Simon's Blog - October 3, 2006

October 3, 2006

I'm getting ready to perfect my "look sick" routine for this week. I don't do this routine very often - usually only once or twice a year. But I've got two really hard tests coming up on Wednesday and Thursday and the baseball playoffs are on TV during the day this week - so I figure it's the perfect day to stay home "sick".

My basic strategy is too start coughing during dinner the night before and to tell my parents how my head is pounding and I feel like I'm going to throw up (I may also casually mention that one of my friends has the flu and that it seems to be "going around.") The key is to look convincing but not be too dramatic or they'll know I'm up to something. After dinner, I'll ask my mom if she has any aspirin or couch drops and I'll go to bed early - like at 8:OO. The next morning, I sleep in late and act really groggy when my mom comes in to wake me up. I'll tell her how sick I am and if she looks doubtful, I usually head to the bathroom and make really loud puking noises (being sure to flush the toilet before she arrives, so she can't see if I've really puked). That's usually enough to get my mom to say the magic words: "you better stay home from school today."

I don't want to look like I'm super sick or else my mom will wanna take the day off work and take me to the doctor - which means I'll miss the baseball game and end up wasting a perfectly good day off school hanging out with my mom. Totally not part of the plan. Anyway, I gotta go practice my "fake cough" - and check out who's starting for the Twins tomorrow.

Have you ever faked being sick because you didn't want to go to school? Did you manage to pull it off? about your best secrets and strategies for appearing sick, when you're really not. I'll post a list of the best ideas.

Later,
Simon

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

    I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
