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

    Dear dish it, my friend first met eachother on the first day of kindergarten we sat next to one another and we became close. we were BFF's throughout 1st to 2nd grades. then, the second grade teacher realized there were alot of kids in the class. and same w the 3rd grade teacher. so, we had to have a split class. my friend was in the split. I was not. It all seemed like the teachers were doing somthing... weired. all the girls (well, almost there were only 6 girls on one half) were in the split. and all the boys were in regular . AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS WEIRED! :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( all the boy BFF's and the girl BFF's were SPLIT. me and my friend,kids named Nia & Georgia, Isaac& Ethan, and more. it was so sad for all of us.2 months later, I got homschooled. 2 years later im back in public with my 4th grade self. everything had changed. a bunch of people were obsessed w\ a girl my age named kassidy. im neighbors w\ kassidy and she is REALLY cool and nice. but the whole I  [s:sm3/1jw1] kassidy crew got mean. if I asked them to play they would say. "If Kassidy is playing I will" or I would want to be parteners with kassidy on something and they would freak out. anyway jasmine NEVER invited my to anything, and I am trying to be nice to her ( ice cream money, homework help, comfort when sad, ect.) And not to mention I invited her to 3 things!!! on the bright side she came to 2 :thumbsup :thumbsup she also embarassed me by saying that she was moving I freaked out  because I cared about her and I would cry all the time. I even held onto her and said sadly, "PLEASE DON'T GO!!  :sad :sad . later i found out that she was not moving, she was going to CA for a vacation. even the teacher was in on it!! :mad :mad anyways, my parents told me that i should just let go of her. But i am not ready. HELP??? :e :e :e :e :e

    When I was a child I wanted glasses SOO bad, cuz I wanted to copy my mom and sister. And also, I thought they looked cool. I wear glasses now. I have had them for 2 years and honestly I don't mind them. Although, this year I am gonna pry get contacts for swimming better and stuff like that. But if you don't need glasses I wouldn't recommend wearing them. They're not bad, but trust me after a while you will pry not like them as much. But hey, that's my opinion. If you want to do it I'm not gonna stop you. Do what makes you happy in the long run. And tell your friends that they are non prescription if you don't need them, but still get some.

    I agree I was afraid of that first too. Eventually I just began inviting my friends over and they don't use it/practically obsess over it like I do but they understood why I use kidzworld and not many other forms of social media.

I can't talk to parents. They would put me in trouble for falling in love. They believe I can't date until age 20. Aw, well, my advice for you would be to talk to your parents about it. There's no point trying to sneak around like those films and it is better for your mind if you talk to them about it. It can be super difficult I know but if you and your parents get along really well then you guys can talk about it and make it work. On the other hand, if your parents ban you from falling in love as you put it, then I think it's better just to stay as friends with him.
