I had an awesome Saturday afternoon, all alone in my own house. I cleaned a little, I read a little, I took a nap. Heaven. All because my best friend invited Susie and Rachel over to play with her daughters. And then Saturday night she texted me to say she had just found lice crawling all over her daughter's head.
You know, I didn't want a nap THAT badly.
And, yes, this HAS happened before. In fact, more than once. I blame our stupid local school, with their lack of a no-nits policy and their out-and-out refusal to notify other parents when there is head lice going around the classroom.
I also blame the Obama administration. I pay my taxes. Shouldn't I be able to live a life free of parasitical infestations? We need a little Seal Team 6 action here, Mr. President! Forget those Somali pirates. The real enemy is here at home, lurking on the heads of our school-aged children, threatening to drive their mothers to madness.
Just ask Michelle - I'm thinking she would agree with me on that.
