    The regular flu. Not Covid 19.
    But out of a abundance of caution, I wrapped her from head to toe in plastic. She didn’t seem to like the idea at first but after a few minutes she quieted down. I have her in the back bedroom now. I think that she is sleeping.
    Rest is the best cure.

    You can tell they need rest when they only fight it for a minute or so.

    BTW, Name brand or generic wrap?

    Are you asking whether he was naked? That's kinky.

    I suspect it is trending towards room temperature.

    Saran Wrap now comes in gas form, although it may be spelled differently.

    Name brand. Need the extra strength fo the first few wraps. After that you can finish up with generic.

    Where did you come up with THAT idea? Intentionally trying to hold heat in or attempting to not allow her skin to do its natural evaporation job?

    Better go check her ... she probably didn't like the idea and then passed out.

    If he wraps her tight enough he shouldn't get sick.

    Good point. Fortunately, my Daughter was kicked out of school so I still have things covered. It was my birthday today so she made a pie for me from scratch.

    Makes it easier if you ask her if "this rag smells like chloroform" before you try to saran wrap her.

    Did you slather her in olive oil first? Preferably Bertoli.

    Happy Birthday.
    Is that lemon meringue? My fave, and often my request for my own BD. Nice tall topping on that one.

    Yes, yes it is, and it tastes as good as it looks. Reminds me how lucky a father I am.
