Holy cow folks!! Mavis has been home from school sick for the last 2 days. She caught the cold-achy body-blech that they do as a result of everyone’s germs inevitably co-mingling in the petri dish that is school. Coupled with an awesome “hi, we’re coming!” RSVP that we didn’t party plan for from the wisdom tooth fairies, it has been just, well, a really awesome few days.
She was home alone today, and The Foty (aka Father of the Year), took her this afternoon to the dentist appointment that she has been, to put it lightly, riding my fanny to make. She was just there a month and a half ago, but if the wisdoms are coming, well, we want to nip that in the bud.
He took her, and yes, they are starting, but they don’t want another visit until they can see the whites… of her teeth. So Foty brought her home, about 4, and went back to the “quarry”.
Well, when he came home at 5:30, what a sight! Mavis had found my secret morning stockpile of Vitamin Water Energy. Each one has 100% niacin, and 50mg caffeine. These are basically the equivalent of a Redbull, marketed as a sports drink, and about 1/3 of the price. I had 3 stashed away, I now have 1 and a dribble. I am surprised she didn’t re-roof the house, she was going a million miles an hour, in 45 new directions, even after I got home at 6:30!
Are you tired, run down, listless? Why don’t you join my happy, peppy daughter and enjoy a Vitamin Water Energy drink, tastes just like candy!
Just kidding. It’s gonna be a long night at the House of Journey. Be responsible, lock up your “sports drinks” people.
