Antidote to the last post?

Ahem…So the biggest prince got sent home today because he had a bad stomach ache in class. Came in looking like a wet weekend. Hasn’t interfered at all in his killing mercenaries on the Wii but when I pass by he gives me the obligatory kvetch.

The school secretary just called. (One of these days I shall have to tell her what my name really is, politely). Wanted to see how he was doing, which I thought was quite sweet. I told her he still has some tummy discomfort. And here is where I got some interesting unsolicited advice. I need to take a spoon of hot water and a spoon of oregano, mix them together and make him drink it. It will cure him in no time. I thanked her kindly, hung up the phone and dissolved into fits of giggles.

It was just surreal. Oregano? Hot water? For the tummy? At least she cares???

  4. she may be on to something, according to the internet oregano (oil of oregano though, not dried Oregano) can help with colitis (inflammation of gastrointestinal tract that causes stomach aches)

    Something is different around here….you signing your name different? Oh, you added MILNER 🙂

  8. Does the prince have Wii Sports Resort?

    • Um….maybe? do things get blown up?

      • No, this one is a collection of 12 sports games. There is basketball (3-point shooting and 3-on-3), table tennis, golf, bowling, air sports, water sports, archery, Frisbee, cycling, and there is a swordplay game (one of the games under this is called “Super Slice,” where players can try to be the first to slice various objects along a given line).

        I don’t know if the prince is interested in this, but I like it because it allows me to be active, not just sitting there moving a joystick.

  9. I should have kept a list of all the outrageous suggestions I keep getting.
