A Special Thanks...
Once your kids get sick, it's almost like a zombie movie - you know you've been bitten by a zombie, so you just have to sit back and wait to turn into one. By Saturday night, I was resigned to my fate. And sure enough, I haven't been able to eat anything but a banana for three days. Fortunately, I was able to work my way through the entire first season of "Friday Night Lights," which is a spectacular show.
UPDATE: Today is my wife's turn to be sick. The germ is now an outstanding 4-for-4 in our family, making it the Ryan Braun of viruses.
