Text Messages from High School ...


Keaton: Mom I'm so sick.

Me: What's wrong?

Keaton: I can't even swallow. Megan (Prom date) is being tested right now for Mono or some Mexican Flu that's going around.

Me:
SWINE FLU????

Keaton: Ya and I shared her drink of water.

Me: Turning pale, feeling flush and having visions of burning down the house to save my family from a pandemic ... since Keaton was in Mexico a few weeks ago.

*****

Me: Gary, Keaton's Prom date is being tested for Mono or Swine Flu and Keaton is now sick.

Gary:
Start bleaching EVERYTHING!

Me: Turning pale, feeling flush and dreading all the work - very aware that this is bigger than bleach ... now my throat hurts.

*****

Keaton: Mom, Megan says it's just Strep Throat.

Me:
You are to breathe on NO ONE!

At least it's not Swine Flu.
