Wisdom on Wednesdays: Look Away

When your beautiful child is sitting in front of you, pouring his heart out about how much everything hurts, and you're nodding and holding him and wishing you could make everything better, and he looks you square in the face before taking a very deep breath...


Because if you don't, he will sneeze tiny invisible droplets of sick all over your face. And you will regret it. Because everything will hurt.

How are you feeling?


  1. oh, that's funny! I'm feeling good. I've had enough germs for the winter. Done my quota. Now I'm hibernating in my writing den.
