope you're on the mend now!

Brenda said...

So true! The world is completely crazy about now.

Jennifer P. said...

Got my gas for $1.43 today. $24.98 to fill up my whole van. I was shouting hallelujah in the parking lot :) !

It is funny though, just how much can change in 2 weeks.

Glad you're back!!!...though you've never really "left" my life ;). Glad too that you're feeling back on top!

Gombojav Tribe said...

Add to your dream that Obama's senate seat is being sold to the highest bidder? Maybe we could find it on ebay.

Lisa said...

Lauriej said...

Are you implying there is something wrong with sharing a prescription? ;-) We pass antibiotics around here like a cup of sugar!

Very cute post...

Jenkins said...

Happy to hear that you are feeling better, no fun to be sick and when it drags out...ugh!
Makes you love the little germ balls, I mean children, even more.
Hopefully everyone in your house is better and no more sick.

Jenni said...

I love that your absence coincided so nicely with mine. It makes catching up sooo much easier. So, thanks!

S'more of my Thoughts said...

LOL! omg, you are hysterical!! Hope you're feeling better soon!!!

Heather said...

We were about to send out a search party. Thank goodness you've made it through the two week sickness. I'm sorry you were sick for TWO WEEKS, though!! You earned your Codeine, sister. I missed you!

Heather said...

...And I just noticed that this post was from last Tuesday.

*she bows her shaking head*

Willie Earl!! Release the hounds again!!

karin said...

wb as they say in chat! Thanks for all the work you do in taking us to all kinds of awesome place!

Amy Fichtner said...

Very Funny, Thnaks for sharing!!!

amy said...

Very funny! Sounds more like a nightmare!

Michelle said...

I have put out an APB for you again.

Tina said...

Too funny!!

GrandmaKathleen said...

Welcome back. You were missed.
Sorry to hear you were sick, especially around the holidays, somehow our resistance gets down and it because easier to catch the germs.
The gas here in RI is $1.59 Love to see it keep getting lower.
Sure hated filling the car when it was $4.34

Tracy P. said...

Knockknockknock...hello? Um, Mr. Blog Police, did you accidentally throw Debbie in the slammer with O.J.? You shouldn't have done that. She is really really nice, and O.J.? Not so much. Let her out now, or you will be very sorry! She has a lot of Mother Bear type friends. I'm just saying.

Sidney (Sixy Mama) said...

Hope you had a very Merry Christmas and you're having a Happy New Year!

Karen said...

LOL... you are tooo funny :-)

But you're MIA again. Mind you, I can't talk, I went MIA as well...

Hope all is well and hurry back, you are missed.

Hope you had a great Chritmas and wishing you a Verry Happy New Year..

Jenkins said...

Hello lovely lady,
I just wanted to check and make sure you were around. I say you briefly today...cars passing in the parking lot, and wanted to say hello!

Sissy said...

my favorite post in quite some time. OJ Simpson, finally going to jail, 'bout damn time.

HeathahLee said...

We miss you, Debbie!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Knock Knock... hello? Um.... Dip lady? Are you there???

Over a month! Are you still there??

Jenni said...

Hey, I was just over at your other site. . . where you live these days. I think you should add an option to your poll: d. You just come over here to read a little something written by me (Debbie) since nothing's going on over at the other site.

I would check that box, I would.

Kimba said...

Hi girl! Glad to see that you've rejoined the land of the living!

Nikki said...

LMAO...as a fellow...ummm...missing blogger I understand you needed the 3 weeks to recover from your son's 2 days cold. I needed time to recover from the birth of my son...who's going to be 7 months now. Yeah, I guess I better get blogging before the "blog" police finds me huh
