TV Germs

TV Germs (Photo credit: dsb nola)

This is what the inside of my throat looks like, I’m sure.

I’ve got germs.  I’ve got the bug that’s been doing the rounds in this house, in this town, in this country, in other countries, in the blogosphere.

My family have had it.  My friends have had it.  My blogging friends and family have had it.  Now I have it.

It’s your fault.  I’m not talking to you.

    Well whoever gave it to you, has also given it to me. I’m not talking to them either… 😦

    Enjoy your writing………..not so sure about your germs!

    I don’t have it. But if I get it, I’m blaming you.

    …”that’s been doing the rounds in this house, in this town, in this country, in other countries, in the blogosphere.”

    The BLOGOSPHERE! SO THAT’S where Little Mr. picked up his current ear painful infection!
    ergo I’m blaming you Tilly… don;t tell me otherwise,

    …we aren’t listening!

    p.s. Get better soonest 🙂

    (someone please pass this note to Tilly… she’s not speaking to us)

    Too late, TB; you talked to the wrong person already. Feel better soon. As for me, back spasms kept me home today. I’d trade for germs anytime. As it is, muscle relaxers and Jacuzzi may or may not help. I know this sounds like a mini vacation but, trust me, ’tisn’t. Time will tell.
    Here endeth the whine.

      Oh Ron sorry to hear that your back is playing up, you get better soon as well.


    • Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife October 11, 2012 at 10:31 #

      Poor Ron! Feel better soon, Ron, do. Oh, do, Ron, Ron.

      You must have heard that a million times but I’ve been looking for an excuse to use it 🙂

    Get better soon, the bugs haven’t made it over to my house but Portugal has got it. Fingers crossed that we stay clear of these insidious little blighters.


    • Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife October 11, 2012 at 10:31 #

      Let’s hope so. Portugal and England have the longest-standing peace treaty of some time or other, so hopefully, no attack 🙂

        You make me laugh with your quick wit.

    Feel better Tilly, if I get it who do I blame since you aren’t speaking to us? Don’t worry I’m creative I’ll find someone.


  9. slpmartin October 10, 2012 at 16:33 #

    Hope you feel better soon…take good care.


  10. Al October 10, 2012 at 16:35 #

    Technically, Tilly, you’ve never spoken to me anyway. But I am sorry I bugged you.


  11. vivinfrance October 10, 2012 at 16:48 #

    Did you catch it from Pseu? I do hope the bugs disappear quickly.


  12. misswhiplashmisswhiplash October 10, 2012 at 17:45 #

    I have not got it….and I do not want it…get rid of yours very soon


  13. Pseu October 10, 2012 at 18:02 #

    Think of it this way; it’s boosting your immune system.

    (Mines nearly gone now)

    I hope you feel well soon


  14. Patti October 10, 2012 at 19:36 #

    Seems everything can be communicated online these days! Feel better soon.


  15. Tom (Aquatom1968) October 10, 2012 at 20:04 #

    Well, that explains something Tilly. Whoever gave the germs to you gave them to me too. Harrumph.


  16. kateshrewsday October 10, 2012 at 20:18 #

    Sorry about that.


  17. SchmidleysScribbling October 10, 2012 at 21:12 #

    Don’t blame me. I’ve been away. Did you have your flu shot? Bad Girl.


  18. lanceleuven October 10, 2012 at 21:26 #

    Speak to the Tate Modern about that. It’s looks like exactly the kind of thing they give the Turner Prize to.

    BTW Without thinking I clicked the ‘like’ button. For the record, it wasn’t in response to liking the fact that you’re ill! 😉


  19. barb19 October 11, 2012 at 00:10 #

    I’ve had it (don’t blame me for yours, we live 12,000 miles apart), and I don’t want it again.
    Get better soon.


  20. eof737 October 11, 2012 at 04:41 #

    Woman up and get well soon. 😆 Is that why I haven’t seen you? Are you trying to get me to mail maltesers to you? I live in the US of A honey! M&M’s yes, M’s in red box no! Get better 😆


  21. sarsm October 11, 2012 at 13:31 #

    Feel well soon.


  22. Grannymar October 11, 2012 at 16:04 #

    I’m staying a mile away… I am due my flu shot on Monday.

    Have you ever noticed that eating Saltine Crackers feels good on a sore throat? This makes me think that we should invent a new cold remedy: Salted Malteser Crackers. Our slogan could be, “Sooth your sore throat and your sweet tooth all at once.”

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.

    It’s amazing how those germs can look like a piece of graphic print. Maybe even framed art? Project Runway could use that material for a slutty skirt. I’d wear your germs


    • Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife October 13, 2012 at 11:18 #

      I don’t think a nicer thing has ever been said to me 🙂


      • Forever Bound Art October 17, 2012 at 20:56 #

        That was a good belly laugh! I was watching Project Runway and I thought of you. Seriously, Chris used his mother’s ex-ray for material inspiration. Germs really could happen! Your sickness could be famous. I seriously would wear your germs. 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
