This One's for You, Dan!
October 16, 2007

This morning, my brother-in-law Dan (the young stud pictured to the right who is wearing what appear to be Reebok Pumps) was kind enough to send me a facebook message. I love getting facebook messages, especially from Dan. You see, Dan is abnormally multifaceted for a senior in college--contemplative like Thoreau, musically talented like Clapton, and blessed with the fashion sense of Dwight Schrute from The Office. I love this kid, and I can never really predict what I'll come across when I open one of his messages. Today's went something like this:

Amy--
I had a very vivid dream last night that Jared was gay, and you didn't mind at all. Oh, and you haven't put up a new blog entry in two days. So get on it.
Dan

Well, many thanks for the tip on Jared, I'll be sure to look into that. And please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in blog entries, Dan. Truth is, I've been a bit under the weather these past few days. In case you're interested, here are two of my symptoms:
Frequent episodes of explosive diarrhea in the very lonely hours of the night.
And constant, intense, insatiable fear, because I fully understand that I might poop in my britches at any random moment.

But really Dan, thanks for the reminder. I hope to be up and posting again tomorrow. I love you, too.

Must be the after effects of the race, huh? :-( Poor Amy. But congrats on the race and the trophy!

Hi Dan! How's it going?? And Amy we all wonder where you are when you don't write...thought you just wanted more people to see those trophies each day!! How are you? what you had is the worst!

I'm so sorry about your explosive diarrhea! I hope you recover very soon.

Doug Cichon said...

I have a gut feeling that second symptom might be shared by those around you, too!

Get well soon, Amy!

haha, I just got sucked into the world of Facebook. I am happy to read your blog, but I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. I hope you feel better soon!

One day you’re riding high collecting trophies on Oklahoma’s race circuit and the next you’re doubled over in cramps on a cold porcelain bowl crapping your brains out and praying for death in the wee small hours of the night…

Life can be so cruel sometimes.
