Blog in the Time of Cholera

The international bestseller

Entering the bedroom, I knew something was wrong: there was a naked baby peeing on the bed, a put-upon wife sobbing on the sheets.  I extended my hand; she took it willingly, looked at me with blazing eyes.

“She is blazing.” I touched our child’s head. It was true. The forehead was hotter than my wife’s eyes. I reflected on earlier times, better days when I could sleep. I also recalled the times during which my wife would slumber. I remembered the nights, those glorious nights, when it was peaceful, when our little offspring, snug in her bed, would pass the night without expelling a single slug-like loogie. The poor dear—I looked at her now, her brow fevered, her baby voice husky, and she spoke to me:

“I will never sleep again.”

And we believed. God help us, we believed.

That’s why I haven’t been blogging. Happy holidays, everyone. Higher quality content coming soonish.

    One day, they will make baby nyquil. Then there shall be sleep. Until then, courage…

  3. Oh, not good…she must sleep. I hope that was just temporary. Is she sleeping better? I, too, remember when I lay in bed in peaceful slumber, many moons ago…
