A couple of weeks ago I had a sore throat. I haven't had a sore throat in years since I had me tonsils out as a kid. Thanks to steroids I have now got another poorly part causing me aggravation and discomfort of the same strain as the sore throat. I tend to get a bit miserable and grumpy when this happens but don't let it show as I might upset the staff.
Parker is very good at picking up on these things. I don't know how he does it? Sometimes I think he is Psychic.
To lift my mood Parker has a new game called "Do You Know What It Is Yet".
When he gets a break at the hobby job he goes to when not minding me, he will send a picture of an object I am not familiar with. I then have to guess what it is and he will send other pictures with clues to help me. This goes on till I figure it out, give up or he has to go back to work. By the time we are done I have emerged from my sulk, found a cure for my (quite minor) poorly and put things in to perspective.
Of course this is not just one sided. Parker knows he can return home and the Grumpy Troll Monster has left the house leaving an atmosphere of peace and serenity.
I have included yesterday's picture for your amusement if you're interested.
My poorly is almost cured (as I knew it would be) and I await the next annoying inconvenience to pop up and blight my day.
