So! Even though Supa claimed she wanted to get some rest this weekend, ya’ll should know by now that was just some wishful ass-thinking, right? For starters, the Ruff Ryders went on and busted my plans by coming down with their own colds. So basically, Supa was runnin’ around playing nursemaid – stocking the house up with juice, water, soup, cold medicine, PSP games, Nickelodeon magazines, etc. , and of course whipping up their favorite snack of Supa's famous fried chicken wings...
And then, of course, I got to speak to one of my academic crushes…wow! Afterward, Supa had agreat big grin on her face!
By Sunday night, though, I was weary enough to start making the Ruff Ryder multiple cups of Supa’s Special Hot Tottie – slices of fresh lemon, honey, tea, cayenne pepper (clears up the mucus), all boiled in hot water, and laced with a reasonable amount of Jamaican rum. After which, The Boy and The Girl were knocked out on the sofa, snoring like somebody’s old drunk uncle. I am happy to report they feel better, thanks to my efforts and constant insistence that they keep washing their hands, eating their soup, taking their meds, and most importantly, kept their socks on.
The Girl, clown that she is, came back into the living room after that instruction dressed like this:
with her pajama pants all scrunched down in her socks. She was being a bit of a smartass. She looked absolutely ridiculous, and Supa got a good laugh! Why are Supa's spawn so goofy? Hmmmm…….. (also pictured is The Pooch)
But hey! Seems black folks were doing the damn thing and shining all over the globe today!
