Life kinda gets in the way sometimes. Its all those never things, again. Like saying "I will never join facebook."
Oops. I guess I screwed that one up, too.
Other things, I simply wished wouldn't happen. But you don't talk about them because really, they aren't on your radar. So you don't think you have to worry about them. Like sitting in the drivers seat of a car with two insane children who are really excited to go to that perfect ice cream shop that happens to be next to that really awesome park and that really cool sculpture garden...and realizing, a half hour out that you have to turn around. Because you're 372% sure you have a bladder infection.
You can't drive with a bladder infection. You just can't.
Then you explain to the insane children what a bladder infection is. They want to know how you get tested for one of those. You tell them "You have to pee in a cup."
Don't ever tell two young boys about peeing in a cup. Because its probably the funniest thing in the whole world. I mean, really. Hilarious. And they will repeat "pee in a cup" at least five hundred times. Its not funny to you, however, because you are now 412% sure you have a bladder infection. And you're driving. But you can't drive with a bladder infection.
The whole thing turned out to be a learning experience, though. We learned that there is an urgent care really close to the house. We learned that we hate the medication Cipro. Taken without food, it makes you feel completely drunk. Taken with food, you're just tired. Really tired. Bump on a log tired. We learned how bladders and kidneys are related, and that if the medication ain't doing its thing, you will end up with a kidney infection. Which is exactly what happened to MamaTea. We learned that MamaTea is extra crabby when all of this happens, and that when she discovers you have graffitied your name into an inside panel of the minivan, she's bound to freak out. A lot. Even though it totally washed right off.
Gosh, this learning from life is great. And sometimes funny. If you're a five or six year old boy. :)
