Dear Uninvited House Guest,

Please go away! Mr. Influenza A, B, C or whatever you are. You are not welcome at our house. I'm not sure how you got in; we wash our hands regularly and I always use those santizing wipes on my grocery cart. But somehow you snuck your way into our house and have rendered me useless. You made me miss out on all of the Easter festivites and even made me to sleepy to watch the Living Hope Easter Service on TV.
It is one thing to strike the mother, but simply another to take down her children. Oh, the nerve of you. Benjamin was looking forward to PE today because it was chin-up day. Do you not understand the joy it brings an 8 year old boy to try to beat his PE teacher in chin-ups? Instead, you Mr. Flu, have seized his body, making even holding his head up next to impossible.
Before you even think of taking up residence in Cooper or Dave, please remember that neither of them have done anything to deserve your visit. They are good people and do no harm to others, so please be mindful of that and skip right over them on your way out the door.......................
Oh Yeah, don't forget to take your little subjects: fever, chills, body ache, head ache, cough and congestion with you.

Sincerely,

The Mom

What do you mean you didn't finish the couch potato to 5k? I think running a 5k pretty much means you finished :-)
