7 Quick Takes - Vol. 94 (Vile virus, don't argue, grape giggles and more)

--- 1 ---

Boy was I wrong last Friday when I said I wasn't going to get the stomach virus that everyone else in our household had. I'll spare you the splattering details of my weekend. All I'll say is that after dinner Friday night, the next time I even considered eating was Monday morning. And even now a week later I'm not eating as much as I normally would since my stomach is still a little ornery.

This was the first time since 2010 that a horrible stomach virus crippled everyone in my immediate family at the same time. So if this four-year trend holds true, it'll happen to us again in 2018. Maybe I should ask Siri to remind me to plan ahead:

Before the stomach issue hit, we were thinking about ordering Chinese food, and I found something funny. This restaurant forgot to finish filling in its website template and add its own "awesome company slogan."

Never argue with a politician, or at least a politician whose name is Argue. I know nothing about the race for Indian Trail Improvement District Seat 5 in Florida, but my brother sent me this amusing ad.

I wouldn't want to face Ms. Argue in a debate.

My eight-year-old suggested that we play grape and giggle. When we asked her what that was, she said, "Well, you eat grapes and you giggle." Makes sense.

My (almost) two-year-old daughter has a distinct way of looking for things. No matter what she wants, she will take the container, turn it upside down and shake it. Take a look at what she did recently to a big box of fruity snacks and a large container of crayons.

In my latest post for Austin Catholic New Media this week, I took a look at the similarity between priests and police officers. Check it out.

  1. Where do I start? Toilet paper, Gatorade, viruses, crayons, grapes and giggles. Notice how I stayed away from Betty Argue (almost sounds like Betta Argue), scary. Off to read your piece in Austin Catholic. Happy weekend and feel better soon!!!
