UNDER THE WEATHER

TODAY’S WORRY

I just sat down at the computer to spread my germs all over the keyboard and make some sort of entry. I was thinking I’d just write a short post since I am feeling pretty crummy with a bad cold. But then I typed the title, “Under the Weather,” and it made me wonder why being sick is called “under the weather.” Well, of course, I had to look it up. (Isn’t the internet wonderful!) It seems that “Under the weather” is a nautical term that was originated in the British navy. When a sailor was ill, he was kept below decks, and thus, under the weather. I’m no sailor and I’m not a very good sickie either. I have got to get better soon because Little Bruno aka Nathan is already a week late and sure to make an appearance soon. I don’t want to traumatize him by wearing a mask and protective gloves the first time we meet.
