A little bug and me

A little bug spoke to me today' He told me that I would have to pay For sleeping way too little at night For waking up long before it's light I begged of him to wait a few days, please Not to afflict me with a cough, a cold or sneeze But the little bug just drew a line in the sand It wasn't his business if Pesach** was at hand So I retreated to my room, to vials of medication Drinking tea with lemon, humidifying the air Went to bed early, nerves taut with anticipation Asked the One Above to heal me with a prayer **Pesach, or 'Passover' in English, is the Jewish Festival of Freedom, commemorating the Exodus of the Israelites from Ancient Egypt

Darling, and I hope it is over now; I hope that Passover finds you well, and fully recovered, my friend.

That's right, Panagiota. There are two Seder meals. I was at both of them, of course. (One CANNOT miss those, unless dead). Thanks for the view and the viewpoint! :) gw

Nice humorous story. It's the little things that often catch us out.
