    Dude. The Dairy Queen up by you is dangerous to so much as look at. I can’t believe you ate something from there. Except ice cream, they can’t mess up ice cream. But, you know, if it’s ice cream I’m going for, I’m going to the cow place.

    How was that for a comment that demonstrates just how freakin’ much time I have spent time in your neck of the woods? I do not miss my days of working up there at all! Except the cow place, of course.

    I hope everyone is feeling better soon.

    @Burgh Baby: oh DUDE. There’s a brand new DQ!! lol I know the one you’re talking about, and NO WAY would I eat a burger from there! There’s a new ‘Grill and Chill’ with a drive thru and everything- it’s actually very nice-looking- which is why I thought I’d give it a whirl. It’s 5 seconds from Maggie’s daycare, right on the way home, and Dan was comatose in bed so I was on my own for dinner. I think the freedom threw me and I made a bad, bad choice. I didn’t get sick or anything, it was just not very tasty. Hard, dry, and had mustard on it (barf)

    Dairy Queen is for ICE CREAM, girl. And ice cream would have made a PERFECT dinner on such a day as you had. Have I taught you nothing? ;)

    Hey Jennifer sorry your week has been so crappy. I was sick this past week as well and found a miracle drug simple yet wonderful. It’s the Liquid Tylenol Flu I got the citrus kind and it works wonders. I had a migraine and it actually helped with that as well. Also the Alka Seltzer gel caps are miracles as well. I hope this week gets better for you. Miss and love ya. Hope both turds get better!
