Sick as a Dog
Still sick but actually getting better and had a pretty nice Christmas overall. Sheba the Cat and I spent Xmas eve and Xmas morning alone; fielded lots of phone calls from family and friends.
I gifted Sheba with a stuffed leopard toy. So far she hasn't touched it but repeatedly returns to it to smell-smell-smell then stand beside it for long periods. I have no idea what she thinks of it. It was made in China so probably has marvelous alien odors ( hopefully no pet poisons nor date rape chemicals. :-) )
Doc said my bronchitis, sinusitis, asthma and allergies weren't contagious so I went with Jeannie and Sean to grand daughter DD's home to have Xmas dinner with her family and the Wild Child.
It was a long trip and I was worn out. Wild Child came home with me to spend a few days and has been babying me. I still sleep a lot.
Where did we get the sayings, "sick as a dog" and "healthy as a horse"?
