Sick...and tired. Parenting with a cold sucks the mustard

Parenting is a tough job under normal circumstance but when you've got a nasty, beating UNC at Ford Field is easier. Thank God for June, the godsend gift of a partner, parent and immunity factory. Both June and Zo are fine, it's just Dad who's falling apart. It started as a congested chest on Sunday, then morphed into a really congested chest by Monday, then started spreading to my head on Tuesday and is now a full on hammerin' kind of cold. I'm not dying, but I'm sure not doing any kind of decent job livin' either.

As we speak Zo is having a good time playing and Mom is showering for another lng day of picking up Dad's slack, and I just thought I'd get blog a little, you know, ease the congestion.

It's not working.

Top 10 Things that are easier to do than parent with a cold

1. Beat North Carolina at Ford Field.

2. Free Leonard Peltier

3. Discover the true identity of the Zodiac Killer

4. Get Manny Ramirez to cut off all of his dreads.

5. Earn a save from the Detroit Tigers bullpen

6. Breast feed if you're a man (vastly more difficult than if you're a female)

7. Legalize pot

8. Save General Motors

9. Predict the weather in southwestern Ontario or Southeast Michigan

10. Get people to shut up about that whole Appalachian State thing...let it go people.

Absolutely Hilarious Nick-of-Time Footnote:
Aimee just sent this over and I nearly died laughing...loosened up quite a bit of the goodies in my chest and throat. "A Man Cold," that's hilarious. I'm sure I've been there before but this one isn't manifesting itself in such a way as to make me look like a complete git. Still, funny as hell though..the video, not my cold.
