Metal Fatigue

23 Feb

I think I’ve infected the appliances

I went into the spare room at the first throat tickle and avoided all contact with the Hub and it seems to have worked: his compromised immune system didn’t cave at the first sneeze spray like it usually does.

Give me my mofackin' pot pie!!!   298/365

However, my rotten germs needed to go somewhere.  Suddenly, the TV is showing wavy lines; the fridge freezer has a blockage; the PC demanded a new power supply and the dishwasher gave up the ghost.

Coincidence?  I think not.

    If you venture anywhere near me, I will bop you!

      Hehe! Sounds like you’re the one who’s infected now 🙂

        It’s the winds blowing the dust and pollens everywhere. If only it would rain!

    Haha, you made me smile. I had an instant picture of your germs flying towards the appliances! Great 6WS 🙂

    That sounds expensive!

    After reading the six words, but before reading the rest of the post, I imagined all you electrical appliances coughing and sneezing everywhere 😀

    Yikes! Maybe you should stay away from the computer! 😉

    I hope you’re feeling better soon.

    I suppose appliances could be feeling sympathy symptoms. Could be. Be careful the computer doesn’t start acting up. Feel better very soon.

    I woke up with a sore throat today, but after drinking iced coffee, I feel better. Best wishes, Tilly.

    Troubles usually come in threes, but you have to go one better and have four problems

    WARNING: DO NOT TOUCH THE MALTESERS! They may be contaminated by your bugs.

    Worrying about a computer virus was bad enough. But a refrigerator virus? a tv virus? a toaster virus? Uh, oh.

    That sounds a little spooky and poltergeisty. I am happy that the Hub has emerged unscathed from the onslaught of germs and that you are at last on the road to recovery. Hooray! Boo on the appliances.

    I’m feeling queasy just reading this. Thanks a bunch, TB.

    O T.Bud !!! ~~ Let’s blame it on Global Warming and Sun Spots.

    Have you explored the possibility of gremlins? Have a great weekend!


  16. restlessjo February 23, 2013 at 15:53 #

    I’m eating all the fruit I can to keep your germs at bay. Yuck, the keyboard’s all sticky!

    Oh dear. That doesn’t sound good. I hope it’s not a computer virus you have passed on…. 😉


  18. AJ February 23, 2013 at 16:38 #

    Oh noes! Glad the Hubs didn’t get sick, though!
    Stopping by from 6WS 🙂

    Is that mental fatigue? Sounds awful. Dianne

    Linda, how do you really feel … you have been down with different bugs for months now – your immune system must be very low. Only thing I know that fixes this … Seven Seas Cod Liver capsules with Omega-3. Promise it booth the immune system like nothing else and bugs.. will just pass you by.

    this is so cute. of course you didn’t infect them but it sure seems so. when it rains it pours!!!


  22. McGuffy Ann February 23, 2013 at 19:48 #

    Uh oh. You can share your humour, not your yucky stuff.


  23. Admin February 23, 2013 at 20:51 #

    euk! try cutting open an onion and leaving it in your bedroom tonight cut side up – and see if it collects all your yukky germs for you


  24. bluebee February 24, 2013 at 09:11 #

    Sounds like a power surge of the wrong kind. Hope all feel better soon in your household

    Speaking as a Reiki Master, it’s probably the other way about. The machines might be giving a clue as to what’s going on with you. Fatigue, huh? Feeling wobbly, blocked, weak, and like giving up? Time for a serious rest, perhaps! Which the illness is providing an opportunity for – but for future reference, please rest before your body needs to make you ill in order to get your attention. 🙂

    Oh no!! They always, always all break at once.


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.
