"I was sick."
Yeah, us, too. Well, the germ bags anyway (that'll be my boys).
One comes home with Strep throat and before you know it, he gives it to the other one. It's about the only thing they'll share nicely: diseases.
The one thing I hate about antibiotics is the side effects. It's usually a bad case of "the squirts" but I've once developed mold - MOLD - on the back of my tongue. It was gross. It was fuzzy. Like sporting a mustache on the inside of my mouth.
Anyway, if there's one thing my boys can't handle, it's pain. And I couldn't possibly use the same reasoning my mom used to say to me.
She'd say, "You think that's painful? Wait 'till you get your period!"
Granted, I was only eight but to her credit - she was right.
The last thing I needed was to continue this infected weekend with sitting by the side of the toilet, holding the hand of one of my boys cramped with the runs. Since learning that the best way to stave off the evils of antibiotics is to eat yogurt, I've been giving the boys yogurt-by-the-gallon.
But the idiot that I am, I'd been serving the yogurt before the medication and cancelled out ten dollars worth of Activia.
That's like putting a rubber pair of gloves on after you wash the dishes (get dirty, you pervs). Fortunately, I wised up. It took me a while but I figured it out - after all, it's not a printer.
Go ahead, use my dumb ass experience as a lesson: yogurt comes after taking the antibiotic. Two hours if you must know. And bananas, green leafy prebiotic food are recommended to be consumed throughout.
As for lamb? Here's the score:
