There are some things in life that should NEVER be combined. Things like bleach and ammonia or a 13 year old girl with PMS and Chicken Pox.
Sweet merciful God...the first combo will only result in a little mustard gas...the second is actually scary.
I got the call from school at 11am...the Doc-in-a-Box confirmed Pox and we were in front of the drug store by 11:45. The doc recommended an oatmeal bath.
My first clue should have been when Miss-D asked me to get the "Cinnamon" kind....
She expected me to to come lumbering out of the store with a 100lb bag of Quaker Instant Oats on my back...
A warm bath and her favorite breakfast...you can see why she was a little pissy.
We spent the evening saying things like this:
"Boys just leave her alone"
"Boys just stay away from her"
"Yes I know she is being a wench, just move along"
She was laid out on the sofa with pillows and a blanket. She had a little table next to her with juice, a snack and the remote....
All one had to do to earn her wrath was come NEAR her...breach her perimeter and she went off like a howler monkey.
Finally I heard myself telling her, "You have Chicken Pox. You do not have the plague or cancer...suck it up and shut it. You WILL stop shrieking and hissing or I will send your little pock covered behind to your room for the duration!"
