A Bit Tragic, But Horrendously Funny

There have been a few times in my life where I have been very, very sick.  And by sick, I mean a temp over 103-104*.  The times I have been this sick usually corresponded to having strep throat--an illness that I would get twice yearly while I worked at an elementary school.  (Kids are disease-riddled little goobers and they LOVED to give strep to me.)  I never managed to have any great, funny experiences while I was in the death-throes of strep--I saved all of THOSE adventures for when I was hopped up on Demerol--I did find a girl who wrote about HER illness and trying to run a 5K race.  I laughed so hard that the cat looked at me funny.  Here is Allie and her blog titled Hyperbole and a Half.  Her story of the race is entitled Texas.  Be sure to look around her blog when you get there--she is one funny person.  And her illustrations are great, too.  (Read her post Things That Can Make You Feel Like an Idiot Almost Instantly, too.)

I'm sure you're going to enjoy the blog! And be sure to read her post on the spider--something you will be able to relate to. ;)

OMG, you find the best stuff! I love the drawings, and I laughed so hard! Once again, I can blame you when I spend way too much time looking at a website or a blog. ;-)

I could spend way too much time on that site! And I think the drawings are what makes it so great! The girl has a way about her.

With that kind of blog, I have to wonder if the stories are all true, since the drawings seem to take quite a bit of time to do. Whether it's made-up or real, it sure is funny!

Looking around the blog, she does say that all of her stories are based on fact. However, as is the case with ALL good comedy, she exaggerates 'a bit.' :D

Nothing wrong with that!

A little exaggeration ALWAYS makes for a better story. :D
