No, I’m not a spy. Remember the trial in the Marx Brothers’ movie, DUCK SOUP? They ask Chico if he sold the secret code and plans, and he says he sold the code and two pair of plans. If you don’t think that’s funny, you’ve never shopped for a man’s suit.
Anyway, what I actually have is neither a code nor a coat, but a cold.
So I’m going to tuck myself in and wait for lunch, when I’ll have Trees and Leaves. Our youngest grandson calls the herbs in Ramen noodle seasoning packets “trees”, for some reason. My husband’s favorite lunch is Ramen noodles over head lettuce. So that’s what I’ll have for lunch–Trees and Leaves.
Maybe I’ll scrub the bathroom floor today. That’ll teach me to have a cold, dag-nabbit!
WRITING PROMPT: Give a character a cold. Make it a stinky character. Go on, you know you want to.
