"Conversations" with My Husband…Sort Of

Things have been a little…sniffly…around my house lately. With fall finally unfurling, and a big change in the South Carolina weather, we’re facing that wonderful thing known as “Sinus Season.”


Not to be out-sicked by the many of South Carolinians currently snorting and snotting into their tissues, my husband came down with a case of “I Feel Like Poo.” Thus, our most recent conversations have sounded like this:

Abby: Good morning, honey.
Brian: snnnnorttttttt hack hack spit
Abby: Did you sleep ok?
Brian: AHHH—CHOO! sniff sniff

Abby: Hey, babe. What do you want for dinner?
Brian: unnnnngh cough cough HACK
Abby: Do you feel like eating at all?
Brian: mumble mumble snaaaaaaaaaarrrf
Abby: How about some soup? That might help your throat feel better.
Brian: snooork snooork heeh heeh snoooOOOOrk

Abby: I can’t even BELIEVE that play call. Did you SEE THAT???
Brian: OMGEEE MEE eith…….wheeeeeze cough hack wheeeze…
Abby: I mean, that was SO NOT pass interference!!!!! Am I right????
Brian: *nodding as he pulls out a tissue* HOOOOOONNNNNNNK HOONK HHONNK HONK.

Brian: zzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz….

Abby: Are you feeling any better, babe?
Brian: snaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarf

Fortunately, after a weekend of rest and Claritin, Brian seems to be well on the mend. Thank goodness. I don’t know how much more snorting and snuffing we can take. Feel better soon, babe! XO
