I feel like... a four-letter word

Just as I thought, I had all the incompatibility issues fixed by Sunday, however, something unexpected came up. I got sick. I'm in bed with fever. Yuck! Although I am using my laptop. Connected.

I feel like uttering a string of four-letter words, only I was never that good at cussing, so I'm left with the bland two familiar words, the F one and the shite one.

I hope that by tomorrow or Thursday... you know the rest.

Good authors too who once knew better words
Now only use four-letter words
Writing prose.
Anything goes.
Cole Porter, "Anything Goes"

Flu sucks.

I always prefer getting the one's were DELERIUM is programmed somewhere in the DNA snippet of the virus engaging my immune system.

Little plays, acting out on my bed cover, upwards dream, downwards rush

It just seems like one is so easily attended by thought and amusement when delerium strikes.

Hope you feel better soon.

Melly, you are making me blush. :-)

Get well soon.

Hey Melly, here's a few of my 'words' (I was never any good a swearing either...actually I utter one when I was young, got my mouth washed out with soap and was told to create my own words, so that's what I did)

Anyway my favorites (and most used are)
-fiddlesticks
-fudge buckets
and
-chocolate covered grasshoppers which has been shorten (over the years) to fudge hoppers, cause where you're mad and you're trying to swear - chocolate covered grasshoppers just takes too long to say :D

Hope I put a smile on your face and that you're feeling better.

Ah but the f-word is so versatile. It can be any part of speech.

Hope you're feeling better soon.

I wish I had that problem. I've got swearing down to a fine art.

Feel better soon!

Though you're feeling under the weather, do know this. I've enjoyed the chance I've had to read up what you've had on your blog these last few days. I especially liked the part about writing when you're self-conscious. Most folks don't realize even that they are self-conscious, let alone that it shows.

Jack, Benjamin, Jonathan - thanks :)

Trée, hope you managed to handle my "cursing". Thanks.

Jennifer, wow, some swear words you've got there. Totally you :)

Pat, I'll let you conjugate the F-word :) Thank you.

Deborah, didn't expect this from you. But you surprised me on a number of things, so I should just stop being surprised! And thanks.

Rdl, LOL! Thanks.

Liz, thanks!
