I've been sick the past few days. Not he kind of sick where you are pretty sure you're going to die (i.e. the way I feel any time I throw up), but the kind of sick that is "I have a nasty cold and just want to stare into space or nap for hours on end because my head feels like it will explode at any moment." That kind of sick. It's been a challenge to get anything done, and I don't have the luxury of just sitting and staring into space, so I've been trying to keep myself awake and stimulated by my surroundings. That's a fancy way of saying I leave the tv on or have music going at all times because if it's quiet, I will stare and do nothing.
The other night, to try to keep myself from staring into space while I needed to write a paper and lesson plan, I had the TV going and caught this little gem of an infomercial.
And by lost it, I mean I started laughing hysterically and my nose relieved itself of its day of blockage all over my face while I attempted to control the situation. I couldn't. The extreme entertainment I got from this commercial may have been due to the lack of sleep and sickness, but...it was just as funny when I saw it the next day. Mike didn't find it quite as amusing. Then again, the sight of me pointing at the TV screen and crying and laughing and snotting in my raspy voice hysterically was probably a little less than funny.
Snuggie's got NOTHIN on Lazy Forever. Send me one of these bad boys for Christmas, and I'll take myself to the Cuyahoga Valley Railroad and test out the TWO! hatches for you.
It's stuff like this that makes my days worthwhile.
