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

    throughout school I have always been picked on weither it be because of my interests or just my personality. In middle school I was called ####### everyday by all the guys in my grade. One of my teachers even bullied me and my mom never believed me because my teacher was so nice to her... I ended up crying on the 3rd day of my freshman year because the kids in my class were so mean to me... I'm gonna be a sophomore in highschool this year and I really don't want to go back to school because I'm afraid that it will be a repeat of freshman year... I need advice on how to make the best of the rest of school if I have to deal with the people that bully me...

    My mom. She utterly hates me and whenever we fight she not only takes all my things away in a rage so I can't talk to anyone online, she screams about how I'm stupid, lazy and a horrible person and other similar bad stuff. Thanks for the self esteem boost Mom (:
