Why Polly shouldn’t play hooky

19 Nov

One week ago

SMS from Polly: Won’t be online this morning. Taking the day off to honor veterans and what not.
SMS from Penny: I hate you and I know you’re with your boyfriend.


SMS from Penny: Enjoy your day of Thanksgiving-prep pie making!
SMS from Polly: Will try! Kinda feel like a truck hit me. Would prefer a day in bed with TLC.
SMS from Penny: Oh stop whining and eat some pie dough in my stead.

Two hours later

SMS from Polly: Wish granted. Sister Wives marathon it is. Definitely have the flu. Probably passed it off to Oxford.
SMS from Penny: I WOULD say it serves you both right for your Veteran’s Day staycation last week but I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.
SMS from Polly: First fever since age 9, everything hurts, everything is cold, stomach is rebelling, want to hide in a ditch, too pained to type definitive articles. And I got the shot so this baby is resistant. And now I can’t take a day off because a fever was my excuse last time.
SMS from Penny: Well… use it as a lesson going forward? Also I love you?
