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

    I have 3 close friends at school. Outside of school I have one. I'm soon going up to Secondary school. 2 of my friends, Kathryn and Sophie, are quite mean to me and others in the class. They call me names and push me around. I don't like it but afraid to tell them. They are also quite rude to teachers. When it's just me and Kathryn it's fine and I am wondering if it's just Sophie making an impression. I go to a small school (81 pupils) and making friends is hard for me. Please help!!

    Don't worry too, you'll grow up too and live on your own, I noticed that my aunt is unfair to children (except to her child) and I can't wait to be an adult (she's afraid to adults). And when you grow up, don't make revenge to your parents, I know that you still love them. Trust me, things would get worse if you make revenge.
