Home with a Sick Kid – Day 9:
Supplies are getting low. I have been attempting to concoct a meal from the few items that are left in the cupboard. I’m just not quite sure what to make with 3 cans of fire-roasted tomatoes, a can of pumpkin puree, tartar sauce and Froot Loops. I really wish I had one of the contestants from Chopped with me right now.
The natives are starting to get restless. I can feel the anxiety building. There are murmurings in the bedrooms. I fear they may begin working together, for the first time in their lives. I worry for my safety and can finally understand how Piggy felt in Lord of the Rings. Flies. Whichever. Too bad I can’t go back and retake that test I took in 10th grade English.
I am selflessly drinking wine as fast as I can, so that I can use the empty bottles to send messages for help. I am making this sacrifice in order to help my family. I can only hope that they will truly appreciate the lengths I am willing to go to in order for them to be taken care of.
