Don't Say the B Word

I hate to be the one to give you bad news...but...Boomer Chick is sick. Bring out the Boomer Meds and Boomer Chicken Soup, guys...I sure do need it.

It started out with a sore throat...then...BAMMMM...I think I have the B word. Can't say the B word because then my brain will see it, and it will be confirmed. I get the B word once a year for the past three years, and always in April..my doctor even joked about it. But, last year, just before April, I told myself I wasn't going to get it. And, miraculously, I didn't get it.

I thought, now this must be the way to cure yourself! Tell yourself that you aren't going to get something, and dang if it doesn't work!

Well, B sneaked up on me. April has long since been gone, here it is October already...I don't get the B word in October!

Well, it caught me off guard. Damnit.

So, anyway, I've not had to buy cigs for 2 days...first time that's happened since the last time I got the B word.

But, I still feel like shit.

So many projects have to be finished, so many emails I need to answer, so many this, so many that, and it's all I can do to hold my head up long enough to finish a blog post.

I will have some good news in a few days. The Writersville Gang and I are working on a Halloween eBook which is going to be absolutely free for the taking. Hopefully, I'll be able to announce the eBook's release soon...just have to find the energy to get the webpage finished, and the book edited/finished.

We'll be having a Christmas one come out, too, so lots of good things ahead.

Going back to bed now...have a wonderful Tuesday!


  1. Botulism? I thought that was deadly! Get well soon!

  2. Oh, Dorothy, I'm so sorry to hear you're sick. But what is the "B" word? Here are cyber hugs and wishes for your return to good health soon.

  3. Sorry you are so sick. I know what the "B" word is because it was one of my biggies for awhile. I got sick during vacation and sweated that it would end up a sinus infection but luckiuly remained a cold. Hope you get better soon and take care of yourself so it doesn't turn in to the "P" word.

  4. Ah yes - just what I thought. That can be so nasty! Thakfully, I haven't had that in years. I wish you well soon!

  5. Huh? B word? If you have been off the cigs for two days, why not just go ahead and quit them altogether? Think of all the money you would save!

  6. Okay, the next letter is R but I'm not saying anymore. It's just a cold...it's just a cold..it's just a cold....;o)
