In my defense, I have a nasty cold today, so every time I tried to lift my self off of my pillow, I was soundly smacked back down by the pounding in my head.
While I was neither productive nor efficient, I survived, so that's a good thing.
And two Willies got me through the day. I share those with you here.
The First Willie
My husband, in response to our FEMA level surroundings and our sound-barrier-breaking children, asked me today if we will ever have a clean, peaceful, comfortable home. Today was his turn; sometimes it's me asking him. But today it was his turn to ask me, and I gave him the usual unsatisfactory answer: Yes. Really. I'm nearly certain. Yes, we will. I think. Yeah. Sure.
Then, tonight, the better answer hit me, a la Willie Shakes:
If these children have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended.
That you have but slumbered here,
While these tyrants did appear...
That gave me a smile that got me through washing the dishes.
Most of the day, however, I was lifted and carried by Bill (The Second Willie) Cosby. So I close out this weekend with a clip from his 80's stand up show Himself. I watched nearly the entire show today, and laughed myself silly, while the house went to hell in a hand basket all around me. Enjoy!
