We all know that here in the land of Nikki, all is not well with the world.

I'm friggin sick. I blame this entirely on that chick at the drive thru window at Dairy Queen. No, she didn't cough and hack on my food and didn't have that sore through rasp. I'll tell you what she did. SHE WAS NICE TO ME.

Now, I just heard your collective breath intake. Calm yourselves. It gets even more shocking. SHE SMILED AT ME. Yes, that's right. That's enough to have to make you fan yourselves vigorously, but I'm not done. Are you ready for this next part - brace yourselves. SHE THANKED ME FOR STOPPING BY AND WISHED ME A NICE DAY. HOLY FRESH FRENCH FRIES BATMAN!

I would like to say at this point that I thanked her and wished her a good day in return, or even that I can up with some sort of witty response. Sadly, I didn't. All of this courtesy at one time from a fast food joint was so deeply shocking to me that I briefly went catatonic and passed out. I awoke outside of my car laying on the pavement with an EMT kneeling over me using the chest paddles because my heart had stopped. It seems my body just couldn't take the shock.

I gave a quick thanks to the underwear Gods that I was wearing my new black bra and I explained what had happened. They didn't believe me - and really can you blame them? Who would believe such a wild and crazy story. I mean really, how often do we get treated with plain ol' courtesy these days - especially from a teenager hanging out the window at a fast food joint?

I hear you out there. "Nikki, give me a break. This story is ridiculous" That's true, but I will ask you a question.


I think not.

So I'm sticking with my ridiculous and rather unimaginative story. Besides, it sounds a lot better than saying "I should have sanitized my desk and washed my hands better after the guy with a cold came into my office last week."

Damn it.

LOL..great post!!!! ( love the part about the bra)( did your panties match ?).

I think if you were able to go to dairy queen and get a young person to actually be it is very imprssive.....

However, I am not impressed that a young person was able to be that way......I am impressed that they were able to be that way while WORKING THERE.

dairy queen in canada employs mostly the youngest of teens. They are run off their feet seriously, and seldom have an adult on site to keep things running properly.

They are left to deal with tons of customers and serving them treats that literally melt before their eyes when business is booming.

I feel for those kids, especially when for many it is their very first job and first time being on the other side of the fence. With the pace they have to keep up with all the time it is extremely high stress for such young people.

I think there are great kids wanting jobs out there but not alot of really good guidance for them and encouragement. Most are only seen by the management when things go badly not when they are doing their jobs well and then some.

If you ever go there again and see her, take a minute and tell her what a fabulous job she did making your day and in doing so make hers better too.

p.s. sorry I am long winded, but I always am .LOL>

I love the story LOL. Remember lots of fluids, (whiskey and gin work well), I hope you're feeling better soon.

As a renowned practitioner in the spread of infectious diseases, I can inform you Nikki that although it may be 200 in the shade, them nasty bugs are still out there. The only reason we get more colds in winter is because we spend more time cooped up together.

If you look at say, meningitis, it is more of a problem in dry weather because the mucous linings of your nose and throat dry up and don't act as such an effective barrier.

The solution I propose goes like this (though please remember that I am not medically qualified and cannot, therefore, be sued if it all goes horribly wrong):

1) Move to the middle of nowhere
2) Live in a hermetically sealed bubble with an airlock and several air filters
3) Do not allow children any closer than 6 feet, and only if they have been sprayed from head to foot with disinfectant spray
4) Drink beer. Not only will this keep your bucchal linings nice and moist but you will be provided with vitamins and a sense of relaxation - necessary for living in isolation.

Here to help and get well soon

Ah ha. Apparantly your husband's plan of keeping you off balance, by having somone at DQ be nice to you and spike your food is working.

Its hard to get uneven again when your sick........

Feel better soon!!

Yes black bra is always a safe bet. My dear Nikki, your stories, though are never never unimaginative, you hillarious crazy one, you.
What about chicken soup? Will that help?

OOoo I like how St. Jude thinks and listen to Dr. Joe. A man of wisdom and liquor. I wrote his prescription down for future reference.

Get better, girl!

Oh, EW. I hate germs. Some random person walks into your personal space and lo and behold, you have a cold. I wish all germs could just drop dead. Including the ones that are making you sick. Get well soon!
I liked the drive through story. We don't have drive throughs in Milan. Isn't that such a pity?

I have to say, if some angst ridden teenager in a shit first job was that nice to me - I may just pass out too!

So you wernt wearing any panties were you?

I do shit loads of Vitamin C and drink lots of liquids when I'm sick or even feeling a cold coming on. Makes me feel better pretty much the next day.

Hope you feel better soon. Make hubby wait on you and do all the house BS while your sick.

And I think i speak for everyone when I say MMMMMMMMMM DQ!

The story sounds plausible to me.

Not the niceness. Say it ain't so. I'm nasty enough today for all three of us so I've got you covered.

Stupid people spreading germs. I think people should be encouraged to call in more!

And I've updated--just for you. Because you're sick. Feel better.

Glad to see you are feeling better!

If you are anything at all like me, she was nice because she was skurd. The ol' "if you don't behave I will rip your lips off" look is usually enough to ensure fast and friendly service. Heh.

It's no more ridiculous a story than mine which is my daughter has caught a cold from the sick people on the internet.

Feel better!

St Jude - I'm a tequilla kind-of girl. Shots have been duely taken.

Dr Joe - Thank goodness you're here. RE: your prescription

1) I already live in the middle of nowhere.

2) Where can I get one of those?

3) I do that already

4) I hate beer. Will tequilla do?

Carm - Me thinks he schemes far above me sometimes. LOL

Anna - thanks.

Isn't it a sad reflection of our society when we get winded when a teen (of all age groups) is polite, smiling and seemed to be enjoying his/her job?

Great post BTW - hope you're feeling better.
