Grace in Small Things #6

The context: my 2nd day home sick with a cold.  Ken works from home so he's around to witness all the sneezing.

1)  Ken called in sick for me so that I wouldn't have to deal with talking to co-workers first thing in the morning when I was all bleary and phlegm-clogged.

2)  Then he brought me a bagel with marmalade and almond butter and a glass of cranberry juice for breakfast - in bed. 

3)  Later, he came out to the living room check on me and found me wilted on the couch in front of the TV.  Without a word, he brought a blanket and tucked it all around me and up under my chin.

4)  "Are you hungry for lunch?  How about Mexican?  I'll just go to the store, and when I come back I'll cook you a nice, hot lunch."

5)  He also brought home a big jug of orange juice.

Your Ken is dreamy. He's really really wonderful to you. I hope you feel better soon.

When you're done with him send him over my direction. Tell him Mexican is good with me too. Cough.. hack...

Ken is such a sweet guy. Everyone needs a man like him!

When Ken's done over there, send him up north to Maple. I'm feeling a bit under the weather too. And I prefer Italian to Mexican.

Next time I am sick, can Ken come down for a few days to take care of me??

Can I borrow Ken for a while too? :D

By the way. You've won an award. You'll have to go to my blog to find out what and then you can kill me, after Ken's been to visit, that is.

Cough..cough...

I'm seeing a good business opportunity in the possibility of Rent-A-Ken. Someone just needs to invent a teleportation device to eliminate the barriers of travel time, and we'd be off to the races!

Now is everyone actually sick all at the same time, or are some of you faking because you want orange juice and homemade burritos?

I'm not sick at all. That was a fib. I just want some orange juice. But I don't live that far.
